Some Day

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    When I hear her sing that heart tugging song it brings to mind this poem I wrote and posted a few months ago. One, if I recall, with which you are already familiar.

    β€œ Look For Shadows ”
    ~ in a haven I seek ~

    Should I opt
    To elude a mood
    Plays me bleak,
    I would but flee
    To a haven I seek
    In docile shadows,
    Where I may find
    The peace denied
    An austere mind,
    In a state like blind…

    So on a day
    The sun is strong
    I’m gone too long,
    You may perceive
    Held a soul lost
    As surely mine,
    And should you find
    Your way in time,
    Look for shadows
    For there I’ll be,
    An austere mind
    Wants not depart,
    Ill-fated and alone!

  3. Yes, Yes, and yes. Streisand is out of this world–awesome and will always be. Thanks for reminding me.
