What’s Happening at Casita de Luz
Oh, we’ve had rain! Sheer glory to sit in the carport or on the front porch and watch it pour down. Everything in the yard has come back to life as if reborn. The small red September lilies sprang forth along the flowerbed edges, creating bright outlines of color. Lots of new jalapeno & bell peppers too. We decided not to plant a full fall garden this year, but may simply put in some greens for salads. There is lots of clean up work to do now that the weather is so much cooler, including raking and composting leaves and spreading mulch. I opened the blinds one morning to see four of the feral cats, each one curled in sleep in our patio chairs. Made me smile!
Our favorite workman Lonney Hendershot is back this month to do some much needed refurbishing and repainting in our bedrooms and bathroom. New window coverings are also on the “let’s update” agenda.
California visit! WC flew to Los Angeles for the premiere of a documentary based on a chapter from one of his books (Buried Treasures of California), and to meet with three producers relative to the production of a second documentary based on a chapter in another book (Lost Treasures in American History). There was also plenty of discussion about a series that would incorporate elements of his Buried Treasures of America Series as well as the Beyond the Grave Series…and perhaps more! We’ll keep you posted.
What’s New with WC & Books
He’s in the last stages of completing Pat Garrett: The Man Behind the Badge, which he says is “a revisionist history that is certain to antagonize the ‘experts!’”
He has signed two new contracts with Taylor Trade Publishing! They will release Amelia Earhart: Beyond the Grave (the fourth book in the “Beyond the Grave” series) and a 2nd edition of Treasure Hunter: Caches, Curses and Deadly Confrontations (which was one of Indie Reader’s Best Books of 2011).
Speaking of treasure tales, be sure to check out the newest additions to WC’s mini-books at www.treasurehunterguides.com

What Laurie’s Reading
The Harry Potter Series. Yes, I’m a bit behind the times! I’ve known about the books for years, but a friend who specializes in the healing arts suggested that I read them…and since I had recently been in Edinburgh and visited The Elephant House Coffee House where J. K. Rowlings used to come to work on her stories, I thought it was time for me to meet Harry (I like him, but, truth be told, I have a secret crush on Dumbledore—yes, I know he’s old, but what does that matter?)
The Way Of Liberation: A Practical Guide to Enlightenment. “The Reality that these teachings are pointing toward is not hidden or secret or far away. . . At this very moment, Reality and completeness are in plain sight.” ~ Adyashanti
