1977 “New Direction” – Met Dr. Dick Mazurek thru Doug Riseborough in the Kootenays after traveling from Japan. Before traveling to Japan Doug Riseborogh had us for dinner in his amazing log house overlooking the lake and said he wanted to find someone to publish Dodoland. He introduced us when we got back from Japan to Dr. Dick Mazurek. When we met at a trailer in the Kootenay he said: “I am Dr. Dick Mazurek, I want to publish your book. I want you to come to Los Angles to do it.”
Dale and I went to Los Angles for three months to help in the publication and I maintained creative control. It was a dream comes true. Dick said it was for the children of the world. He said there was no limit on the money to produce – it had to be just as I dreamed. It became a big book when big books did not exist. It had eight colors and 60 pages. Knew it was for growth and transformation of myself, others, and the world.
After the book was published did workshops at Dewson, and Blake Schools with the Inner City Angels. Also got a grant from the Ontario Arts Council to take it back to Niagara on the Lake School where I had told the story before publication. Children wore costumes of “becoming what they wanted to be.”

“Met a small boy in a dream who showed me a book on a pier” – later felt this was the Doctor Mazurek who published Dodoland. Later he took me to a pier at his home in Laguna Beach at Table Rock and showed me the pier in front of the condo and it felt like the pier in the dream.
In 1977 had a dream of “Ring of rainbow light on my finger”. Woke up and wrote the first draft of “Magical Earth Secrets” story.
Before publication of Dodoland had a dream of caterpillar tunnel and open space where people were flying butterflies… stopped the press to add these details to book. Yes, as humans we can fly like birds.
Felt “Everything is spirit. Everything is a gift!”
“Journey to Dodoland “ was published including the Nature Retreat of “Giant Flower Islands” with Dale Bertrand’s macro-photos of flowers. Extravagant book printed with 8 colors and 60 pages. It won the P.I.A. Printers Institute of America Award as one of the best books in 1978.
Finding new friends. Knowing dreams are there for us to get wisdom from and grow.
