A legal alien in the states

Hi there
First of all I would like to share a thing with you. Someone wrote a blog recently and it made me extremely happy. The blogger had recently read my book and in the blog she tells how it made her think about life and death. That is a great compliment to get as a writer. So I thought I would share this with you.

 Second of all I have been thinking a lot lately. I have been looking for topics to share on this blog, because everybody says that it is important to have a blog, when you are a writer and it is even more important that it is different than all the other blogs out there.

So standing in the line in Walmart today it suddenly occured to me. I am different than all the other writers out there because I am a legal alien. I have only lived in the states for two years. As many of you know I am from Denmark and living here in Florida is very different than living in Denmark in some ways and in others it is not that different. But I really think this country is awesome. I love living here, and I thought I would write about that. How great it is to live here! And I thought that maybe there would be a nice sideeffect to it - maybe it would make you appreciate your country more, cause it is really nice over here. I mean some things are just weird, but you have a way of making everything very easy for yourself. Living is easy over here.

Take for example grocery-shopping. That is one of the first things you notice when you come here as a European. There are extremely many choices. The first couple of times I went to a Publix or Walmart I got almost paralyzed. I would stand for a very long time just staring at all the cereal boxes not knowing what to pick. The choices were just too many! But it is also really nice - once you have a figured a way through the jungle and tried a few brands and found those you like.
And it is so cheap. In Scandinavia and especially in Denmark we have taxes on everything. That makes our food extremely expensive. Latest they have figured out that they needed a tax on fat! Yes you heard me, in Denmark they have put extra taxes on food that contains fat to make them more expensive than healthier food. It is their plan to make people eat healthier that way. I have no idea if it will work or not, but I do not like the fact that we have a society where the government controls what I eat. Plus, we are planning on going home for christmas. I can only imagine how expensive it is going to be. If there is anything in the food you eat for Christmas, it is fat!
Anyway back to the nice big supermarkets in the states where you do not always bump into someone with your cart, because there is actually room to move on and you do not have to wait in line for twenty minutes when you want to pay for it. There is a lot of nice things to be said about your supermarkets, but one thing is really worth mentioning. The thing I enjoy the most. When you check out you do not have to pack your own bags!! That is amazing.You have no idea how stressful it can be to pack your own bags in a Danish supermarket. And if you are not fast enough the cashier will start letting other people's groceries come your way too on the moving belt, and then you have to hurry up and seperate them from each other and hope that your eggs or your bread will not get crushed. Because if they do, it is your own fault, since you have already paid for the groceries and you were just too slow.
And don't even get me started on the service there. It is horrible, but I will leave that for another blog. Anyway, that was just what I wanted to share with you today. Have a great day.

Guestpost by Sheila Deeth


Today I have the pleasure of introducing  author Sheila Deeth. She writes about the inspiration for her latest novel Flower Child.

About Flower Child: When Megan miscarries her first pregnancy it feels like the end of everything; instead it’s the start of a curious relationship between the grieving mother and an unborn child who hovers somewhere between ghost and angel. Angela, Megan’s “little angel,” has character and dreams all her own, friends who may or may not be real angels, and a little brother who brings hope to her mother’s world. But Angela’s dream-world has a secret and one day Angela might learn how to be real.
Where to find Flower Child: http://gypsyshadow.com/SheilaDeeth.html#Flower


Where does inspiration come from? A friend of mine says we create it ourselves by splitting ideas and looking for strange connections. Flower Child started with two words from a song—not surprisingly, children and flowers. Threaded between them was a memory of my mother telling me babies grow from seeds; my imagination furnished heavenly flower-filled fields with guardian angels. But that was just the beginning of the tale.
I wrote what I remembered and a character called Megan popped up in my subconscious. Okay Megan, so why are you thinking about babies growing in fields now you’re all grown up? “Because I think it’s true.”
And now I had two ideas again. Why would a mother think children grow in heavenly fields, and what would it be like to be such a child. The connection was quickly furnished by Megan; the babe in question was lost to miscarriage—which reminded me of my own miscarriage and got me talking to Megan in my head again. “But talk to Angela,” says she.
“Who’s Angela?”
Megan’s unborn daughter was quite determined to tell me lots about herself but already I was stuck between two ideas again. Is an unborn child an angel guarding other baby-seeds, or is she a ghost? While I tried to connect those two dots I remembered reading that angels don’t have free will. So how do they fall? Free will and growing up (Angela was growing fast in my imagination) led to thoughts of love. Who does Angela love? And can angels love?
Megan and Angela filled my head with ideas, telling their stories, answering my questions, and gradually leading me up that garden path to the end of their tale. I kind of liked what Megan thought she’d learned when the story was done so I wrote it down, but you’ll have to read the ebook to find out.
Thank you for making me so welcome on your blog Therese. I loved reading the about where you found inspiration for your novel, The Eye of the Crystal Ball—especially where you mentioned flying, as I used to imagine I could fly as a child. I even imagined I had done and touched the ceiling somewhere over the stairs.

 

About the author: Sheila Deeth grew up in the UK and has a Bachelors and Masters in mathematics from Cambridge University, England. Now living in the States with her husband and sons, she enjoys reading, writing, drawing, telling stories, running a local writers' group, and meeting her neighbors’ dogs on the green.
