Never were such dramatic words spoken in the Emerald Valley. Belle – is caught. I captured her. Or, did I?
“How do you sleep……?”
This is one of the posts Alley Valkyrie wanted removed, or she would send her witches and warlocks after me. I knew I was in a Living Art show, and refused to destroy a work of art. Alley and Belle are artists and know about Living Art. They understood I had captured their show. They mocked the title of my biography about my famous sister ‘Rosamond’
An anonymous person was poised to donate $200,000 dollars to a Homeless camp. If that person googled Alley and Belle, they would have found MY beautiful work of art and story. They would have given the money to me………….and Belle! The Artist and his Muse! Instead, they got the money. Amy Semple was on the board of Nightingale.
Never in the history of Art and Theatre, has there been such vile destruction. Belle’s mother and father used to perform a Labyrinth Walk in Eugene. Katherine Van Der Turin was a playwrite and actress. My kindred, King Henry, put Rosamond in a Labyrinth. I will throw my glove down before the City of Eugene and accuse council person, Emily Semple, of Conspiracy to deprive me of my Civil Rights, my Freedom of the Press and Expression. I will break the evil spell these Wiccan Anarchists cast upon the City of Eugene.
Emily Semple is a political activist, and a member of SLEEPS, who has been put herself on the line for Constitutional Rights to free speech and assembly many times. A self-employed graphic designer at Semple Design with an AAS from Lane Community College, she brings a dramatic flair to all her activities, serves as a Eugene Slug Queen, and works as a pastry chef at Ambrosia, a Eugene restaurant.”
Belle Burch conspired with other members of SLEEPS to steal MY story, our story! Member of SLEEPS slandered me. According to the FBI agent I talked to, their “threats” can be seen as RACKETEERING if money was involved. Because Kim Hafner invokes the names of my tormenters, and because Belle Burch became a facebook friend of Lara Roozemond, I suspect the HIJACKING of my story………..continues! I suspect Alleybelle the Wiccan of Sleep have compromised my muse, Lara Roozemond. Did they threaten her? How about, Yulia Rose?
SLEEPS broke away from OCCUPY that kept track of ALL the monies given to them. Did SLEEPS do the same? Did they have non-profit status? As an artist, and writer I have the right, and duty, to EXTRACT what is redeemable and beautiful about this news I published in my newspaper, Royal Rosamond Press, name after my grandfather.
Since I met Belle in 2014, I have proven Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor is my cousin, is in my Rose Family Tree. She is……….Sleeping Beauty! Here is Belle giving me her phone number and e-mail. I own this piece of paper. She……..they………stalked me! Belle is the Bete!
This is………..The Greatest Story Ever Told! Victor Hugo rolls over in his grave with envy. The Bete knows by book is not complete, and, if I die, it is up for grabs. This is why they contacted Kim Hafner………Le Saboteur………who sicked her mob on me! Consider ‘The Hunchback of Norte Dame!
The Brothers Grimm included a variant Little Briar Rose in their collection (1812). Their version ends when the prince arrives to wake Sleeping Beauty, unlike the stories of Basile and Perrault. Some translations of the Grimms’ tale give the princess the name “Rosamond”. The brothers considered rejecting the story on the grounds that it was derived from Perrault’s version, but the presence of the Brynhild tale convinced them to include it as an authentically German tale. Still, it is the only known German variant of the tale, and Perrault’s influence is almost certain.
Originally and often still specifically, a racket was a criminal act in which the perpetrator or perpetrators offer a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a nonexistent problem, a service that will not be put into effect, or a service that would not exist without the racket. Conducting a racket is racketeering. Particularly, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, but that fact may be concealed, with the specific intent to engender continual patronage for this party.
I met Belle Burch on the First Friday Art Walk April 4, 2014. Belle approached me when she saw I was filming her. I told her she looked like Botticelli’s Venus on a Half-shell. She felt flattered and blushed. I have compared the relationship of Botticelli and Simonetta Vespuccito, that of Sleeping Beauty. At the end of my video I tell Belle my blog has the legend of Sleeping Beauty at its core, and the family name, Rosamond, is key because that is the name Grimm gave the sleeping princess.
On this day, I declare Belle Burch, and SLEEPS, my living work of art. Because the transient homeless competes with the Bohemian Arts Scene in the downtown of many America cities, I decided to make these transients, their tents, their cause, a Work of Art. They are a living Mobile.
If Belle had accepted my proposal of marriage, then her surname would be ROSAMOND. This name can be adopted by a man who marries a woman name ROSE. Victor William Presco married Rosemary Rosamond. There is a ROSE in Presco and AMBROSE. Belle Rosamonde is the French name for Fair Rosamond, whom Belle will be my model for. She was put in a Labyrinth. Belles father operated a Labyrinth Walk.
Belle Burch and her lover, Ambrose Holtham-Keathly have been arrested while fighting for the RIGHT TO SLEEP. This is the Sleeping Kingdom of Rosamond that fell asleep when Rosamond’s finger was pricked by a piece of flax. My Rosamond kindred descend from a long line of weavers. Weavers have led many revolts in history that led to the formation of this Democracy.
My right to create any work of art, is protected by the United States Constitution. I have always seen Belle as a living work of art, and my muse, a role she did not object to. Only when I saw she was connected with SLEEPS, did she withdraw, and, bid Alley Valkyrie to attack me, these Sleeping Women claiming I was stalking them.
I have compared myself to the Knight who hacks his way thru the thorns and roses to get to Sleeping Beauty so I can awaken her with a kiss. At the Wandering Goat, I reached across the table, took Belle’s hand, and kissed it. This was the hand that imitated the painting by Waterhouse. Hence, Belle has never been more awake. She fights me because she is going to get everything she ever DREAMED of, because we have reached the point of no return, the masterpiece of the Artist and Muse is unfolding like a blooming rose.
Belle’s mother, Catherine Vanderturin, was involved in making masks for theatre. I am the Phantom of the Opera. I am the author of this play, this drama, this living work of art.
When I read my poem about Belle at the Wandering Goat, she leaned forward, closed her eyes, and smiled. Was Belle dreaming of her prince, that is yet to come and awaken her? How about Floris Van Rosemondt? Belle and her mother look like Rutger Hauer. Belle has his eyes. Gottstalk Rosemondt, was my illustrious ancestor, a member of the Swan Brethren, and the Falcon Art College in Holland.
Capturing Beauty will now be a serial published in my newspaper, Rosamond Press Co.
Knight Floris van Roozemond (spelling varies with o/oo, s/z and d/dt), accompanied by the Indian Sindala (Bergman), returns home from a trip around the world only to find his castle occupied by Maarten van Rossum, the commander in chief of Charles, Duke of Guelders. Charles, who controls Guelders, is involved in a power struggle against Philip the Handsome who rules the Burgundian Netherlands, the rest of the Low Countries. Floris had so far been neutral due to his absence, but after he finds his castle stolen, he sides with Wolter van Oldesteijn, who is allied with Burgundy against Charles, Duke of Guelders. Charles and Maarten van Rossum are aided by the Frisian pirate Greate Pier partly as an ally, and partly to do the dirty work.
Apart from Sindala and Floris, all the characters are based on historical figures. Another divergence from history is the presence of the pirate Greate Pier: although a contemporary, he was not active as a pirate before the death of Philip the Handsome. In the series Pier is either guarded or surrounded by members of the Arumer Zwarte Hoop (called “Gelderse Friezen” in the series).
When I was a gifted youth
I do not recall if I studied the artist Sandro Botticelli.
When a man
I wrote my version of ‘The Birth of Venus’
and did a painting of my muse
coming out of the sea.
I must have neglected this great Renaissance Artist,
and his beloved Muse – until now!
But, Since I beheld her, my Belle
and compared her to Simonetta Cattaneo de Candia Vespucci,
do I now behold all the clues of the petals
and the thread
that have brought me through the labyrinth of time,
to adore her once again.
And she recognizes me!
Centuries ago I was buried at her feet
in order to continue my long vigilance,
for she was only asleep.
One day she will awaken, and the City of Flowers
will again bask in her unparelled beauty.
Bella! Mon Belle!
Following the Renaissance of the Miller Brothers
to the top of the hill in the lost city of Fairmount,
I came to the crossroads of time.
When I saw the intersection of Flora and Fairmount,
I knew it would be a matter of days
before I was with my Sleeping Belle, once again,
once upon a time
She is the one I came here for.
After finding the lost tombstone of George Melvin Miller,
the founder of Florence,
I began to see the grand design.
When she came across the piazza de Keasy
while the minstrel sang a song by the Grateful Dead
I had my rose at ready.
When I handed it to her
I heard the lovers complain
Where is my Belle Rose!
This is the Renaissance Rose
that my ancestor employed to write his name,
When I told Belle what kind of work I do,
I described my painting of a woman coming out of the sea.
Many have asked me who she is. Now, I can say;
“She is Belle, the most beautiful woman in Florence.”
We will go there, soon,
to behold the sea, a shell, and the foam
at La Giostra
a jousting tournament was held at the Piazza Santa Croce.
The gallant knight, Giuliano
entered the field bearing a banner
on which was a picture of Simonetta as a helmeted Pallas Athene
Her image was painted by Botticelli himself.
Underneath was the French inscription
La Sans Pareille, meaning “The unparalleled one”.
From then on Simonetta became known
as the most beautiful woman in Florence,
the most beautiful woman of the Renaissance.
I salute thee!

How to Help
NHS will establish a self-governed, village-style, accessible community that will focus on health and wellness. Our goal is to provide a safe place for people who are unsheltered, and to be both accessible and inclusive. In community, residents will support and assist each other to the best of their abilities, with the support of the larger community.
When the project is complete there will be 30 units for residents, an on-site health clinic two days a week, an overnight guest program hosting the neighborhood’s unhoused providing a supervised group sleeping area and breakfast as well as a resource connection time in the morning. Activities to support health and wellness will be offered. In partnership with the neighborhood, NHS seeks to create a Neighborhood Rapid Response Team, which will assist with issues arising from homelessness in the neighborhood.
Once a sanctuary is established NHS intends to offer the larger unhoused community:
- a health clinic operating at least twice a week;
- a guest program offering people in the neighborhood who are unhoused a safe place to sleep; and
- a resource and information center assisting people to connect with community resources.
Additionally, NHS intends to offer classes and activities to support health and wellness such as:
- cooking and nutrition classes;
- peer-to-peer mediation;
- peer-to-peer coaching;
- communication training;
- music and art activities; and
- self-care skills training designed to enhance overall health and allow for the management of pain and stress.
