Finding Beauty Lost…….Forever?

In the videos below I depict myself as a real Gandalf, a overseer of The Shire.

Historically, a sheriff was a legal official with responsibility for a shire, the term being a contraction of shire reeve” (Old English scīrgerefa). In British English, the political or legal office of a sheriff, term of office of a sheriff, or jurisdiction of a sheriff, is called a shrievalty[1] in England and Wales, and a sheriffdom[2] in Scotland.

Bennett Rosamond Grand Master of Orange Order

Above is a photograph of Bennett Rosamond the Grand Master of the Orange Order in Canada. Bennett is with members of Lodge 389 in Lanark, or, Almonte. The image on the banner is that of William of Orange who is carried in Orange Parades. That is Bennett on the far right, looking like Gandalf, or, a Levite Prophet.

According to the History of the Rosemond Family by Leland Rosemond, the Rosamond family were members of the Orange Order in Leitrim Ireland, and fled to Canada after a Rosamond son killed a Catholic lad who was invading the Rosamond home with a gang bent on doing my kindred harm.

Bennett may have been a Freemason as well – and an Oddfellow. There is a long history of the Rosamonds belonging to Guilds. They were members of the Swan Brethren.

My grandparents, Royal and Mary Magdalene Rosamond, begat my mother, Rosemary Rosamond, and her sisters, Lilian, Bonnie, and June Rice.

When Belle and I met at the Wandering Goat, for some reason she is lecturing on the importance of one’s genealogy. I am amazed! She will not let me get a word in edgewise so I can tell her I am doing an astounding genealogy of my family, that tragically my daughter, Heather, could care less about. This has put me in a real crisis, for who will I leave the thousands of hours of research to? When Belle called me back after we met in Ken Kesey Square, I told her I was going to make her my Heir to my long study. Why Belle Burch?

On March 24, 2014, I made the following videos about the Sleeping Dream, and the Floral Fairmont Vision of George Miller, the brother of the Bohemian Pre-Raphaelite Poet of Oakland, where I was born. I go on a mystical journey into the Eugene Hills, and there I arrive at the center of Labyrinth, the very end and clue of the Rouge Thread. I knew then, as I stood there, I would soon find her, Sleeping Beauty.  Here is one definition of FAIR:

fair adjective (BEAUTIFUL)

old use or literary (of a woman) beautiful: a fair maiden

Fair Rosamond means ‘Beautiful Rosamond’. Grimm names the Sleeping Beauty Princess, Rosamond. In this first video I am standing in front of Ken Kesey’s cottage that he lived in when he went to the University of Oregon.  I was trying to get some people to help me save these cottages so they could be used for Homeless Veterans. I shared this on Kitty Piercy’s Facebook. Two people stood me up at a meeting. When I went to the First Friday Artwalk on April 4th. I was hoping to meet a helper. No sooner was I in Ken Kesey Square, I spotted her. When she told me her name was Belle, I could hardly speak. I was – amazed! She said;

“It means ‘Beautiful’ in French.”

    On December 1, 2014 I posted ‘Finding Beauty’. This post records my quest for Fair Rosamond. Sleeping Beauty is given the name Rosmond by Grimms. My intention were pure when I met Belle in Ken Kesey Square.
