              The story of JACK describes the Celtic personality and gives comfort to people from a matriarchal tradition as they live within a patriarchal-style culture that has come to dominate and conquer the earth in the recent few millennia. The rogue troublemaker, seemingly without disci...pline or law has a tough, windy, winding road in a male-dominated society. JACK is forever getting into trouble, but is a good-hearted and gentle soul, and more often than not- truly saves the day. JACK has become the archetype for the everyperson hero in the stories of American film and literature, and is evident in the Celtic traditions of European, British, and American peoples. The Story of JACK comes from a harsher time, when consequences were severe for children out at night. Hungry animals hunting in the central square, starving handicapped people, diseased people, and all manner of the disenfranchised and uncared-for individuals threatened a small town lacking the resources to help those in need: all this presented a clear and present danger to any children out after dark. All holiday traditions are adaptations of this theme, caring for the needy and less fortunate; gifts under a lighted tree in the woods near town; children posing as beggars asking for candy; these are the oasis of charity for at least one night of the year. Modern society produces a wealth of supplies and systems and technologies to this very purpose. In these harsher times of long ago, where resourses were horded and few, JACK was styled as a cautionary tale for parents to tell to children to keep them out of trouble. It is literally tyranny- an attempt to use fear to manipulate behavior. To keep the kids from going out at night, they were told that the nightwatchman's lantern they saw was a heinous apparition- a headless fright! I've presented my version as an historical origins story, the origin of Halloween. As modern methods of childrearing, education, and even our entire American governmental system are based

              Do you know every nook and cranny of your neighborhood? How about UNDER your neighborhood? Do you let your kids walk home from school? It's just a few blocks, right? What lurks in the shadows? In the bushes? Or scarier yet, under the bushes? Or is it all just happy-go-lucky Huckl...eberry Finn and exploring and adventuring in your own neighborhood? When do you know the difference? Maybe your kids know. Maybe they don't. How will you learn? It began as a simple walk home, the same one we did every day after school. But our dog's ball went into something of a hole, or was it a cave? Maybe a tunnel. But are there tunnels in the city? The ball was pretty close to the entrance, but just far enough to be a little spooky. Should we just forget it? WARNING TO PARENTS: there are some questionable parenting decisions in this book. It is not intended as a parenting handbook. There's a fine line between making the right decision and making the fun decision. When to choose which? How much do you involve your children in daily decisions? What if they involve danger? But what if your kids think it might be fun? You get the idea. Maybe I need a disclaimer ...;-) You know in scary movies when you yell, Don't go in there! We went in. Yeah, I know. Ask your 8-year old why.
