Here, There, Everywhere
A Clarification of Reality
by Just Plain Bill
Here, There, Everywhere is a book written by Bill Holtry a.k.a. Just Plain Bill. Just Plain Bill grew up in Central Pennsylvania on an Amish farm. His Pap mentored him throughout his life and taught Just Plain Bill the values that are passed down to us inside Here, There, and Everywhere. These values are family, love, honor, trust and peace. If you enjoy this review, make sure to check out my interview with Just Plain Bill in this issue of PaganPagesOrg. In the interview, Just Plain Bill shares his website where you can purchase Here, There, and Everywhere, and you can learn more about Just Plain Bill!
Here, There, and Everywhere is written in the form of automatic writing. Just Plain Bill touches on that subject within the first chapter or two. He also answers my questions about it in his interview. This is a neat way to write a book and I was impressed by all the lessons that he has learned over the years. It is a blessing that he took the time to compile all these lessons to share the values of family, love, honor, trust and peace with the readers of Here, There, and Everywhere.
This book is comprised of more than 50 chapters. Chapters isn’t the best way to describe it. Stories, lessons, values, lives. Those would be better ways to describe these “chapters”. Each chapter is teaching us something new. It is teaching us about someone who walked on this planet. It is about their life, their story, the lessons they learned, and the values that we should all know: family, love, honor, trust, and peace.
Each chapter/story starts the same way. Just Plain Bill steps through the “door” and into the Everywhere. From there each chapter/story is different. Sometimes the scene is two stumps in a forest, high in a tree, a stream, or a cliff. Other times there is no scene at all. Just Plain Bill is just relaying the message/story to us.
I spent time going over and over this book. Normally I can pick out a favorite part, a favorite scene, or a paragraph that I want to read over and over again. With Here, There, and Everywhere that was difficult to do. I loved this book so much.
I’ve read this book more than once and I am always learning something new or a new fact is jumping out at me. I’ve also been able to see the stories differently depending on how my mood is for that day.
One of the spirits that stick with me from the book is Pap. He only appears a few times throughout the book, but with each visit you can feel his love that he has for Just Plain Bill. Along with the love and admiration that Just Plain Bill has for Pap.
While reading this book, I could not help but wonder if I knew some of these Spirits in a past life. Was I in any of these stories that are being shared?
Here, There, and Everywhere is on my list as a must read. It’s more than just a fun read. Here, There and Everywhere challenges you to think and see the world differently. It also encourages you to use those values of family, love, honor, trust and peace.
