Unfortunately, I do not know too much about Maude Mixon. I do know that she lived in Charleston, South Carolina. Sometime in the 1970’s she met Rev. Carl R. Hewitt, and they became friends.
Maude developed the gift of Automatic Writing, and wrote these poems. Fortunately, they are dated and were written in 1983-1984. Maude would send a copy of these poems to Carl, who kept them in the church files.
Recently, as I was reorganizing the Church files, I came across these poems and decided to publish them on the internet.
The gift of automatic writing occurs when Spirit manipulates the medium’s hand to produce writing. The medium simply holds a pen and Spirit moves the medium’s hand to write a message. Automatic writing can also be done on a typewriter.
Although I met Maude in 1984, I do not know if she hand wrote these poems or if they were typed on a typewriter.
The eleventh poem entitled: "Teacher from the North" is about Rev. Carl R. Hewitt.
I hope you will enjoy these poems.
Rev. Sidney Schwartz
