In Memory of Allan Lowe / Demian Moonbloode

Artemisia phoned me yesterday morning to let me know that Allan had passed over, because, she said, I was one of the rather few people he considered a friend and had asked her to call.

In it he said that he had seen the… Read more

The Ocean Level and World Temperature Have Been Rising for 20,000 Years.

All our major coastal cities will eventually be flooded. New York’s subways flooded not only because of Sandy, but because the ocean level is a foot higher than when the subways were built.

Quickly” “Why?” “I just came from Brendan’s, heard from Alan about the breakin at his office. If… Read more

XIV. Awakening [From The Gospel According to Mary, as translated by C.T. Edwards, A. Healy, L. Moresco, and S.
