Thursday – We Cannot Live Alone ABSI and More !!!

Isn’t this a great shot of Pope Francis ! He is making headlines across the board on many topics this week. It is good to see a holy man who resides “among” the people and not above or without them. The he lives humbly, wants to drive his own car and thinks openly about subjects that have been taboo for ages.

I hope for this man and his pontificate. His words, we can speculate, have shaken many across the board. This pontificate has begun to shake up the base and is giving hope to the masses. And he is only a few months in…

Faith is a recurrent theme here. I am never far from my faith. The one thing that is missing from my foundation of Christian life is participation in a home faith community on a more regular basis. One parish I would like to attend is too far for a Sunday transit across town, especially in the winter when it is (-20c) outside and the walk from the stop to the church is quite long. The parish I do attend on a semi regular basis on Sunday morning is not far, but an early call for regular Sunday attendance. But that may change now that my mentor is now a newly ordained priest serving the Christ Church Cathedral. I would make more an effort to hear him preach regularly.

It has been a blustery couple of days. Clouds streaming across the sky from dawn to dusk, and wispy rain fell on the way home tonight. The weather is turning again with single digits coming over night for the next few days. It has been miserably hot and humid the past day or so. It is just like Summer is still hanging on for a last breath.

I made the transit on time this evening. Making stops on the way. The mall is coming along nicely. The ceiling on the mezzanine level outside Pharmaprix is close to completion. The runners are in and the duct work is almost done, which means the drop ceiling will go in soon. However the new retail spaces are not yet open.

There are a number of spaces on two floors that are still under construction. However the new Santè shop on the ground floor is now open, along side Laura Secord and the candy shop. I imagine that the push for the late fall opening of the main space is on in earnest.

I set up – with less tables – thinking that the crowd had thinned out – outside the group members, two guests came tonight. I have made requests at inter-group to make sure we were listed in all the social media areas we use for press.

I read through As Bill Sees It earlier in the day, because I thought it would be easy to find something for tonight. A long intensive read with few guests seems like we are just talking amongst ourselves on a weekly basis. So keeping it simple is my train of thought.

The topic of We Cannot Live Alone – speaks directly of Step 5, the desire for ego deflation and how, in the end it is up to us what we do with what is in our heads and what makes it on to the 4th and what we do for our 5th.

It is a common story among many of us who have worked our steps in a 17 week step series that a normal group of folks enter the circle sometimes a dozen or more people come to do the deed. We read through steps 1 – 4 and by that time, every member of the series must have a sponsor. And we begin writing and moving into 5.

Ultimately – this is where the men separate from the boys. Because as usual, there are a handful of folks who just cannot bring themselves to see through this part of the journey.

Most of them quit outright, but a good number of them go back out and drink.

When I read through this passage the thought that ran through my head was that Once we come in – We are no longer alone. The people we were prior – over time – however hard you kick or scream – eventually accepts where we are now.

And it has been my experience that, at least, this time around, I am trying to do it right. Because if I held on to old ideas I had the last time, I would not or possibly would have gone back out. Because it was my best thinking that led to my slip. Thinking that I decided on my own, to keep to myself, to my own detriment.

My sponsor once gave me a fridge magnet that says ” I always do the right thing, after I’ve tried everything else.”

I have enlisted a handful of men and women who are my anchors in sobriety. Any thought I need counsel on “anything” I put out there. You could say that I allow some to do the thinking for me. And I just follow along …

Because sometimes I don’t have the answers I need and I must find them in other people. And that has proved to be very beneficial. Over the past almost twelve years, I’ve never had to go outside the circle for anything.

And after the discussions I overheard and was part of last week, with regarding our men and their sorrows and assorted issues, I wanted to present a united front for our men, because I care for them more than they know. And i worry for some – because aging is changing the routines of some and that isn’t a good sign.

I’ve heard it said by a good man in my life that “this is your ministry, so better do the right thing!”

Tomorrow is another day. And the end of the week. hopefully it will be a big show tomorrow night.

On a totally different plane … Art Bell is coming back to a satellite radio near you on September 16th, on Sirius XM Radio. Art Bell is the man who launched the very popular late night radio show Coast to Coast AM. Which runs nightly from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. eastern standard time.

In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Art moved from Nevada, overseas with his new wife and his now 6 year old daughter. Premier Radio piped up and brought him on board with a line into mainland radio so that he could broadcast from the Philippines for a while. But like all electronics go, issues would arise on the night of transmission and Art would go dark. Soon after Art left the airwaves and handed off Coast to Coast to George Noory and his brood of national headliner hosts.

Rumor picked up and it was announced, some time ago that Art was returning to the airwaves. You can find him “HERE – ART BELL.COM.” 

Curious that he chose 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on satellite radio to make his comeback.

He will not be directly competing with Coast to Coast. I read an interview from George Knapp this evening from Nevada about the return. It is intimated that there is bad blood between Art and Premier, I did not go looking for proof, but the fact that he has chosen NOT to  compete directly, speaks volumes.

His chosen hours of talk, will be, to me, a great lead in to Coast to Coast.

if you choose to bounce between satellite and terrestrial radio over hours at a time. Sirius is offering 10 days free when you apply through Art’s website, and a nominal fee to recur your membership once the ten days are up.

The problem for us is this … We are still in tv mode at 10 p.m. and we don’t go to bed until 1 a.m. Which means, in any case, if we loaded up on Sirius, it would be through a dedicated line from the laptop to the speakers in the bedroom. Because we don’t own a physical satellite radio. And because the show airs outside our listening time, it is not something we will invest in. If only to sign up for 10 free days at the start of the new show.

Coast to Coast tweeted the article by Knapp, which speaks volumes. Millions of people are on that twitter feed and there is no counting what this tweet will lead to for folks who love Art. He has a base of listeners who will probably flock to satellite to listen prior to the nightly Coast to Coast broadcast.

So that’s the kind of day it’s been.

More to come, stay tuned …

Ode to Armageddon …


Sinai photographed from STS 109 – Shuttle Columbia March 1,2002 …

I’d imagine that if Armageddon was going to take place, this is the place we would imagine the first strike to take place, or the first event. It is 3:10 a.m. on Friday morning. Nothing happened, or should I say, nothing has happened

YET !!!

If you are a listener of Late Night Radio, ala Coast to Coast for any length of time you would know that all the crazies in the world listen to this show night after night. And we have been all through the list of crazies over the last year.

We have the ads for end of days Armageddon style food sales, you know, just for those moments when a disaster takes place and you need those ready to eat meals, They aren’t just for earthquakes and hurricanes Yall !!! If you have a spare couple of hundred dollars that you can plunk down for mass storage food stuffs, and you gotta have a place to put it all, and who has a spare bomb shelter in their property portfolio ???

I hear in UTAH that there are bunkers that have been prepared for today’s calamity to take place. I have also heard that the cleansing of the righteous from the non-righteous will take place today. That God is going to cleanse the earth of the sinful and errant peoples. That only the righteous will be saved from God’s judgment.

There is a town in Southern France that is supposed to be a vortex location and that when the earth meets its end, that the aliens are going to appear there and take away all those who fled to the safety of this mountain perch.

All over the tv tonight have been every kind of end of days programming. People trying to divine what the Mayans were trying to say and what that damned calendar and glyphs really have to say, since they are woefully incomplete, and the end story is all up to conjecture.

We’ve heard over the last year all those good preacher men who have foretold of the coming Apocalypse and twice they were wrong and God did not come screaming out of his heaven to take us all to heaven and send all the sinners to hell.

That would mean all of us LGBTQ folks. Because homosexuality is all so sinful and errant of God’s ways … Oh, I kid …

Did you partake in the hysteria of the end of days? Did you buy into the end of the world? Are you hoarding food, guns, ammunition and all kinds of food stuffs? Because you know, when the end comes later today it is going to be utter anarchy in the streets. People clawing and fighting for food and guns.

And those who are prepared for the end will be hunkered down in their bunkers and nuclear safe type hovels defending themselves from the marauding hordes of people who did not listen to the council of the folks who have spent the better part of the last year telling us all this it is coming and you’d better be prepared.

All this talk of financial ruin coming to the U.S. The wars over seas and the Arab spring running into Arab Winter. You never know if the Anti-Christ is going to rise from the desert sand of the Middle East somewhere like Iran or some other backwater Middle Eastern country. Because like I said above, if Armageddon was going to take place, you’d probably be looking over there for him.

I have read that the sun isn’t going to erupt in some hellish solar flare that is going to knock out the electrical and communications grids all over the world. And at this hour, I haven’t read of any earthquakes, tsunamis or volcanic eruptions taking place anywhere in the world.

And when you wake and come upon this entry – having said your prayers to whatever God you pray to the night before, you will rise and the sunrise will be glorious – just like the day before.

And I am sure on Friday night on Coast to Coast they will be hosting a night of checking in with all those folks who have added to the mass hysteria that today is supposed to unleash on humankind.

Did the ancients get it right? Will we come to rise above ourselves and grow in spiritual awakening? Will we rise to the next level of humanity overnight? And what have we learn in this exercise of preparing ourselves for the end of the world. And what will we say to all those folks who are hiding in their bomb shelters as I write this.

Will we see a nuclear Armageddon from the East? Because if we do, for those of us who could not afford a bomb shelter – we are all goners … So I guess before I go to bed I should say my final prayers – kiss my ass goodbye and hope to wake up tomorrow morning.

Today my husband is traveling to Ottawa to see his family, and it may be his last meeting with them if we are to believe that something BIG will take place tomorrow some time. Who knows.

It’s the end of the world as we know it. And when you wake tomorrow – what kind of world will it be? And what will we say to all those crazies out there sitting in their bomb shelters and on mountain tops and those fleeing the big cities into the interior of the United States and Europe because the oceans are going to swell and swallow up all the coastal land. God forbid you know that volcano on the Canary Islands that is supposed to blow its peak and send a tsunami across the Atlantic and submerge the entire East Coast of the United States.

You are all FUCKED !!!

Shall we make a prediction of what all will happen the day after tomorrow?

Sit tight. I will report more as the day progresses.

More to come, stay tuned …

The Earth is Angry …

I can’t help but be reminded that on Friday February 25th, John B. Wells had a guest named Lindsey Williams on Coast to Coast. And they were talking about world changes and on that show he gave us a date [ March 11th ] on air. He said that we should pay attention to that date.

I wonder if a natural disaster was what he was foretelling us, or if some earth shattering event in the middle east would take place, the 11th being a Friday and as we know Friday Prayers usually led to something bigger.

I was sitting here getting ready to go to bed on Thursday night going into Friday morning and George was on the radio and he mentioned that something big was going down in Asia.

A massive 8.9/9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Pacific Ocean nearby Northeastern Japan at around 2:46pm on March 11 (JST) causing damage with blackouts, fire and tsunami.

So I powered up the computer and turned on the TV and sat shocked at what I was seeing.

Just a little Background on Lindsey:

Lindsey Williams, who has been an ordained Baptist minister for 28 years, went to Alaska in 1971 as a missionary. The Transalaska oil pipeline began its construction phase in 1974, and because of Mr. Williams’ love for his country and concern for the spiritual welfare of the “pipeliners,” he volunteered to serve as Chaplain on the pipeline, with the subsequent full support of the Alyeska Pipeline Company. Because of the executive status accorded to him as Chaplain, he was given access to information documented in his eye opening book, The Energy Non-Crisis.

After numerous public speaking engagements in the western states, certain government officials and concerned individuals urged Mr. Williams to put into print what he saw and heard, stating that they felt this information was vital to national security. Mr. Williams firmly believes that whoever controls energy controls the economy. Thus, The Energy Non-Crisis.

Along with the contacts that this man had over the past 35 years, he shared some information to the show that things are going to happen and that maybe we need to pay attention to what he was saying. I had written down the date that he shared on air and it was tacked to my bulletin board.

It was prophetic – There are no two ways about it.

A 9.0 earthquake, the ensuing tsunami, the destruction of millions of homes, businesses, and lively hoods, and now the fear that nuclear reactors are melting down and that if that happens, a nuclear emergency is going to occur.

I was Tumbling earlier tonight and I saw a posted image of a radiation cloud and just how long it would take for radiation to reach the West coast of the United States. [ 3 days ]

The earth has shifted on its axis I have heard the measurement of 4 inches. The earth has shifted Japan meters from where it was to where it now sits on the earth. That is a lot of earth movement for one cataclysmic event.

Washington, March 12 (IANS) The massive earthquake that shook Japan and triggered a huge tsunami appears to have shifted the Earth on its axis and moved an island of Japan, a media report said Saturday.Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey, told CNN: ‘At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass.’

Reports from an Italian institute estimated that Japan earthquake shifted Earth on its axis by as much as 4 inches, CNN said.

The earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Richter scale rocked Japan Friday and spawned a tsunami that slammed into the northeastern coast, leaving about 1,000 people dead.

Shengzao Chen, a geophysicist, explained that the quake occurred as the Earth’s crust ruptured along an area about 400 km long by 160 km wide, as tectonic plates slipped more than 18 metres.

The Japan quake follows the Feb 22 earthquake in New Zealand that killed 150 people.

We saw in Indonesia a few years ago, the major upswell that occurred and the movement of the earth after that massive earthquake and tsunami.

I believe the earth is angry. And I fear that this is not the end. But just the beginning.

I have studied earth sciences – earthquakes and volcano’s in University. The earth plates are constantly moving. And where one plate moves, the others in the area are going to move in kind. The ring of fire is active once again. And one can imagine that one side of the ring can be active and the other side not be affected.

I don’t know if the earth is finished moving where it wants to go.

We’ve heard that May 21 is Judgment day. People are saying that we should be paying attention to the calendar. Billboards are going up all over the U.S. George mentioned this the other night that he tried to book a guest for the 23rd of May (if) after the impending rapture doesn’t occur and the guest declined the invitation. BUT their group sent George a letter asking for money donations to their group, even though they say the world is going to come to an end on May 21st.

The earth is angry. And we are paying the price.

It seems – over the last 10 years that once again the earth has been tossed into recovery mode after a tragic natural disaster. It seems a pattern is emerging.

Indonesia/Sumatra – Haiti – Chile – Turkey – Greece – Tokyo

The earth has moved a great deal over the last 4 years. I don’t have the specific scientific calculations, but from memory, all these places have seen a great deal of calamity.

They say that the West coast is just itching for a major event. The plates on the east side of the Pacific aren’t moving like the plates in the Western Pacific. But energy that is thrust on one side of the earth has got to go somewhere. We just don’t know what is coming next.

Are you paying attention to the signs and the omens?

We pray for all those affected in Tokyo and the surrounding cites North and South. We pray for those who have died and for those who have not yet been found. And we pray for those who have lived and for those who must clean it all up.

The crazies are all out saying the end of days is nigh …

Who’s prophecies should we be listening to next?

Time to take stock. You never know what’s next. The earth is shaking, I wonder if the world is now paying attention? And how do we stop it?

or can we …

CJAD comes on board with Coast to Coast

News comes from Astral Media and CJAD here in Montreal that they are picking up Coast to Coast AM late night radio show as of March 1st. We applaud CJAD for making this gutsy move to fill the void of late night radio by becoming the new Montreal affiliate for the show.

Coast to Coast is a worldwide phenomena with hosts like Art Bell, George Noory, Ian Punnett and George Knapp. From all corners of the world Premier Radio brings forth the BEST overnight radio show in the world.

CINW 940 hits Montreal was the former affiliate and as a late night provider they just could not perform the job of hosting an overnight radio show. There were countless nights where dead air would play for hours on end, and the fact that they missed many shows going live and replaying old shows over and over became a nightmare.

When CINW went off the air we lost the only Montreal affiliate to carry the show forcing listeners to go online to pick up a local signal because the closest station was 1180 in Buffalo, a very weak signal at best.

So we’ve been piping in AM 640 in Toronto for the last few weeks stringing speakers into the bedroom to listen to the radio. What a joy it will be to have late night radio back in Montreal once again.

You may not agree with all that you hear on the show, but the hosts are great men, they get on well with listeners and they have the best overnight late night radio show in the world.

Art comes to us from Manila Phillipines, George comes via Los Angeles and St. Louis Missouri, Ian Punnett comes to us via the North Coast Minneasota, and George Knapp comes to us via Las Vegas Nevada. Coast to Coast is a great show overall. We applaud CJAD in their next endeavor with late night radio, may it be a successful run.

From Astral Media:CJAD 800 …

Montreal’s News/Talk Leader CJAD 800 proudly announces the addition of Coast to Coast AM to its line-up!

Coast to Coast AM is the most popular overnight program in North America and is broadcast by more than 500 radio stations.

The program has a huge following and explores a wide range of topics, from UFO’s to breaking news stories.

Host George Noory is known for his interviewing skills and his ability to communicate with listeners. Click here for more information on Coast to Coast AM.

The show launches Monday, March 1st, at 12:00am.

Weather Undecided …

I really should be getting to bed at this hour… But I’m not. It has been a quiet weekend. I seem to be getting a lot of traffic from alcoholics – or – those people who call themselves alcoholics and are averse to AA. I am not going to entertain them, that would be like entertaining an Evangelical Christian and you know where that leads … *TO HELL*

Whatever works people. Some come, Some go, Some stay – and SOME even get sober, in spite of themselves… I don’t push the program on anyone, I am who I am take it or leave it. I have my journey, and like I tell people, it’s my journey not yours. You don’t have to follow me – make your own journey.

The weather has been all over the place this weekend. It snows, it stops, the clouds disperse, a little while later, it snows again, and it stops. Now the clouds have gone again. Although we did get a nice dusting we haven’t had significant snowfall in a while.

The first assignments for this term are due this week. Needless to say I am really self conscious about what I am turning in seeing that I am doing double the work this term. I am rereading “What is Gnosticism” again to rewrite that god damned book review paper. I HATE GNOSTICISM…


The other day Montreal was informed on the news that two radio stations were going off the air, one of those stations, AM 940 was our overnight feeder of Coast to Coast AM. So we scrambled through all the stations that our radio could possibly pull in on its own, and that was a disaster. We can pull in a station out of Rochester NY, but it isn’t clear enough to sit and listen to. I did it for one night and said NO. Then I went to the mall and scoured the electronics departments trying to find an AM booster antenna. Let me tell you that the sales people that I spoke to thought I was crazy, “AM radio, who listens to AM radio???” We could get one from C Crane, but it runs $70.00 …

Hubby went on his own foray and came home with a 20 foot extension cord for the speakers to the computer so now we are streaming radio right from the internet. I don’t like this set up because once he goes to bed, the computer is locked on a station and if he doesn’t get his way he can get quite pissy…

I hope that one day Coast to Coast finds a new affiliate here and we can once again move back to the radio. But shit in one hand and wish in the other and see which one fills faster…

Oh well, I guess I am gonna go…

More to come, stay tuned…

On the Radio…

Last night on Coast to Coast AM late night radio with Ian Punnett he had a most interesting guest on with him. I sat in bed last night listening to Jesus Christ being interviewed. I found the interview to be insightful. At times I listened to this man supposedly [Jesus Christ] speak, and I found his use of certain vernacular to be suspect. My conception of Jesus is based on my studies and my faith, he was very good at quoting scripture and talking about his apostles and Mary Magdalene, and he spoke about sin.

I did not expect Jesus to sit and say “you see there are 14 year old boys feeling up young girls” at one point during the discussion. Somehow, I could not imagine Jesus using the phrase “feeling up” I guess that if Jesus has evolved through the last 2000 years, that he would pick up on local vernacular.

I seriously doubted that this man could be Jesus Christ when at 4:20 in the morning a woman called from Georgia, she had been shaken in her faith dealing with a husband who is handicapped, and she told Him that pastors had told her that her suffering was caused by her lack of faith. And He [Jesus] responded with this comment “That she did have faith and that what she had been told by pastors came from the pit of Hell.”

I knew that the topics of war, suffering, sin and scripture would come up in the discussion, and I knew that sometime during the night that someone with certain faith questions would call and this situation arise when Jesus would have to answer a human on earth dealing with such issues. Although His response was loving and strong, I believe that it is dangerous for any man to sit in a place of religious authority and speak as Jesus Christ.

And if this was Jesus Christ, was this the second coming, where were the choirs of angels and the rising of the dead from their slumber? Nothing was said of the Middle East. I am sure that Ian had his questions prepared before the interview. He conducted the interview very professionally and with great respect. I just did not find this man plausible.

While he was talking, I was reading my text by Richard J. Foster, Life with God. And as I read, I tried to place the voice on the radio into the text I was reading, alas, I did not feel an overwhelming feeling of grace and peace, as if I was really listening to the Savior of the World, The Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the end. I came across this prayer in the text:

O send Thy Spirit, Lord, now unto me,
That He may touch my eyes and make me see;
Show me the truth concealed within They word,
For in Thy book revealed I see Thee, Lord.

Somehow it just did not seem plausible that the man on the radio last night was the One True Christ. He did not impart any new truth, however hard he attempted to cite scripture and to admonish those who would use His name in vain, to which he replied at one point that “Many used his name in vain every day” by acting the way they did towards others while espousing belief in Christianity.

I guess I was hoping for some divine teaching, I guess I hoped that something spiritual would take place as I listened through the radio, that God would speak to the world and say,

Luke 3:21-22

When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

There was no voice from the heavens to confirm that Jesus Christ was among us. There was no angelic hosts or choirs, and God did not reveal himself to me last night. I just believe that had Jesus really come down to earth to address man, he would have had something substantive to say. He would have addressed certain truths and He would have given us something truly Godly, as in Godly counsel.

This man supposedly [Jesus Christ] knew his bible and could quote like any good scholar or biblical student, yet I did not hear in His voice one ounce of Jesus, that one comes to know in reading scripture. We have many incarnations of Jesus on film and TV. And we all have preconceived notions of what He looks like in contemporary culture. He even offered that people like to see Jesus on the cross crucified and suffering yet not laughing, as in the photo that I have used in this post. Again, I did not feel one ounce of Jesus.

I believe that whomever that was on the radio last night was respectful of Christian teaching and he was well prepared for the questions fielded to him by Ian. I just seriously doubted Him when it came to answering questions from the general public. I think it is truly dangerous that someone would take on that respective personification, because the stakes are too high for millions of people to think that Jesus chose the vehicle of a late night talk radio show to make his presence known.

I know not very Godly is it?

It isn’t my place to Judge anyone, but if the real Christ has come down from heaven last night, the angles would have sung, the world would be a different place today and God would have spoken, those things did not happen. In the end I have to say that some man came on the radio using the name Jesus Christ, but I was not convinced in the deepest part of my heart of hearts that he was the One True Christ.


Do You Believe ???

Last night on Coast to Coast am, we heard Sean David Morton talk about the future. I stayed up all night to listen to this show and I moved in on the Mayan Calendar information that he shared with listeners. If we are to move forward in our evolution here, maybe we should be listening to those men and women who are showing us the particular sign posts that we should be paying attention to.

Sean David Morton is one of the most respected futurist and remote viewers to participate in the Coast to Coast Radio show. Which can be heard around the world each night on thousands of stations.

I was struck by his uncanny ability to be certain in his words and that he had many positive hits over the years on world events that are occurring as we speak. There is much going on in the world, and he spoke about those of us who are intuitive and have gifts of second sight that our abilities are becoming alive and that we should be paying attention to what we are seeing and sensing, and that we should be paying attention to these occurrences.

For those of you who are interested in this kind of information, here is what I thought was important to share.

Futurist and intuitive Sean David Morton returned to share his predictions and insights. He discussed how humanity is affected by different cycles. For instance, a shift of energy starts with the beginning of the ,‘5th night of the Mayan Calendar’, November 19, 2007, and will run through Nov. 12, 2008. This will be a time of deep crisis for the “globalist materialist culture,” he said.

May 27-29, 2010 will mark another harmonic convergence, and it’ll be 1,000 times more powerful than the one in 1987. A pulse from the center of galaxy will arrive (as predicted by the Mayans) causing a change in the quality of sunlight, and this will have positive effects on human brain chemistry.

31-07-1967 – 12 Ahau – Mayan Birthday 26-02-2008

This is the 20th day sign of the uinal

It means “sun” “light” or “lord” It carries a visionary southern energy.
Light is the day sign of completion. It embodies the final cycles of evolution, of the highest potential of all life. This is why it is the final day sign, and it is also why it causes difficulties for those born into it.

Light persons are romantic visionaries who are often misperceived as unrealistic dreamers. Artistic, athletic and gifted in music and dance, they possess vast creative abilities, but also hold a profound wisdom and a sense of leadership and protection of their communities.

Endowed with a brilliant vision others lack, Light persons expect the world of themselves, as do those around them. But because they are so advanced  they might find it difficult to understand and accept that the world they live in has not yet evolved to their own level of completion and equilibrium, instead still submerged in materialistic and ego-driven motives.

This will lead to certain disappointment and may cause Light persons to refuse responsibility, reject solutions or suggestions for improvement, or even harbor disdain or resentment towards others. Light’s challenge in life is to approach life realistically without compromising their higher dreams.

In the end however Light people will retain their natural profound spirituality that is the birthright of this last day sign of the uinal

Coming soon… 7 – 31 – 2007

As close to Canadian Idol – as I will ever get!!

This is Sass Jordan Performing LIVE here in Montreal at the Street Festival going on today in the downtown core. Ste. Catherines street is shut down and an immense stage was erected outside the HMV. We happened upon this concert and I took these photos. I think I am a good photographer, don’t you agree??? I guess you’ll be the judge of that! There are 41 photos in this set, which are all going to be put in my Flickr account so you can go see them soon. Click on the Flickr box and go to my photo stream, there are 140 photos up now. I’ve also added 11 photos of the city from the Penthouse Pool area views that you haven’t seen yet of the South Shore and of Downtown Montreal.

So here they are:









Flick'r …


I have updated my flickr account with 64 new photos. You can see them on my Flickr page on the sidebar at the bottom of the blog…
