Man on Empty Road

whatever time I’ve left on earth
in quiet wonder.
That is all.
No other fool or feral spirit
now can pierce the sky I’ll make
containing not a trace
of iron or brass
or thunder.

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #37: “Blue-Eyed, Green-Eyed Girl”

Posted on Updated on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #37: “Blue-Eyed, Green-Eyed Girl”. This is a metaphor-laden tale of no-holds-barred love.

This brief introduction here explains its context, before you read it, so you will better understand it. This book is set during the countdown years of the present aeon, on the cusp of the new aeon, and it focuses on the ingathering and work of strategic counterculture groups (cells of the genuine ekklesia, about which more below) around the world who refer to themselves as “Reluctant Angels” (for reasons which will Read the rest of this entry »
