It’s Friday, and I’m taking care of the last minute details before my computer is placed on a long, long trailer, along with 73 boxes, and very little furniture on Saturday, December 28th, for the journey to Texas. After living in Los Angeles for 27 years, I’m looking forward to returning to my home state, and starting a new life. I’m already missing California’s great weather.
May all of your wishes come true this holiday season, and Happy New Year!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is my favorite Christmas story. It is clearly a symbol of Chiron, the wound that represents the gift of healing.
The lightning hooves of Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen, guide Santa’s sleigh through a winter storm on Christmas Eve, led by the luminosity of Rudolph’s gift that illuminates the team’s path through the mist!
Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and joyous Christmas and New Year!

The crystallized peace and stillness of the white of winter!
To all of my devoted followers. It’s Saturday, December 7th, and it’s pouring rain in California. I’m having a cup of coffee, before the angels and I continue packing to leave Los Angeles, and return to Texas on December 28, 2013. So far, I’ve counted 25 medium-sized boxes of books, and that’s after donations. Yikes!
I will post as often as possible between now and watching my computer loaded on the moving truck, and get back to it, as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience, and Happy Holidays!

THE BATTLE OF MONS
In August 1914, a valiant British Expeditionary Force marched through Belgium to connect with French forces when suddenly and unexpectedly found themselves confronted by the main thrust of advancing German forces. During a massive attack by the Germans, the British troops, being heavily outnumbered and outflanked suffered many casualties, were forced to rapidly retreat.
The supernatural allies saved members of the British Army by leading them across a field to a hidden, sunken road to escape.
In September 1914, a Welsh author, named Arthur Machen published a fictional short story entitled “The Bowmen” in The Evening News, a London newspaper. He was inspired by accounts of World War I, the Battle at Mons, near Belgium, and an idea he had soon after.
The short story described phantom bowmen from the Battle of Agincourt summoned by a soldier calling on St. George to destroy German troops. Machen’s story was not, however, labeled as fortuitous fiction and the unintended result was that he received a number of requests to produce evidence, and sources for the story from his readers, who perceived it as the truth, or a hoax. Machen responded that it was imaginary, and had no desire to create a hoax.
The imaginary story snowballed into an urban legend, later becoming the “The Angels of Mons.” Other magazines requested permission to reprint the story, and for sources. However, Machen replied that he had none.
THE ANGELS OF MONS
The Angels of Mons is an urban legend about the intervention of a spectral army of angelic warriors, that stood on the front lines between British and German armies. Over a period of six days, as the battle raged on, soldiers and officers reported that angels dressed in shining white garments appeared during the fierce battle.
The story was even told by German prisoners of ghostly bowmen, led by a tall figure on a white horse, who urged the British troops to move forward. The retreat and the battle were rapidly perceived by the British public as being a key moment in the war.
