“I like the wisdom and the humor…”

- Prof. Mark B. Woodhouse , PhD. Associate Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, Georgia State University; author of Paradigm Wars: Worldviews for a New Age

These inspirational/channeled/whatever writings of yours…had a familiar ring to me, because it was sort of channeled, sort of self-transcending, sort of “flow,” sort of inspirational, and also quite beautiful, like a gifted lyrical poet/writer. I found the writing to be especially attractive aesthetically, speaking as a literature lover and poet. It has a lot more lyrical figurative loveliness to it and attention to how things are said than most New Age typo writing…of so much of the material that I end up reading, and it sure is a lot, your writing is especially aesthetically pleasing to me. And what it’s saying, the ideas, are right-feeling and thinking to me as well. I like the way you get going in techno-shaman-expertise mixed argot riffs. I also think of the late Terence McKenna and a number of others…some of us form this invisible college club of sorts in this genre, this mode, this way of being and doing. So I recognize in you a bird of the same basic feather.”

"Eni Lightbeam: Master Teacher"
transmitted through T.S. Minton


What follows are lightly channeled writings, a synergy of transmissions from realms beyond and the percolating simulacrum of the unconscious. Meta-rational skeptics are invited to open new channels, and hardline debunkers are instructed to take a flying leap at donut. Knowers wink your inner eye.


Master Teacher "Eni Lightbeam" issues forth...
(These readings were inspired by instructions in Wealth 101 by the late Peter McWilliams.)

A message on Clarity:
"Stay clear, if you want to steer your own course."

A message on Feeling:
"To become real, feel."

Cover of the tag-tag but fiercely original print zine Hieroglyph Gumbo #1, published in spring 1991 at Boston University and founded by yours truly and Miami writer and former filmmaker Daniel Calabrese (click here for his current Facebook page). The cover was co-designed by Adam Thorsell, later the lead singer of the Boston-area "Nautical Punk" band the Medveds, see

"There our home was a school bus / Shaded by trees of mesquite"

"One of the most remarkable bodies of work I have ever encountered."

The photographic artist who devised this hilarious and ingenious spin on Jack Ruby's surprise murder of "lone gunman" Lee Harvey Oswald is unknown, but he or she retains full copyright. A former co-worker of mine named Dave at Intuit Inc. here in Tucson claimed that a friend of his was the creator, but I have since lost the contact information for either of them. My intention is in no way to infringe on the artist's copyright; I will gladly take this photo down or provide proper attribution, if so requested by the original artist.

Since Yahoo's GeoCities is closing October 26, 2009, it's imperative that I post links from the wild and wooly pages of my former online arts magazine Eleusinian Visions, now archived at the Smithsonian-sponsored Internet Archive "Wayback Machine." Tucked away in my GeoCities file manager, I also have some unpublished gems from the talented stable of artists, writers, and creative firebrands I featured on that site (which eventually morphed into the defunct TSM Visions and Interfusion Visions, which is still hosted on Tripod, see I'll also feature on this blog a few unpublished items of my own.

Here's the link to Eleusinian Visions, which received the Ernest Slyman Best Webzine Award in 1998, and these words from the noted poet Mr. Slyman: "Terrific pages. Great design. Great contribution to the World Wide Web."

And here's the even more obscure TSM Visions:
