Softcover Edition available from Lulu.com
TUCSON, Arizona is in metaphysical ways an enchanted city. A number of light trance and waking experiences in which I realized there are invisible but very substantial buildings JUST on the ‘other side’ from Our Consensus Reality, something I later found was borne-out by other visitors who have had similar delightful visions, filled me with such a confident, creative energy such as I had never felt before… although I won prizes with my writing since pre-High School days, Tucson is the place in which I began recounting my tales, and imagining new ones. I wrote a number of unusual texts in 2008, the year I got here. This is one of them.
