Jesse Hanson Thanks Linda, for adding me to your goodreads friends list. Want to wish you the best with your 2 books and in all else, as well.
Hope you wont't think it too forward of me if I ask you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man, for your reading list. It's kind of experimental, and it's fictional, but is inspired by events from my own life. Namaste, jesse

Thanks much Linda, Conversations with Mr. Kiki looks fun and interesting. I currently have so many books on my to read list, so I hate to keep adding, but if you'll please remind me in a few months, I'd be willing to add it then. I have some people who added my book so long ago and I wonder if they'll ever read it? Well, I have to think the best--that they will. Namaste, Jesse

Linda Atnip I am currently winding up a four day stay in New Iberia, LA, the setting for many of the James Lee Burke novels set in Louisiana. As visceral and magical and poetic as Mr. Burke's descriptions are, the real thing is even more tasty. It's now my favorite city in small town America and I plan to re-locate my production offices from New Orleans to New Iberia in September! I'm making a docudrama DANCING AT THE EDGE OF MADNESS, a Troubadour of Light Production, that begins in Tallahassee, segues to Hollywood and then to New Orleans. Along the way and sandwiched in between are stops in Australia (New South Wales, Tasmania and Brisbane; Santa Fe, the CHEROKEE Nation in NC, the TAOS PUEBLO in New Mexico and the SEMINOLE NATION in the swamps of the Okochobee in south Florida...How does it all tie together? You'll have to see the documentary...and read the upcoming book.


message 34: by Linda

Linda Atnip Look for an upcoming article by me in the SEDONA JOURNAL OF EMERGENCE. It's basically an excerpt from my new book, "Born Shaman: Dancing at the Edge of Madness" which chronicles my near-death experiences of 2014 -- there were four of them! I'm eager to share the life changes I have experienced with all of you.
