The theme of my blog is the Event Horizon, the point at which the pace of events and change quickens and gets faster and faster and faster, until things get so cockeyed that you hardly know which end is up, the world is spinning and whirling all around you, left becomes right, up is down, black is white — and things become so furious, the crescendo of insanity howls and shrieks all around you, the world seems to lose all normal sense, people act out in all sorts of strange and bizarre ways, there are more and more abnormal weather events, earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars, floods, economic crises, and more — there may even by mind-numbing mass mortality events.
It seems more than you can take in or bear, and still it keeps coming.

For the first time, scientists have studied clouds and wind on the night side of Venus. And they’ve found that it’s very different from the day side.
That data comes from ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft, which entered orbit around Venus in April 2006 before being crashed into the planet in December 2014. Led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the study was published in Nature.

* Venus is now one of only three planets aside from Earth – the others being Mars and Jupiter – that have a human spacecraft in orbit.
Outside the dramatic inventions of Shakespeare, Drayton, Herrick et al., most accounts of human interaction with the faeries from the Early Modern period are derived from the disparate records of witch trials. These records often chronicle the accused witches’ testimony (usually under torture) of consorting with faerie familiars, for the purposes of divination, healing and sometimes flying to Sabbaths. Historians such as Carlo Ginzberg and Emma Wilby have teased out the detail from the trial records to create a convincing argument that they encode genuine evidence of shamanic practice amongst the witches, who were frequently able to interact with the faeries in a disassociated altered state of consciousness. The records supply us with the largest body of documentary evidence for the ontology of the faeries between the 16th and 18th centuries. But there is one unusual case that comes down to us from different sources, and yet contains many of the motifs usually contained in the witch trials. This is the story of Anne Jefferies from St Teath, close to the north coast of Cornwall.
The Faerie Abduction of Anne Jefferies
The Ronettes perform “Be My Baby” and “Shout” from the film, The Big T.N.T. Show, (1965) Directed by Larry Peerce. The song “Be My Baby” was composed by Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry and the song “Shout” was composed by O’Kelly Isley, Ronald Isley, and Rudolph Isley.
“Songwriter, Ray Hildebrand was Paul. “Paula” was Jill Jackson, the niece of the owner of the boarding house where Ray lived at the time. This 1963 song had simple words and a lingering melody however, it was one of those melodies that just ‘stayed with you’; so much so that it practically topped every music chart in early 1963.”
