I love my Temple Illuminatus moniker, and naturally I came up with it thanks to an article Rosey Cross sent to my way. Actually, the full name is Doog era snodoc AND ym.

    Still, there is no getting away from the body and behavior I occupy belonging to a man named John Savlove. And having worked all these years on refining a tone I'm not about to radically change my prose style under a temporary new identity.  Before the Mac Pro, and Rosey, life was about electric typewriters and then printers, correcting proofs, finding a creamy paper with heavy stock and laying the pages song by song in an elegant box that had contained a ream of blank erasable bond. Those pages and my own Google blog remain; nothing of what I posted to Rosey online in the last couple of years over two websites remains. These lessons in the ephemeral nature of all things, they do come then in the aGe of iClouds.

    The internet offers equality in so many ways that I'm convinced it is teaching us how little our petty emotions matter against the bigger things that do. It may take a lot of time and a lot of healing from the bottom up, but I do see this process already underway.

      That's about all the writing I can do today. I am mighty occupied by how much my sheer psyche matters more - at least right now - than any writing. Meanwhile, there is a big sea of untapped Savlove songs under the wrap of their own human  steam-cloud. I'm going to choose the lyrics of one now and share them to conclude this initiatory post. With love and sincere wishes for a flowing joyous river of life to all readers.

                                                              Empty Journal

An empty journal with a picture of an idol in the jacket that he wore before he died

Did he make you want to take your empty pages, turn them into something magical inside?

And you wondered if his life was that much better just because he had his words at his command

Did he show you all his pain, did he make you want to make the most of all the love there is at hand?

Your empty journal, it’s not eternal, it’s not infernal and you’ll see

This empty journal, it’s not eternal, your blank description of reality

Will you fill it with the notes of a strange person who found everything revolved around his head?

Will you fill it with the wisdom of an angel who was always much too quiet for the things she said?

Your empty journal, it’s not eternal, it’s not infernal and you’ll see

Your empty journal, it’s not eternal, this blank description of reality

Something’s telling you to find your inspiration in the music you remember best of all

And if you feel yourself in tune with your own lifetime, you may find that you are great as well as small

And you’ll wonder if your life is that much better once you finally you have your words at your command

Will you show them all your pain, will you make them want to make the most of all the love there is at hand?

Your empty journal, it’s not eternal, it’s your internal company

Your empty journal, it’s all eternal, could be your turning point, you’ll see

                                                                                                                               Savlove
