A Light Amid Dark

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

Marilyn Monroe

“I devotedly believe that the essence of my being – my spirit – is not truly a part of the universe, it is a part of Chaos. My spirit is a fragment of the Hidden God beyond the nutshell we call the cosmos; thus being trapped in a human body is only a prison in my eyes.” 

Vexior 218

Vexior 218 is a Swedish writer of Old Norse religion and mythology; the dark goddesses (Gullveig, Lilith, Hecate); runology; and Chaos-Gnosticism.

Marilyn Munroe needs no explanation.

        Today I located a copy of both his books. Abe Books (UK), one sells for £200, the other for £290. Don’t know about you, but that’s beyond my budget. Just gonna have to get it from British Library. Could be a long wait.

        Well, I have now ordered to through the library. Perhaps I’ll get it this century 🙂 I shall still keep an eye out in secondhand shops and thrift shops. I wouldn’t mind betting the book shop in Glastonbury would have it. If the shop is still there (a few years since I’ve been, by which I mean town, not festival). I keep saying I shall return. Such a good vibe there.
        Anyway, I wish you well in your search. Keep me informed. 🙂

      • I sure will. I enjoy browsing used book stores, flea markets and antique shops so much more when I have something in mind to quest for. I must try to visit Glastonbury when next I visit England. I love the Amesbury and Salisbury area and it looks not too far away. (yeah, yeah I know Stonehenge pilgrim, that’s me).

        As a happy hiker, the south of England has always appealed for its manageable hills (I live in Norfolk where hills, though steep, more resemble pimples) so the entire area has been much visited. One year we stayed at the Backpackers Hostel in Glastonbury. That was fantastic. But not so easy to get to the ‘stones’ by public transport. We found that easiest the year we stayed at Devices, even though we had a 2 mile hike uphill to catch a bus. But if you’re driving, no problem.

      • A few years ago, Hubs and I walked from the Holiday Inn in Amesbury to Stonehenge. We were told that public transport wouldn’t be running due to Easter Monday (turned out not to be true) so we hiked it. It was enough of a hike to qualify as a “Pilgrimage” in my book, but it was awesome. Some lovely locals directed us through the Kings Barrows and along the causeway alleged to have brought the stones to their current site. I was totally worth the nearly 20 km of walking involved. Such a wonderful adventure.

        That was a good walk, and in such an interesting area. I walked from Stonehenge to Durrington Walls and Woodhenge via the Curcus. All places that particularly interested me. That was a great holiday.
        BTW: email yesterday from library. No British lending library has the said book. However, I found 2 sites with FREE pdf downloads. I get nervous of these, so easy to download a virus along with the pdf. So at the moment I’m in hesitation mode. But here are the links if you’re interested. https://www.scribd.com/doc/136009437/Pan-Paradox#
        Let me know how you get on. Are they worth the download? What’d you think?
