Thank you for visiting Journeys and Star Gazing. Here there's stories of my various journeys, some inner but mostly outer; photos, song lyrics, poems, astrological readings and interpretations, I Ching speculations, quotes from people I admire and some cool graphics. There are reflections and archival material on various human rights campaigns I have been involved in over the years. With these, some have a "Star Gazing" interpretive filter.
Posts include my interests in alchemy, magic, kabbalah, consciousness studies, the Fourth Way and anything else that may enter my sphere of living. I hope you enjoy your visit. I'd love to hear from you in the comments.
Follow me on Twitter @dodona777 where I mostly comment on Australian politics and my blog interests.
When I first discovered your blog this morning, for some reason I thought of Donald Petacchi. Then I see his poem on your blog. I have that same poem in a booklet entitled “Poems from the Lightspheres” from 1979. Isn’t that something!?!?!?
I suppose you know the whole story of some of these poems, since you are a font of knowing and unknowing things!
If you don’t know the Lightspheres booklet I think I could find a way to copy it, but on the first page he says it is copyrighted, so I don’t want to do anything wrong. I paid a dollar for the booklet.
Thanks for your kind words. I’m particularly touched that you should connect me with Donald Petacchi. I believe that his approach to the Work is an essential one, using the word essential in the sense of ëssence rather than personality. I am not as knowledgeable or “un” knowledgeable as you may think. However, thanks for your kind words and I am happy that you have found some use of my “wiseacrings”.
Hello Stavros……..Just wanted to say hello…My Uncle is Donald Petacchi…it was lovely to see his ‘work’ posted here..brought back memories…thank you. Best wishes, Mary A. Petacchi
He must have been an amazing man…to use Gurdjieff’s term – a remarkable man to have as an uncle. Thank you for taking the time to write.
all the best
