The Sphinx at Gizeh

April 03rd, 2013 by Adam G.

I saw the other day the Sphinx’s painted face.
She had painted her face in order to ogle Time.

You Can’t Go Back

Why, that house couldn’t have been as small as now it seems.

I remember these things, and they were real, and and they are real now where I keep them in remembrance.

But we can’t go back.

Visions of the Son of God

December 24th, 2011 by Vader

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain…
