Dereliction…

rs-090

*

…That night Jed’s ‘derelict’ appears in the bed-room enveloped in an aura of light.

He slowly crouches and whispers in my ear:

” ‘E cummin outta dem bushes shinin’,

‘e shinin’ like sum black buff sun.

*

‘E donna wear no tatter and tare, no spray inniz ‘air.

‘E sittin pretty an’ neat.

*

‘E neat,like new minted craze.

*

Dat ear-ring glow hee’z a showin,

talkin mantin dat mooved to pierce dat ear.

*

An dat finger-der-tappin,

tappin tall tales on da-bone of de stick.

*

De walkin stick of de lizard man.

‘E ooold an he no sum trick wit de sky…

De slyyy lizard man.

*

Daaat iz why ‘e  talkin iz cunny tales

‘e talkin dem cunny tales to rayze a smile.

*

He starts to cackle loudly, his

white teeth shining in the dark.

*

” Dem not angels givin baaad dreams

Sri Papa. Dem baaad blood spiritz. An

daay needs a crushin an stampin aaat. “…

THE LIVING ONE

Caravan to Cairns

Stuart France

Two young men, a road trip across the Australian Outback, strange encounters in isolated settlements… and a book that will change one of them forever.

From the harsh heat of the dusty road to the cool of the Temple, two stories… one immediate, one timeless… intertwine to illuminate each other.

Many scholars believe that the Gospel of Thomas preserves a glimpse into the oral tradition of the Essenes. The book is a collection of sayings, parables and dialogues attributed to Jesus. In this unique interpretation author and essayist, Stuart France brings the oral tradition to life, retelling the Gospel in his own words, in the way it may have been told around the hearth-fires of our fore-fathers.

Accompanied by in-depth comments which draw upon the Mystery School Tradition, The Living One provides a new window on an age-old story.

“… fascinating and unique …”  Amazon review
