My God, life goes so fast. It was such an amazing time. Our neighbors, Oda and Faulby Parkhurst (he was the mayor of the town and all around playboy- lol) and our friends Larry and Jenny (who we can't seem to find anywhere on the internet! :(     ---  Such a great time-  before cell phones and computers and people tweeting and twatting- rotary phones-  good god, I'm old!  Anyway, please check out the book -  and if you would like to see some of my pictures of Red Boiling from our visit a year or so ago, you can see them on my Pinterest page, here: https://www.pinterest.com/pennievans/photography/

  The Light  
        

Okay, so if you know anything about me, you know that I had an encounter one night in 2004 with a being of light. You can read about it here http://www.unexplainedresearch.com/in_the_news/UFO_Mondovi.html   It was certainly an interesting experience and one that changed my life in a lot of ways. Currently, I am working on a book called, "The Light," about three people who also have, one night, in the cornfields, an encounter with a being of light. The book will be fiction. My experience, was a fact. I thought it would be interesting to write a book based on this event. I have two other books on my Francis CoCo page, that you might be interested in- you can check them out here www.amazon.com/author/franciscoco

  The Lady on the Rooftops  
        

Oh the road to End-dor is the
oldest road
And the craziest road of all!
Straight it runs to the Witch's
abode,
As it did in the days of Saul,
And nothing has changed of the
sorrow in store
For such as go down on the
road to En-dor!

 

Rudyard Kipling (1919)

  How to tell if you're brainwashed....  
        

Please excuse my flat earth fervor but, really, how exciting to find out that we are the center of the Universe!

How to tell if you're brainwashed:

1. You believe the earth is spinning at 1000 mph but you can't feel it.

2. You believe the oceans are curving because of "gravity" but you can't measure it.

3.You believe ships disappearing over the horizon is proof of the globe and not due to perspective.

4. You believe pilots would not have to account for the earth's curvature or spin while flying.

5. You believe the sun is really 93,000,000 miles away.

6. You believe NASA's pictures of earth from space are real.

7. You believe the earth is a spinning ball whirling through infinite space without a single proof.

  Documentary...  
        

Well, a quick note as to what I'm up to- If anyone is interested :)  ----  I am working on a documentary.  I can't really say what it's about but I am so excited about it and consider it to truly be important.  And, if not important to anyone else, important to me-   I have never done anything like this and don't know the first thing about it, but I'm learning.  It's harder than I thought it would be but, I can't wait until it's finished.  I wish so much that I felt like painting or writing but I just don't feel like that's what I want to do at this time, so I've switched gears.  So, no new paintings for a while.  But maybe a break is good.  Anyway, I should spend the next year or so on this and I hope whoever is reading this post will send good thoughts my way -- I so want it to turn out good! I'm not sure if, when it's finished I will put it out for the public or just share with friends and family  -- hmmmm --- I don't know, I think I've learned a lesson or two about exposing yourself to the world. But we'll see. --- Oh, and Happy Halloween!  :)

  A dream I had...  
        

I dreamt this a few years ago.----- I was sitting at a desk, on the computer when Patrick Swayze walked up to me. He was looking for something. He looked great.  He had a full head of hair and a lot of weight on him. I said, "Oh my God, you look GREAT!" --- He said, "I feel great!" ---- I asked him what it was like to be dead and he sort of shrugged like, not a problem. ---- "Do you see God?" I asked.--- "Yes,I see God." ----"What about the devil? Do you see the devil?"---- "Yes, I can see the devil," he said. ---- "Oh God," I said, "I would not want to see the devil!" --- He smiled, "It's okay, you can discuss things with him, like politics."

  The earth is flat...  
        

The earth is flat. You can laugh if you want to, but it's true. There's a firmament over it and so, basically, we live in a snow globe.

  Strange Symmetries around Prince's passing  
        

Okay, so, I am not much of a conspiracy theorist, but, there were some very VERY strange symmetries around Prince's passing and I would like to talk about them here. Some strange things happened around his passing and some stranger ones have come out now and they should be discussed. So let's begin: First of all, the biggest one was that he died in an elevator. I mean, what are the odds of that? In an interview with Chris Rock in the 90's Prince said the elevator symbolized Satan.  He said, "Stay happy, Stay focused and you can beat the elevator."  And then he dies in one?  And now we find out that not only was he found in an elevator but his clothes were on backwards and inside out. And not just his clothes but also his socks. I understand you may quickly throw on your clothes, but, in a medical emergency, why would you care to put on socks? ------He died on April 21st. Which was also the date that he accidentally overdosed on wine and asprin back in 1996 and had to have his stomache pumped according to Ronin Ro's book. So, he almost died of an overdose on the exact same day 20 years before. And the very bizarre fact that he also had an album titled, "3121" a few years back.  3 + 1 = 4 , so from that we get 4/21.  The date of his death.  Why would he title that album 3121?  He said it was his favorite bible verse in Psalms.  But it's bizarre. Also we have his song, "Sometimes It Snows in April." which he recorded on April 21st and which was a song about his death ----- The final track on Hit n Run 2 ends with him saying, "That's it," and a section of silence.----In his last year or so his look had gone back to how he looked in the very beginning of his career, with the afro and clothing. ----Right before he passed he changed his Twitter picture to the one that it is now, with the third eye open and his human eyes closed.----On his Instagram page he posted pictures and white blank spaces to form an upside down Prince symbol, the final picture completing the symbol being posted right before death----His last public words, at Paisley Park just after the emergency plane landing were, "Wait a few days before you waste any prayers," and he passed days later. ----He tweeted, "Just when you thought you were safe.." right before he passed---- During his Piano and Microphone tour, he talked at one of his shows of lucid dreaming and dead people coming to him in dreams-----Around the World in a Day was released on April 21, 1985 and if you open the Vinyl LP you will see a rainbow on the page with the Paisley Park lyrics and on the day Prince passed a rainbow appeared over Paisley Park going in exactly the same direction as pictured in the liner notes of the album----Prince was something different. He was magic. He was in tune with the Universe. When he said, "I'm not your woman, I'm not your man, I am something that you'll never understand." He was right.

  My time with a cult....  
        

This morning as I was checking my emails, I saw that I had a message from a man who had run across my name when doing a Google search for Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee.  He wanted to know what I knew of the Anzara Hotel and the cult who ran it. I thought I would write a quick piece about it before responding to him.  Wow! The Anzara Hotel!  What a place!  It is now called The Thomas Hotel and is supposedly haunted. The crew from the show Paranormal State have done a few shows there and ghost hunters from all over come to stay and hope to see a ghost.  They are in the wrong place.  The most haunted house in all of America is in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, let me tell you ,and it ain't the Thomas Hotel.  I never saw anything ghostly while staying there, and I'm pretty certain this is just a gimmick to draw business, but, as I've learned from my own experiences, no one has any right telling anyone else what they saw or what did or did not happen to them when it comes to the supernatural, so let me back off there.  Okay! Back to the cult!  So, as I've said in my bio, I was raised by coyotes.  And since that was the case, I left home at sixteen.  My now husband (then boyfriend) had a similar background (Please read his book Anneewakee - such a great book)  anyway,, so we left our abusive homes and ran away (no one was following but we ran anyway) to Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee.  I have so many stories about Red Boiling and our wonderful time there- they would fill a book -  and I hope to one day write about it but for now, I want to talk about the Cult.  We stayed at all three hotels in Red Boiling at different times, but for a few months we lived at the Anzara.  I was seventeen then and very naive, I knew nothing of cults or anything like that, and wasn't even sure they WERE a cult until we'd left and Dateline or one of those shows did a piece on them, somewhere around 1990.  By the time they did the piece, the cult had picked up and split.  Anyway, my boyfriend and I got a room at the Anzara.  At that time, there was a very big, hard-nosed woman who owned the hotel (she was the leader of the cult) and in the beginning, I thought they were just Baptists or something and I remember telling her, "I'm a Christian......Baptist?" - She just looked at me like I was stupid. Our room was downstairs by the laundry room. I remember some strange people staying there, which I chalked up to just people being strange.  My seventeen year old mind was blown, though, one night, very late, when I crept down to the kitchen (we were allowed use of the kitchen)  and I saw the people staying at the hotel, naked, and dancing in the dining room.  I ran back to my room, terrified, like, "What the fuck did I just see?"  ---- I remember, also, there was a very rich lady staying at the hotel.  I now know the cult was milking her for her money, but back then, I wasn't hip to people and their motives.  Anyway, so this fancy pants lady was from New York City and she had a little white dog and she and I would sit on the swing on the front porch and I would smoke her Pall Mall filterless cigarettes with her (and almost die because they had no filter!)  and we had a lot of long talks.  I don't remember now about what but, I really liked this lady. I do remember that she was sad and she seemed very lonely. It was summer then, and I recall that she drank a lot of sweet tea. -- Funny, as I think of our time there, I also remember that there was a front desk in the foyer, with an old fashioned cash register, and back then, it cost fifty dollars a week to stay at the hotel and my boyfriend would pay our fee, and then, when the cult leaders were out of sight,, he would go back and hit the NO SALE button, and take our money back.  Don't judge! I told you we were raised by wolves.  There's more I could write but I'll close with my most memorable time at the Anzara.  One night,  we were starving and my boyfriend stole down to the concession stand that was by the pool.  It was unlocked, and he snuck inside and stole all kinds of snack food and brought it up to the room.  I was so excited- look at all this food! Ho-ho's, ding dings, icicle popsicles! Holy crap!  We stuffed ourselves silly.  Once we were nice and full, we lay back on the bed, thrilled that we'd gotten all this free food (remember, back then we were young, poor teenagers)  smiling, wrappers all over the bed, and then we began to remember the things we'd seen; At that point, my boyfriend had begun to suspect that they were a cult or that something was up, and then we became terrified.  What if we'd been poisoned, Jim Jones style? What if this food we'd eaten had been intended for their big finale? We were so scared then.  I'll never forget laying there thinking, "Oh no. What have we done?" We might die. Oh God... Oh God....    We left not long after. Recently, I stopped by the Thomas Hotel and chatted with the new owner.  She said that the lady who'd run the cult had come to the Thomas Hotel at some point after she'd bought it and told the new owner that she'd once owned it and the lady knew who she was. I guess everyone has a story in them, or many stories, but my life has played out like frames in a movie.  My Red Boiling Springs experience was one.  My Mondovi experience was another. I have had a very strange life..... UPDATE---  Since posting this,I have now had two more people contact me regarding the Anzara, both are working on a book about the town and the hotel. The last guy told me that after the new owners took over, they found giant circles with feathers and blood in some of the rooms, beneath the carpet and folded metal prayers in the trees.  That is certainly interesting!  What in the world was going on at that hotel?

My husband is working on a book about Red Boiling, available for pre-order here https://www.amazon.com/Steve-Salem-Evans/e/B00UW3ID54  I read some of it yesterday and it is so good! I'm excited for it to come out!

  Admission is easy, just say you believe and come to the place in your heart....  
        

Paisley Park is in your heart.     So, Prince died today.  I cannot believe it.  I have been a fan since I was seven years old and a huge part of me is now crushed. There will never be anyone to replace him, ---  never.  I was so lucky to have been a child and a teenager during the time period that he was making music and being a genuis in every area. I loved his films, -  I still watch Under the Cherry Moon when I'm feeling down and Graffiti Bridge when I need a spiritual lift. So, this is a sad day for the entire world and I'm just a teeny part of it.  I feel so grateful for the time my family and I travelled to Chanhassen and went to Paisley Park and chased his little ass all over town.  Rest in purple, Prince.
