What would you say if you could talk to a tree?

And more to the point, what would the tree say to you?
We have here the story of the Empress of Inertia and Aeschylus, an old, slowly vanishing oak tree. It’s a modern day ferry tale—a story about getting from there to here. It takes place on a river, deep in the metaphorest. It’s about nothing and it’s about everything, all at once.
It might make you wonder.

Chrome Cady: A Quote Woman on the Run

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Too bad! Chrome Cady is chock-full of quotations and we don’t know nuthin! But life is for learning, sometimes the hard way.

Chrome Cady is a raunchy tale of running away to a world of watching and being watched, colored ambiguous by nonbinary gradients in which male and female intermingle. It’s a ribald romp of friendship and artwork fueled by the Power of Belief and the faith to Begin Again, with intersexed, androgynous, transgender, and other genderqueer folks leading their lives in pretty much open-hearted acceptance of the so-called gendernormal people among them.

Enter a world of luminous paintings, laughing bells, and fireflies. But don’t expect to stay long: Everyone goes away.

And check out those quotations!

Please: If you see Cady Villanueva [McKessnor] Anderson Stroble _____, give her a hug, give her this book, and tell her to call me!


Psychopomps: No One Dies Alone

by Sue Klefstad

A Seven-Minute Video

Psychopomps are End Friends: escorts to the afterlife who come to help us with the transition of death.
“But at the time of transition, your guides, your guardian angels, people whom you have loved and who have passed on before you, will be there to help you. We have verified this beyond a shadow of a doubt, and I say this as a scientist. There will always be someone to help you with this transition.” —Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
