[aloha-donblanding] Don Blanding
- Hello Group
Nice to see this list up and running.. I also hope that all will take full
advantage of this group's possibilities and make friends and share
I am personally not a writer and don't intend to pen the "Don Blanding
Story" anytime soon, but it would be nice to learn more about thsi
interesting man. It does seems that all we know about him is what he chose to
reveal through his writing. He does share interesing tidbits that have his
fans wondering about what and who he was talking about.
I just received a copy of "Joy Is An Inside Job" and found this book to be
a definate departure for him in writing style and focus. Does anyone know if
Don was involved formally with the Science Of Mind movement? He thanks them
in the dedication of a couple of books that I know of, but he may just have
been a casual reader, a spiritual vagabond of sorts....
What did Don die of? I have wondered about that. "Joy..." mentions he
suffered from Neuritis but I haven't heard that he died of it. Has anyone
seen his obituary in the Honolulu paper?
I'll leave off here.. Im just glad to find this group, I will have many
more questions, this man was certainly an interesting, enigmatic man...
- Aloha to all,
TJ, You got me going again.
Please tell me where you got this about DB visiting Aunty Pinau
at Kaupo. I have been trying to look at old messages to see where
it came from, with no luck.
Did you ever find folks in the hana/Kaupo area that knew her?
