>I saw Isaac Bonewits in the hospital today. His surgery was successful, in
>the sense that it re-configured his intestinal tract in the planned way.
>But otherwise, he looked more miserable than I've seen him so far during
>There were both the Rolling Thunder and the fundraiser. All that energy and
>effort is very much appreciated. However, it seems that he needs some more
>short-term focus on specific issues. Anyone who ever studied with Isaac, or
>read Isaac's works, knows the importance of directing energies to isolated
>I've received Phae's permission to propose an unusual approach so that each
>issue is separately and solely targeted by a specific group of people. As a
>member of Hermes Council (see his book The Pagan Man for a description), I'm
>going to base who targets what based on an orthographic method.
>Here's the list:
>If your groups' name (or, if you're solitary, your magical name) begins with
>the letters A through F inclusive, focus on pain management. He is been worn
>down by the continuous grind of dealing with the pain. He has pain from the
>surgery, but he also feels pain from the two tumors in his lymph nodes. You
>are asked to focus on relieving the pain so he can sleep, and make the work
>of the other groups possible.
>If your name (group or solitary) begins with G-M, your task is to work on
>healing the results of his colostomy. That surgery needs to be healed so his
>body can focus on recovering from the chemotherapy. This surgery is
>temporary; healed tumors mean the procedure can be reversed. But it needs to
>heal for the tumor-reduction process to work.
>If your name begins with N-T, your focus is on the tumors. There are five
>sites: three in his colon, and two in the lymph nodes underneath his
>stomach. The point of the surgery was to stop the colon tumors from being
>abraded, which put his body in the position of healing the surface of his
>tumors instead of recovering from the chemotherapy. Now that that confusion
>has been addressed, your task is tumor reduction.
>If your name begins with U through Z, or you use some non-Roman or
>non-alphabetic sigil for the name of your group, your task is to work on
>Isaac's spirit. The point of my going through the "gooey" details in the
>previous paragraphs was to give you some insight into why this entire
>process is grinding him down. Those of us who know from contact, speeches,
>and his books remember him as vital, opinionated, infuriating, and wise.
>Focus on connecting Isaac with those spiritual strengths again.
>Special assignment: If you live within convenient traveling distance from
>Valley Cottage NY, there is an important and valuable contribution you can
>make that even supersedes the magical working outlined above. Please contact
>Phae for more information.
