going into hiding
Well, a lot has happened to the project over the last few weeks. Some things incredible, outstanding and uplifting. Others terrifying and soul destroying. I have to go away now, and I’m not sure for how long. I’m going to be out of touch with the Internet, so I guess this is the end of my blogging days for a good long time. I’ve given all my notes, thoughts and scribblings to a good friend. He’s a writer and he thinks he can turn what happened into a book and maybe even get it published. Obviously he’ll have to call it fiction, because there’s no proof that it ever happened.
The scrolls told me something awesome, something beautiful. Something to take your breath away and leave you stunned. Just knowing it happened has left me with a feeling of peace despite everything else that followed. We found a story of love and heroism, so glorious that you have to feel that the world is not yet lost, that we may yet see a new day dawn. Trouble is, what followed the discovery also told me that there are still people in this world who will go to any lengths to prevent the tale from ever being told. It lay hidden in a cave in Southern France for 2,000 years. It was found and almost immediately hidden away again. Maybe for a few more years, maybe decades. Perhaps even another 2,000 years. Who knows. Certainly I don’t. Still, even with no proof, I still hope for the best, hope that my writer friend can at least make the story known, even if it’s only as a fictional tale.
So, if you want to know more, here’s the web site he’s set up. Read the story, have a little faith. It’s a beautiful world we live in, maybe one day we can all enjoy it.
