The Lazarus Heart

He looked beneath his shirt today
There was a wound in his flesh so deep and wide
From the wound a lovely flower grew
From somewhere deep inside
He turned around to face his mother
To show her the wound in his breast that burned like a brand
But the sword that cut him open
Was the sword in his mother’s hand

Every day another miracle
Only death will tear us apart
To sacrifice a life for yours
I’d be the blood of the Lazarus heart
The blood of the Lazarus heart

Though the sword was his protection
The wound itself would give him power
The power to remake himself
At the time of his darkest hour
She said the wound would give him courage and pain
The kind of pain that you can’t hide
From the wound a lovely flower grew
From somewhere deep inside

Every day another miracle
Only death will keep us apart
To sacrifice a life for yours
I’d be the blood of the Lazarus heart
The blood of the Lazarus heart

Birds on the roof of my mother’s house
I’ve no stones that chase them away
Birds on the roof of my mother’s house
Will sit on my roof someday
They fly at the window, they fly at the door
Where does she get the strength to fight them anymore
She counts all her children as a shield against the rain
Lifts her eyes to the sky like a flower to the rain

Every day another miracle
Only death will keep us apart
To sacrifice a life for yours
I’d be the blood of the Lazarus heart
The blood of the Lazarus heart

Blood Moon Tonight

Tonight Earth’s shadow will fall over the Full Moon and make it turn blood red! At approximately 10:30PM Eastern Time, the Moon will begin enter the Earth’s shadow. The Moon will be in the deepest part of the shadow at about 12:15AM.

For those who meditate, this is an excellent night to send positive energy toward the Earth and to attune to higher stages of consciousness. For those who practice pagan faiths, tonight is an excellent night for magical workings.

And for everyone else it’s a good night to stay home! 🤣

The Prophet on Children

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.

And he said: Your children are not your children.

They are sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you, and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts, for they have their own thoughts,

You may house their bodies, but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark on the path of the infinite, and He bends you with his His might, that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is table.

The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)

Jack The Ripper

This is the infamous “Lusk Letter” sent with half of a preserved human kidney to the chairman of the Whitechapel Vigilance Committee, George Lusk, in October 1888, during the Ripper killing spree. The author claimed to have ‘fried up’ and eaten the other half of the kidney and insinuated himself to be Jack the Ripper.

This confession letter, among thousands sent to Scotland Yard and Reporters, is from the serial killer we know today as Jack the Ripper.

The letter reads:

“From hell.

“Mr Lusk,
Sor
I send you half the Kidne I took from one women prasarved it for you tother piece I fried and ate it was very nise. I may send you the bloody knif[e] that took it out if you only wate a whil[e] longer
signed

“Catch me when you can Mishter Lusk”

There was at least one, maybe two, copy cat killers around the same time. Some of the murders attributed to Jack the Ripper were not his. And a few other murders outside of his suspected time of operations, were in fact, his.
