Pretty! Thank you, Chris.

I’m going out to the end of the island today to interview people for the Duke Parapsychology Lab book. I can’t believe no one has written this book and I get to do it. There is such a treasure trove of stories. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been going through all the boxes of materials I brought back from Duke, listing the stories, and picking the best. The best = tells the story of what went on inside that lab, and is interesting or weird or sad.

At the same time I’m looking for films and tapes and people who knew the people I’m writing about it, so I can describe them accurately.

I’m bringing a camera and a scanner, and hopefully will have good pictures to post when I get back.
