Back in September of 1999 I got to see, hear & be with Terence for the last time. There were so many cool moments in his Allchemical Conference on the big island of Hawaii. I did a little sketch during his conversation with Tom Robbins on Psychedelic Literature. As I was looking at the sketch there are notes from his talk, one line of which says, “Posthumous Glory, that’s where the action is…” Yes Terence 20 years after your passing we celebrate you as a visionary guide accessible like never before on a worldwide web of consciousness. May the psychedelic angels of light bring healing to our troubled tribe of earthlings and help us remember the champions of higher love and intelligence driving evolution forward toward a new alliance of sustainability between humanity and the life web. Blessings & appreciation to the McKennas! @terencemckennaofficial
