|09:35 am - Getting to where I need to be.|
I put away Abramelin last night. I've been reading his work each night before bed.
But last night, I found myself missing something. Something very important to me.
Because of that, I got as close as I could to what I was missing. I pulled out my copy of Chaucer and began reading The Knight's Tale.
And I fell asleep closer to the one I missed.

Abremelin is fascinating stuff, but I find that it's a touch think for pre-bed reading. And while I can't say I got nothing out of it I can't say i've used much of it either. But at least it was interesting and I feel better informed for having read it.
It is certainly curious stuff. I'm never quite sure what to make of it.
But I think that one day I'll try using it.

The idea of using it gives me a headache. it's such dense stuff and the language doesn't help. Also, you know . . . angels.

I'm a big fan of Abramelin, too. I go through phases where I read it everyday, tucking it under my bed at night.
Recently, I read Bill Heidrick's rant
Pretty interesting stuff. I'd be curious to hear what you think of it.

The "it" in question being the Abramelin work, that is
...not necessarily Heidrick.
Abramelin is some crazy stuff.
So's the Pymander of Hermes Trimesgistus.
