Sandra Martin, Snapshots: Memories and Recipes

“Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you've changed, by believing. Once you've changed, other things start to follow. Isn't that the way it works?” ― Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

Contactees sometimes have a hard time conveying their encounters when the evidence is lacking. However, this experiencer has an edge. A successful artist, Robert Llimos provides an incredible perspective with his colorful and detailed recreations of those he interacted with. The ETs he sculpts and paints are beautiful and quite obviously not of this planet. He is sharing his work and their images in hopes of reducing fear in anticipation of eventual contact.

Can't overlook this Star Trek + Cats = Crowd pleaser - People  My favorite is Spock. Hardcover book available - Amazon

In Snapshots: Memories and Recipes, Sandra Martin, former A-list Literary Agent, offers up a mix of unusual, unexplained and unexpected in her recollections of working with clients and hob-nobbing with celebs over book deals. Recipes embellish each re-telling. (Orange Chiffon Cake looks divine!)

You may recognize some of her award winning work here too: Paraview Productions

Intuition, PSI, Remote Viewing, Conspiracy, Life after Death, Mediumship and Consciousness started finding a home under the "New Age" umbrella as the category was beginning to emerge.

Sandra Martin arrived on the scene and that category exploded.

There are plenty of star names to draw from to make the point but the book is also about Sandra's journey; how the reluctant "Literary Agent" stepped up to the plate as a favor for a friend and knocked "New Age" out of the "woo-woo" park and smack into mainstream.

Names you might recognize: Jim Marrs and John Cleese. Sandra gets a thank you in Remote Viewers by Jim Schnable and David Morehouse credits Sandra in the open of his book, Lethal Weapons: War Without Death.

(In the interview, we talk about  a dinner party with Ingo Swann that didn't go quite the way it was planned.)

Other names in passing: Richard Bach (Newsletter is active this link is the Blog)Glenn Close now getting accolades on Broadway. Link is to a fabulous review on The Daily Beast. Danny Glover (actor, author, activist: his twitter link) and one Leprechaun who will most likely prefer to remain anonymous. Read the book: Snapshots.

One more thing: Jonathan Livingston Seagull Part 4 Why not now?

"When the book was written, it had four parts, not three. I wondered, then, why I had written the last part. It was simply not required in the world of that time, there was no force, no pressure then that bound individuals into controlled groups." ...   

In the works, a Jonathan Livingston Seagull interactive book...
