The sun was quite low in the horizon, and dark purple clouds, gathering in the west, indicated an approaching storm. Anxious to reach my spirit-home before such an event, I was nevertheless compelled to keep within the earth's atmosphere. The aspect...
Pagina 206 - The spirit world is all voice. Never have I heard notes clearer, louder, deeper, than resound through the electric air that surrounds my home.
