Holy Grail/Holy Bride Trilogy

In alchemy, the hand is a symbol of fate; but every alchemist knows that fate made conscious is destiny. Two interconnected symbols, the Ouroboros serpent eating its own tail surrounding the Seal of Solomon, catalyzed a shift I had been preparing during the twelve-year cycle of writing this book. At the moment a hand held forth these two symbols, a passage to the unknown united my past, present and future. The date was May 23, 2009. The place was Cambridge Massachusetts. The event was the kick-off for Margaret Fuller’s bicentennial held at one of the oldest churches in America, the First Parish Church in Cambridge.
