Mother Pelican: January 2022

This significant year opens with another ‘Mother Pelican’ brimming with valuable articles. Its an important site for new Proposals and so rich in thought we need help from you if you would read and comment on any choice you make. It would be my intention at least to look at pieces by the following – BUT doubt I’ll manage it: Jeffrey Smith, Dave Pollard, Cormac Goga, Murphy Jr., Luis Gutierrez and his foot note (all asterisked the list below). Please feed us any pertinent or polished pearls you unearth for Gaia’s health!
