Alice [May. 26th, 2008|10:07 am]
Tony Grist
Alice came by for lunch- on her way home from doing a Sweat Lodge (research for her book) in the Lake District- and we had a lovely afternoon of  psychometry. She has the gift. I had her do a reading of the pen knife I inherited from my father (her grandfather)- and she told me things about him- about his inner life- which ring true and which make me wish I'd made a connection with the person he really was while he was still around. He could be great fun- and I never saw that in him- except perhaps in my far childhood. I wonder now why we were so guarded around one another when we are- actually- so very much alike. Maybe it had something to do with him having such a formal relationship with his own father- which meant that the only model of fatherhood he had was looming, booming  patriarchy- and since that wasn't really who he was he opted out and went to dig the garden instead.  

I have the gift too- though I'm very "aw shucks" about it. I read Alice's bracelet and got a set of images and impressions- at least two of which were right on the money. 

I had her read the old rings I bought off eBay. they were sold as "Roman"- though this probably only means they werre found by metal detectorists. She got bad vibes off one of them. She said the guy who'd worn it as a pinkie ring was a nast, abusive paedophile. Ailz promptly stuck it in a wooden goblet to contain the energy. Others had belonged to a peasant woman living in the Mediterranean hills and a not very successful flautist. The one i wear on a chain round my neck- the one I have attachment to-  belonged to a boy sailor who drowned at sea; it had originally been his mother's. "He wishes he could have had a proper burial," said Alice. 

She did Ailz a tarot reading. Grungey times ahead. Well, that's no big surprise.....

I took some pictures. She probably won't like them. The best of them catch who she is when she isn't thinking about the camera.

I just want to put it on record that I'm very proud of her. And love her very much.

You are right I don't like all of them, the first one I look strangely drunken and smug!!! Never mind, you made up for it with your final comments. I love you too Dad. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PS Thanks 2 u both for a really great afternoon.

Re: Alice

The first is the one I like least. You're acting up a bit for the camera. But it registers your intelligence, I think.

The other two I'm really pleased with.

It was lovely to have you here.

Now go write up your sweat lodge experience. I'm impatient to read what you've got to say.

She's lovely and not just in the sense of physical beauty. It takes a proud and loving parent to capture the inner stuff like this.

Thanks. I'm slightly in awe of the remarkable woman she's become.

As her stepmother can I say that she's always been remarkable, but the woman she's become is kind, thoughtful, intelligent oh and all the other things that you wish for them. She adds to the lives she touches. I'm just glad I was smart enough to marry her dad & get to know her. Love you too Al,

She is very beautiful. Her gracious note/comment on your LJ was also thoughtful of her.
Of course you are proud!

"Of course you are proud!"

Very much so.

How fascinating! Quite frightening though.

She is very exotic!

Frightening- You mean the psychometry? I hadn't thought of it that way. The dead can't hurt us- poor things. :)

Yeah she looks good in these pictures- the second and third especially, though I like the knowing look in the first too.

I'm also keen to hear about the sweat lodge.

Al has done modelling and knows how to confront the camera. Therefore you've got to catch her off-guard.
