Volume 24: December, 2007Hello everyone!
Volume 24 of The Edge of Propinquity has been published! December, the heart of winter, is often the darkest time of year for people to bear - metaphorically and physically. For those who dwell at the edge of propinquity it is no different. This month, to end out Year Two: Consequences, we have effort in vain, a pyrrhic victory, peace at a cost, a final showdown and a dearest wish granted. None of which is as good or as bad as it seems. In some cases, it is worse. Here, we close the year with the lesson learned that consequences for actions - intended or not - are felt long after the fact.

Luminations - An Accounting by Rick Silva AKA shaharazad
