Take care,

John DeSantis

These are the 3 Index pages on my Theosophical

This is "A place for Theosophists to work
together to create a Movie about JESUS":

And this is the link to what I very personally

project for all of humanity -- one that I have

envisioned myself for the last 26 years and
am trying hard to get going:
