rawilson.com is back. FNORD on!

Μετά από μια παρατεταμένη περίοδο στασιμότητας το site του Bob επιστρέφει. Η κόρη του Christina έχει αναλάβει πλέον τον όγκο του έργου του, την ταξινόμηση του, την συνέχιση της έκδοσης των βιβλίων του και γιατί όχι, την έκδοση κάποιων καινούργιων...
Στα σημαντικά στοιχεία είναι το RAW Bookstore με όλα τα βιβλία του Μπομπ και η ανακοίνωση της Christine πως θα ακολουθήσουν ebay auctions με κάποια προσωπικά αντικείμενα του Bob με σκοπό να πληρωθεί ένα χρέος που άφησε ο τελυταίος όταν άφησε την πραγματικότητα μας (είχε σταματήσει να πληρώνει φόρους στο αμερικανικό κράτος εδώ και πολλά χρόνια, ή τουλάχιστον έτσι θυμάμαι να έχω διαβάσει, δεν ξέρω κατά πόσο ισχύει) και το οποίο έχει αναλάβει η ίδια πλέον, και απ' ότι φαίνεται σκοπεύει να το πληρώσει.
Παραθέτω το απόσπασμα που εμφανίζεται στην πρώτη σελίδα, spiral out...


A note from Bob's daughter Christina. . .
Dear Friends of RAW, as Bob wrote about my Mom, Arlen -
"You have not snared her, Scarecrow Death: She's in my pulse, my heart, my breath."
I'd have to say he hasn't left either. You see . . . he's in OUR pulse, our hearts, our breath.The past couple years have sped on by as I work to make sense of RAW's body of work, artifacts, and various loose ends. Probate is coming to a close, finally - the new website is ready to fly (thanks to Rasa at Pelorian Digital), and it's time to move forward in expanding RAW consciousness. For this I will need your help, insight, feedback and support as we create a wonderful opportunity to continue his work and mischief, with this website being a major focal point for RAW activity. Check in at the new
Blog to add your voice. Before we move on, I do want to announce that you will soon have an opportunity to have an authentic RAW Artifact, from his life, his home, his library, his love: up close and personal items as I work to raise funds to pay off his final debts. Yup, he left some. Didn't mean to, and apologized to me before skipping the event horizon. Wish I didn't have to, but it's my job to wrap up this debt, and move on so that we can actually do what he wanted. Which is to keep the lasagna flying - his work available to all who were interested, and provide some support for his son. He was never very attached to physical things, but he did get great joy from many items that came to be in his home. I want to make them available in the hopes that they will also bring you joy, and will close the door on Bob's debts. So here's your chance to have a real RAW Souvenir, to inspire your own Muse and bring RAW energy into your own space! We'll have the auction up and running before June. So thanks for being here, spread the word and we'll see you at the auction!
Love, Christina
PS: Be sure to visit my
mom's pages while you are here, and read some the words that gave such inspiration to my dad.
