How strange and yet how lovely this:
when we have shed the weary husk,
to find a long occluded bliss
which dawns where mortals see but dusk.

Bob Gallagher was one of the most remarkable people I ever met. A gifted poet, philosopher, musician, juggler and actor, he was the author of an experimental novel, a meta-memoir, numerous poems, plays, a conversant in two threads on this website ( as well as many philosophical treatises and tracts. He had numerous friends all over the world who remember him for his blinding intelligence, sparkling wit and incredible graciousness. Bob passed away on Monday, August 7th, after a brief illness.
