I think the problem with Bjorn is that he has forgotten that theosophists are
human, not mythical beings who sit learning chelaship. And he really does
not understand Americans. He can't unless he's lived here long enough.
A couple of years ago a young (possibly, because I am now at the age when

of Europe for that matter.
We are a lot feistier and some of us, well, we do get a little carried away

bland as white sauce. As it is, I spend most of my writing time answering
friend Alex's many posts.
