ecosophia: JMG in Archdruidical robes (Archdruid)
Bright gods. One of my readers just dropped me an email to let me know that the Guggenheim will open an exhibition on June 30 on the Salons de la Rose+Croix of Josephin Peladan, the astonishing 19th century French decadent, magus, and art critic, whose writings -- for all his posturing, political incorrectness, and other irritating features -- taught me a huge amount about how to be an operative mage in a modern society.

Josephin Peladan

Yeah, that's him. He didn't inspire my beard -- I grew it before I heard of him -- but his style was as outlandish in his time as my beard and ponytail are in our post-hippie era.

The detail that matters here is that by the 30th, I'll be a single three hour train ride from the Guggenheim...

Other details on the exhibition can be found here.
