Our Hidden Galaxette

Step into the pages of this profound tome, where hymns of awe-inspiring devotion to "nobler geometries" coalesce with impassioned laments against the hollow emptiness of modern society. Heartfelt letters are penned within these verses to kindred souls caught in the constant whirlwind of madness. At the same time, sad reflections reveal the macabre sight of lichens feasting upon regal purple robes. In this lyrical sanctuary, the paths of Teilhard de Chardin and Saint Genet intertwine, their encounter defying conventional understanding. While embracing Genet as the advocate of the devil's domain, Chardin yearns to become his disciple, forging an unconventional bond in the realm of Christian literature. Here, the grandiose pronouncements of Blay are absent, as are the mystical raptures of St. John of the Cross and the pastoral odes of Gerard Manley Hopkins. Instead, a quivering lyricism, wholly unique, pulses through the pages, inviting you to immerse yourself in an unparalleled spiritual experience.


Prepare to embark on a captivating journey through the pages of Somewhen, a lyrical masterpiece that resounds with a resolute hymn of adoration for the ever-living God. With unflinching honesty, this remarkable book peels back the layers of pharisaical clericalism that can often lurk within cloistered walls. Yet, it goes beyond mere critique, discovering profound spiritual significance amidst the barren cityscape of a world consumed by secularization. It offers solace in human desolation, assuring readers that even when God appears dormant, He is ever-vigilant. With each page turn, Somewhen unveils a needlework of faith, resilience, and unwavering devotion, inviting you to explore the intertwining realms of divine grace and human experience. This extraordinary work will leave an indelible imprint upon your soul, rekindling a flickering flame of hope in the most unlikely places.
