"and also according to legend
these reincarnated Atlantean High Priests and Priestesses
are being born in -- or irresistably drawn to
for one reason or another
the once fair land of California

to be given a second karmic chance
to warn those who walk upon the uneasy ground
where San Andreas lies at fault
.. but blameless" Page 692

Linda looks to heaven for answers while recalling what her Avatar said about Altar.

"Christ, look -- level with me now
I wrote a poem about you once, on Easter
when I was in Protestant Sunday school
I know it was a little corny, but I was only twelve
and I hadn't sopped up much alchemy yet .. you know ?" Page 699

Canto Seventeen has Linda wallowing in regret. It tries to be sad, but it is actually quite humorous, as Linda seeks answers to her current dark hour without her Twin. She prays to Jesus for answers. It's too long to reproduce in its entirety, but it was so very enLIGHTening to read.

"you can tell by my poem
the one I wrote when I was twelve
that I like you

I mean, I love you
whether you are ordinary or magic, you see ?

yes, ordinary -- or magic
you are, somehow, very special to me
so you can tell it to me like it is
not as Christ -- but as Jesus, the man

it won't make any difference in the way I feel about you
whatever you tell me -- even if you confess that Easter was never real
it won't make any difference in the way I feel
because love is trust, and .. oh ! love is understanding
and forgiving someone's faults and mistakes
when they hurt or disappoint you
with clumsy clay feet" Page 700

Linda's Gooober had once made a check out to her for One Thousand Kisses. In Canto Seventeen, she finally swallowed her pride and sent him a check for One Thousand Miracles. He returned it to her in the mail--unendorsed--with not even so much as a letter.

"you've even caused me to lose my faith in astrology
and that's really hitting below the belt
since I've always felt that astrology holds all the answers
or most of them .. the important ones

how could you smash me like this ?
by causing me to lose faith in astrology" Page 697

Do you think he really did that? Sent it back? Maybe that's a dumb question...I don't know!

Linda also did and said things she didn't mean (out of anger and/or jealousy).

Btw, I think this was really cruel of him, to send her that check back without a word. I think if I'd be in her place, it would make me think he never really loved me. I'd probably write him off at that point. But I can't really judge others' relationships, I'm sure they each had their own good reasons for their actions. And that she still didn't lose her faith in him re. being her twin soul after that, that means she really believed that - her faith was extremely strong.
But I can't help but be curious about this R. Brewer and his true feelings. All we see in Linda's books is her own point of view of him, him in relation to her, but we don't REALLY know what he was really like. I got a somewhat blurred perception of him, he remains a bit mysterious to me. What do you think?

That is heart-breaking! He sent it back.....*sighs*

As much as we love Linda, I think we forget that she was probably not an easy person to have a relationship with, so we really shouldn't judge him. Still...it's so sad.

I wish they could have worked things out. I think about him sometimes and I truly wonder what happened to him...where he is now in his life, what he thinks of Gooberz, etc. I really want some info. on him!!

Me too, I'd really like to know. I did some resarch on the net, but I didn't come up with anything. Does anyone know what he's doing now?

But I think if you truly love someone, it doesn't matter if he's "impossible" to live with. You accept the one you love with all his faults. I think that is what true love is, it overcomes all boundaries and it is unconditional. If you love someone, but you leave him because he's impossible to live with, you didn't love him that much after all. That's why I'm wondering about R.B.'s true feelings. But there's always a possibility that they couldn't work through their (obviously difficult) karma in this lifetime and had to leave it for the next one. If this is the case, I'm sure they'll be together again (or they already are... )

I don't know if this is correct information, but someone said that he's married to the Scorpio woman and he lives very privately. He will not comment on his relationship with Linda.
-Even though, we cannot judge another couples relationship, even when it burns with the question, why?. :sigh:

-Sometimes I wonder if he's seen this site. I wouldn't be surpised!

Sometimes you Love someone but just can't be with that person.

Yes I guess Randall is right. I think this was/is probably the case with Linda and Robert. I don't want to believe he left her because she was impossible to live with - that would mean he didn't really love her - but because they just couldn't find a way to be together in this lifetime.

Well, I'm not trying to judge R.B., I'd just like to know. Wouldn't we all, right? But something tells me he couldn't handle his karma with Linda and settled for someone calmer and more secure, "the tall sure Scorpio", who probably wasn't such "high maintenance", so he'd have more personal space to work through his own issues.

Again: I'm not judging, just speculating, don't get me wrong

Oh, Morgana, I didnīt mean you in particular!! I just meant it in a general sense....more to myself, actually. I need to remind myself sometimes.

Hey Goober, I know you didn't mean me!

I just like to further explain myself (rather talking to myself too ) because people often misunderstand me, but I really didn't think that you meant me in particular And you only told the truth: we can't judge other people
