New White Crow Blog

For those interested, Michael Tymn's new blog, White Crow, went live today. Mike is a well-known researcher and writer of the paranormal. Let him know if you'd like to subscribe.
"Here you will meet philosophers and visionaries, painters and poets, novelists and psychologists, whose vitality and insight spill generously across the centuries. Seek and you will find, and when you find, celebrate. Discovery is for the keen-eyed and the open-hearted, and the adventure continues."
The term"white crow" is from a comment of the great Harvard psychologist, William James — who was also one of the founding members of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR) — to a skeptic's doubt about the medium, Lenora Piper (b. 1859):
"To upset the conclusion that all crows are black, there is no need to seek demonstration that no crows are black; it is sufficient to produce one white crow; a single one is sufficient."
Michael shared that he will be discussing The Risen in either his second or third blog. He currently plans to post a new blog every two weeks or so.
