Goodbye, Richard

     We recently lost a lightworker brother from Dove Creek, Colo. Richard Gregory made his transition the evening of Jan. 21, 2002. He had been ill and was hospitalized just a couple of days before his passing. According to his closest friends, Richard was peaceful and without pain at the end.

     Richard was born on Feb. 4, 1933. He would have been 70 years old. I met Richard Gregory in July 1984 at my first UFO conference in Laramie, Wyo. He was one of the people who joined us briefly at the Pat McGuire ranch, 30 miles north of Laramie, late at night and left an impression on me. I was with two friends, as well as my two young sons (who were asleep in the car), and I believe I had a significant UFO encounter at the ranch later that night.

     Richard's music inspired me greatly. During the summer of 1985, he stopped to visit my husband and me in Delta, Colo., and entertained us for more than an hour with his guitar singing and playing, which I recorded for myself. Although he wasn't blessed with the finest singing voice I've ever heard, Richard was a true musician and loved singing and sharing metaphysical wisdom through his sons, many of which he composed himself.

     He was married for several years to Kanai Callow, who now resides in Bellingham, Wash. When they were together, at least in the early years, the two of them recorded music together, and I feel fortunate to still have their tapes. They called their vocal duo "Karma." Kanai had an extremely lovely singing voice, I recall.

     After 10 years of not hearing from either of them, I was overjoyed when, a little over a year ago, Kanai contacted me from Washington state, and a short while later I heard again from Richard. The two were then separated, but Richard sent letters and tapes from Dove Creek, and was especially happy to have rediscovered The Star Beacon. He bought gift subscriptions for other lightworkers he knew. He had been looking forward to attending his first Love and Light Conference, until it got cancelled last summer.

     Richard big on "synchronicities." He discussed the subject a lot in his letter-tapes.

     A synchronicity occurred the evening of his passing. Because I've been so busy, I hadn't touched my piano at home in well over a month, and I decided on the evening of Jan. 21 that I was going to sit down and play, even though I had other things I felt were more important to do. I sat down at my piano and felt the urge to play some of Richard's songs, which many years ago I had arranged into piano pieces.

     To my amazement, the "muse" was still with me and I played my piano flawlessly for close to an hour, even though I hadn't touched the keys in weeks! And Richard went through my mind as I played. I thought about how his music had touched me at a crucial time in my spiritual development, and I wondered why we hadn't heard anything from him lately. It was during the time I was playing the piano and thinking about Richard that he transitioned.

     He often referred to himself as an "ET Cowboy," and his lifestyle was simple. He was content to do without many of the material conveniences in life, including electricity.

     In tribute to Richard, I would like to include one of his songs:

The Meaning Of It All

     by Richard Gregory

     Some people never know
     Just what love is.
     And others never know
     Just what they've missed.
     But as for myself I know
     Someday I'll find
     The meaning of it all,
     The meaning of it all.

     Some people never find
     The fascination
     Of knowing life and love
     Are just illusion,
     But although I know,
     It really doesn't matter,
     I'd do it all again,
     I'll do it all again.

     There are things we never hear,
     And there are things we never see.
     All these things we hold so dear
     Will disappear... just wait and see.

     And yet we try
     With all that's in us
     To understand
     If there's a purpose

     And as for myself I know
     Someday I'll find
     The meaning of it all,
     The meaning of it all.
     Yes, as for myself I know
     Someday I'll find
     The meaning of it all,
     The meaning of it all.

     Farewell, Richard. I hope that you have by now found the meaning of it all.

     Dr. Boylan comments: "There are more, but that should give you a start. Some will notice 'major figures' in ufology which I have left off. That was not accidental. I know who the disinformers and Cabal assets are. The above list does not mean that I agree with everything every one of them says, but their hearts are in the right place, and they are reasonably informed."

     Dr. Boylan's e-mail address is

Farewell, Cochetopa

     Once again I am "in transition" career wise. The San Luis "Mysterious" Valley of southern Colorado was home to The Cochetopa Weekly Shopper from Aug. 7 through Dec. 18, 2002. There are a lot of reasons why the paper came to an end, which I won't go into here.

     On the bright side, I am ecstatic to be back home in Paonia, Colo., where I feel I belong. I am back in the North Fork Valley and thrilled to have more time to spend on The Star Beacon, and to finish my novel, and to catch up on correspondence.

     This month I am opening Earth Star Secretarial in downtown Paonia, in the office of lightworker and longtime friend Honey Lee (Peggy) French. Peggy is an accountant who spreads the Light while doing income taxes. I will be doing the work I love best - word processing, publishing, data entry, Web site design and maintenance, and maybe some computer consulting. My Web site for the new business is at
