Sleep Has His House

While living in Sicily a couple years back, I had the opportunity to visit the dilapidated, yet still standing, Abbey of Thelema in Cefalu. The house stands completely surrounded by trees in the shadow of a relatively new soccer (excuse me, I mean football) stadium. The murals orginally painted by Aleister Crowley, painted over by the superstitious locals, then uncovered by Kenneth Anger are still in relatively good condition. Why the house still stands is a complete mystery to me, but I’m glad and comforted by the fact that it does. I thought I’d post some pictures in case anyone else may be interested.
