Somehow, it seems important at this point to post regular ufo updates of one kind or another. For example, today Steve Beckow put together and uploaded a compendium of recent ufo fleet videos going back in time. Plus I just noticed that Lee Speigel of “weird news” on huff post has a new story as well.
Why do I sense its importance? Is it because “disclosure” is near? I have no idea. Sure would be nice, given how we continue to forget our interconnectedness with the living cosmos and ruin the only home (we think) we have ever known. Perhaps it’s just for that reason: to remind us to look up at the sky. Let go of moving stuff around for a minute or two and simply gaze into the vast unknown. It tends to put “things” in perspective when we get even a glimmer of the mysterious, infinite awareness within which all our petty concerns are held in love.

Here’s a collection of images that Leslie Kean put together for The Huffington Post on Aug. 23, 2010, to promote the publication of her book:
