STEVEN SOHLSTROM: AUTHOR, FILMMAKER, DIAGNOSED WITH BRAIN TUMOR REQUIRING IMMEDIATE SURGERY

  Hi everyone. An unexpected CAT scan revealed a brain tumor ,yesterday, large enough to warrant immediate surgery (next wednesday). I feel in good, hands and I am not scared, but know there will be side effects warranting a few weeks of post-op therapy…risk of stroke, etc… Im concerned about it effecting my writing ability ,of course, because Iam having trouble hitting keystrokes….slicing a chunck of my brain out in that center of concentration center propabably won’t help. I am in good spirits….maybe it all hasn’t hit me yet… I was told to apply for Social Security and advised that I shouldn’t plan on any sailing quite soon. That about made me cry. The technical description of the tumor made made evident of the risks in removing it…and had an afternoon meeting with a bright young speech pathologist who was very reassuring that I was coming a from a great starting place in respect to articulation………..I studied the MRI’s again just now….how the heck are they going to get that safely away from my brain and out of my skull? I have no idea how I felt no symptoms. At least I’ll finally get a new haircut. MORE UPDATES AND CORRESPONDENCE CAN BE FOUND ON MY PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE…. Images forthcoming:   Speech adversely affected. I am improving daily since the second surgery (yesterday…when a late ER visit prompted immediate surgery…where excess blood removed) Difficulty was expected with speech. I guess its the medication. I anticapate I full recovery. Its called something like Aphasia. Mayo Clinic definition : Aphasia is a condition that robs you of the ability to communicate. It can affect your ability to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written. Aphasia typically occurs suddenly after a stroke or a head injury. I am convinced that the medication to prevent the brain from swelling was causing this. The surgeons and the nursing staff are taking excellent care of me…and I am grateful for them. I can’t thank them enough for being patient with me.   “SHIPWRECK STEW” ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE PAPER COLLECTOR GALLERY IN DOWNTOWN ST.CLOUD IN PAPERBACK! eBook Shipwreck Stew Steven Sohlstrom $2.99

EOF / UPDATED CONTENT / Greetings Europe, from the Netherlands / EPISODE 3 NOW IN: Grooming, Emotional Entrapment and Fraud, is it OK Sometimes? / Sacred Radio PODCAST LINKS now in!

Is this finally the begining of the end for the twisted and manipulative cult, Jessica Schab and Diego Fontanive’s EOF? I am going to summarize briefly some of the topics I plan to discuss on the radio program and why this is such an important story. I encourage everyone who has a stake in this to listen, particularly eof members who may want to stop endorsing the reckless activities of Jessica and Diego who use fear as a form of control and even censorship (they disguise their censorship attempts with an interesting term= cyber bullying) Thank you to everyone for the overwhelming level of support and empathy for our story now coming from around the world. With typical irony, our story will be broadcast on Valentine’s Day, 2016. It is certain to be a controversial and heart-wrenching program. See the latest: Clip from the third live broadcast and recent statement by Steven from 4.12.16 and part of my reaction to Jessica’s address at the faithtofaithless conference http://flightflash.com/2009/11/09/chasing-unicorns-and-the-mental-health-profession/ The eof became a bit riled up when they heard I would be doing this interview and understandably so. They do not want our voice to be heard. I’ve predicted all along that the story of what they did to Melissa and I would rattle the foundation of the eof to rubble. To that end, I produced a documentary about it. Of course the great irony of this, is that for Melissa’s sake, I hoped my film would never see the light of day! It is certainly not an attack on her, but important to tell the truth, and reveal their very intentional and brutal result…my physical abuse…her emotional and financial ruin, and the continuing exploitation of my fiance. Trying my best to delicately encourage her to come back home (and before she finally loses everything), they viciously turned her into a weapon against me with truly horrific result. I love and forgive her for what happened and know she is not to blame. I don’t insist on calling her my fiance because I’m deluded or crazy…it is a show of resistance for what they stole of her dignity by relentlessly giving her no choice in the matter of our togetherness. I was an eyewitness and that is an absolute and very despicable fact. I fight this for her. That is an energy I will hold onto for her until she has the energy to fight them again on her own. This is more than just a lovestory. None of this happened over night and continues to evolve in its mystery and complexity. Everything I’ve learned little by little about the eof and their exploitation of Melissa completely reinforces the information in my film. I’d certainly be willing to bet there will be one person in Europe who will be banned by the eof from listening to this very important broadcast and that is Melissa herself. It is still a huge mystery if she understands what is really going on because she appears to be … Continue reading

Super Moon Blushes Over Indigo Lake

I remember seeing my first “Blood Moon” unexpectedly while handing out burritos from the drive thru window while I was working perhaps 15 years ago. A total eclipse also took my friends and I by surprise on the rim of the Grand Canyon as we were taking a walk in June 1992. “Umm…why’s is it so dark all of the sudden? I could have sworn we just had a full moon.” I love the Laotian traditional explanation for an eclipse as well…the moon was carried off on the back of a turtle. This is my first attempt to photograph an eclipse…I fascinated friends almost a year ago by punching a hole in a piece of paper to project a solar eclipse onto the wall. “Is that for real?” They had to take my word for it because no one wanted to stare into the sun. The last comparable lunar eclipse was in 1982.
