This sensitive work depicts the night before the last perfect day of mid-summer in Mu, the
Motherland of man,.the night before the cataclysmic destruction of this ancient highly
evolved civilization on the day the mountains were raised.
According to tradition, a Mid-summer's Eve Festival was held to celebrate the rich harvests,
and to glorify all the highest elements in religion, art and science that were a product of
millennia of undisturbed cultural evolution.
A quote from David Hatcher Childress in his book, Lost Cities of Ancient Lemuria and the
Pacific tells us, "The whole purpose of civilization in Mukulia (Mu) was to create "Masters,"
or "Saints" as they are commonly called today. Each person studied and worked to be a

Hawaiian Islands is that I feel they are remnants of this lost continent; it is easy to feel a love
for humanity here and a love for one's self; as I am fond of saying, the journey inward is even
more important than the journey to the stars.
