In 2008 Fraser Clark announced that he had inoperable liver cancer and a farewell Megatripolis was held on 13 November.
He passed away on Wednesday, January 21, 2009.
He was such a sweet spirit and touched many people that, like myself, never met him. Two months ago he was given 6 - 12 months to live and went sooner than expected. I experienced a very similar situation. My sister also had liver cancer and I went with her and heard her doctor tell her that she had 6 months to live, yet 6 weeks later she was gone. When I heard "6 months" I didn't imagine it would be earlier than that. Fraser's family and dear friends may have thought about it that way, too.
Fraser was publisher of the Encyclopedia Psychedelica and Evolution and UP!, a weekly ezine newsletter that I've quoted here through the years. And there was also Megatripolis.
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
