First anniversary!

Yes, it's been a full year now that the Montreal Theosophy Project has been blogging on a regular weekly basis. In this past year we've tried to add our own humble contribution to the vibrant theosophical internet activity that is going on and we've announced a few public lectures which have had a nice response, thank you. We started off trying to convey the diversity and quality of the sizeable legacy of classic theosophical texts and writers with both short-length posts and longer ones. Along the way, we added a book review feature to highlight important and relevant works of theosophical interest. We hope to continue to develop and expand in quality and diversity over the next year. Much thanks to all who have visited our modest cyberspace portal.

That we all labor together transmitting the same charge and succession,
We few equals indifferent of lands, indifferent of times,
We, enclosers of all continents, all castes, allowers of all theologies,
Compassionaters, perceivers, rapport of men,
We walk silent among disputes and assertions, but reject not the disputers: nor anything that is asserted,
We hear the bawling and din, we are reach'd at by divisions, jealousies, recriminations on every side,
They close peremptorily upon us to surround us, my comrade,
Yet we walk unheld, free, the whole earth over, journeying up and down till we make our ineffaceable mark upon time and the diverse eras,
Till we saturate time and eras, that the men and women of races, ages to come, may prove brethren and lovers as we are. 
 — (Walt Whitman, To him that was Crucified, Leaves of Grass, 397)
