It was barely over a year ago that i visited salvation mountain for the first time. After seeing it and hearing about it over the years it was surreal to set foot onto/into this place that seemed like the soil it lay on top of was saturated with magic. I can count on a set of hands the times i’ve felt the way i did as i sauntered around this place, under and over and through and in between. While i never connected with the religious voices of this place i most certainly connected with them through other perspectives, it was not about all about god or religion..but simply about love. I know his love and wisdom will continue to live through time, as it should. “A modern day saint”, It’s heartbreaking to lose one of the good ones. Leonard Knight was loved by all that knew him, he will be missed. Rest in peace you bright heart.
