Escape Into Chris

The Musician by Fred Aris (1972)

A long, wintry six months has passed since EIL and Blog of Innocence's founder, Chris Al-Aswad, left life behind and stepped into the world of the Spirit. In addition to countless unforgettable memories, Chris also left us with dozens of journals brimming with his deepest thoughts and philosophical ponderings of existence on planet earth. Recently, my Father and I began exploring them in depth, discovering incredible, illuminated passages rife with prophetic, provocative insights and brutal honesty. While the quest to fill the space that Chris’ parting left in us will continue for our lifetimes, we’ve found solace and uplift in the notion of sharing these with the people Chris cared for most, his friends in the EIL community. Clearly, the spirit of Chris lives on in them, as well as in the eternal flow of the creative life-force, and so he would surely approve. We will start by posting one a week and are open and eager to hearing your feedback.

My son chose to leave this world last June, so I feel a sad kinship with Chris's loved ones.

His struggle seems so obvious to me. His heroism as well.

I wish there was a way to help our most sensitive souls to stay alive.

Blessings to you who loved Chris so much.

Thank you Sister Wolf,

Chris was the most sensitive soul I had ever met. His wish was to let people learn from his adolescent mistakes as well as his achievements with his maturity and art website.

Thank you:)
