Well fuck, i completely missed the news. RIP Ann Shulgin

I cant believe i didnt see the news until now, i have just been way too self absorbed in my own personal issues this year, i havent spent much time looking outward until recently.

Words cannot even begin to express the loss of the last Shulgin mind to the community, even if she wasnt very active in recent years. Those that know me, know i always have words, lots of them... so that says how profound that loss is!

I would assume most in this sub will have heard the names, maybe even read a passage from PiHKAL or TiHKAL, but if you never had the occasion to see them at a lecture, or hear them speak at an interview, or even be extremely fortunate enough to have spoken personally with either Ann or Sasha.. i encourage you to do so now, (except the speaking obviously) as you dont know what you missed. The passion and love from them both.. and the humor.. gosh they could make a room of stiff people laugh with almost no effort, lol. I cant even... the emotions right now just thinking back... its hard to even write this. I will always cherrish the few occasions i was able to see them speak, and the brief chance to speak with, and impress upon them my gratitude for the groundwork they laid for what has now become the psychedelic revolution.

So, for the love of the molecule, dig up some old recordings of interviews or lectures, and take a moment to really enjoy the gifts they gave to the entire world. The next time you roll, trip, or flip, dedicate it to both of these pioneers, that blazed the trail that lead you to the point where you are today.

If any one wants to read through notes and see some of Shulgin's thoughts and experiments and fun times with Ann, take a gander at some of these references.
