In Whitley’s profound new journal, he talks about a recent trip when “I felt that I had to get to Marathon, Texas, and that I was behind schedule?We went racing down the dark, empty highway at speeds sometimes far in excess of my usual sedate pace. I was literally frantic to get to the Gage Hotel” for a meeting with the grays. He writes, “I have been living and breathing the dark side for quite a time…I have been trying to understand how something that has contributed such immense knowledge and joy to my life could even have a side as dark as I know it to be. But then again, look at us: the same species that accepted the divinity of Christ also tortured him to death; the same nation that birthed Bach and Mozart and Beethoven, Goethe and Mann, gassed the Jews.”
