There is magick in many places. This is about the search for magick.  Magick is the place between universes: it is the path for sound and light,.. and other ... but no limits.. 

explore.. and things will magickally evolve. 


Much of my most recent content has been put on YouTube. I have been making short videos with the still images I take


YouTube stopped supporting IE Explorer! I have just changed the code I use to embed movies in my site and I think its working again. I may not have changed all the code on every page!

I have made a newpage with all my YouTube movies so far, (some 41! I have been busy!) embedded. The movies seem to to play in Firefox, GoogleChrome, Safari,  and Internet Explorer. Have fun! 

The new movie page is: Hibla.com Joseph O'Kelly's movies on YouTube

Step through the doorway; but which? The bricked-up, the subterranean, or the closed? With magick they all open. 

This wall is stone and brick. The brick is in part Roman, recycled into a later wall. The stones are more difficult to date.

Hibla is the largest cut architectural stone in the world. It is near Baalbek, Lebanon: one of the most ancient  and cultured settlements in the world.

Is there anyone living in Baalbek who wants to update me?
