A stunning tale set in England, Paris, and Moscow, chronicling Blanch's love for an older Russian man and the passionate obsession that takes her to Siberia and beyond. “My book is not altogether autobiography, nor altogether travel or history either. You will just have to invent a new category,” Lesley Blanch wrote about Journey into the Mind’s Eye, a book that remains as singularly adventurous and intoxicating now as when it first came out in 1968. Russia seized Lesley Blanch when she was still a child. A mysterious traveler—swathed in Siberian furs, bearing Fabergé eggs and icons as gifts along with Russian fairy tales and fairy tales of Russia—came to visit her parents and left her starry-eyed. Years later the same man returned to sweep her off her feet. Her love affair with the Traveller, as she calls him, transformed her life and fueled an abiding fascination with Russia and Russian culture, one that would lead her to dingy apartments reeking of cabbage soup and piroshki on the outskirts of Paris in the 1960s, and to Siberia and beyond.

Great journalists, at one time or another, have all been characters in their own stories: people with personalities that shaped what they saw and reported, and were touched and changed by the experiences about which they wrote; and innovators who borrowed the storytelling techniques of fiction. The Beholder’s Eye showcases the very best of an increasing trend toward personal narrative: Mike Sager stalking Marlon Brando in the Tahitian jungle; J. R. Moehringer’s quest to discover the true identity of an old boxer; Bill Plaschke’s story about a woman with cerebral palsy who runs an obscure Los Angeles Dodgers Web site; Scott Anderson’s story of his lifetime of covering war after war; Harrington’s own tale of his interracial family’s struggle to persevere; and many others. Written by reporters who were willing to reveal themselves in order to bring readers insights that were deeper than supposedly objective third-person stories, their articles are an invaluable resource for aspiring journalists, students, and teachers of the craft of writing, and any reader with an appreciation for masterful storytelling.

Christopher, Julie, and Ronin monitor the tools of mind control, and brainwashing to unearth the lies and tails being told to the people of this planet in order to control and enslave them. The main purpose of this trio’s journey is to open the mind’s eye of an enslaved humanity on earth. News mediums which are used to fill the minds of the children of Mother Earth are policed by the trio to reveal nothing but the facts, no matter how unpopular and unbelievable those facts may seem. It is believable lies that are taken as true and the truths are dismissed as lies and conspiracy theories. This must be changed, this most switched, and the mind controlling poisons undone. If not Christopher, Julie, and Ronin realize this could very well be the demise of the majority of humans inhabiting planet Earth.

A passage between the stars, the moon and the thoughts caught within all of us. The different emotions we hide sometimes when left staring at the sun feeling the moon within your mind. For all the people and chances that have gone before. Of all the times we felt so much alive and the regrets we hold like the dark side of the moon. Knowing the journey will lead us within the sun; changing our views. Feeling a step within life is just a change within our minds. Now feel the journey within one mind; take the time to ponder all the thoughts and feelings felt within one sun and the mood of this life and how it can lift you higher and take you down when you lose the focus of the road that lies ahead and people who move like ghosts within your trail. Knowing one day you will unite the Sun and the Moon and find a distant peace within your heart. This may take time and Journey will have many falls. But the road is just a reflection within the memories of our minds.
