Happy solstice to all readers, whether summer or winter! I hope 2013 has treated you well, or if it hasn’t, that you are climbing back towards a better place. I’d like to thank each and every one of you Grailers out there for your ongoing help, support and patronage over the past year, and wish you a safe and happy holiday period!
As internet traffic tends to drop off significantly during this time of year, we here at the Daily Grail tend to take some time away from the keyboard to recharge our batteries, so you’ll find that posts will be sparse for the next week or two (you may have noticed it already happening, as I’m spending some time with my family this week). We’ll be back soon enough though, so check in occasionally from a week or so and you’ll soon find us cranking things up as we move into 2014. In the meantime, feel free to continue discussing Grail topics in the comments section or on your personal blog – I’m sure there will still be enough readers around to keep the discussion flowing!
If you’ve enjoyed The Daily Grail over the past year (or 15) and are keen to see it continue into the future, please note that purchasing books from Daily Grail Publishing is a good way to lend some support. Not only do you get some fascinating reading material absolutely full of Graily goodness, but each sale helps keep this site running and also supports the various authors and researchers whose work is featured in each. Here’s a quick reminder of our catalogue, starting with stand-alone books on topics from shamanism to UFOs, lucid dreaming and the afterlife:

Or, if you’ve been entertained and/or educated by The Daily Grail over the course of the year but don’t need any of our books, we do welcome support via a ‘voluntary subscription’ (a donation by any other name – PayPal won’t let me use the ‘Donate’ option, so ‘Subscription’ it is for now). Simply choose the ‘subscription’ level that matches the value you think you got out of the site in the past 12 months of posts! You can contribute via PayPal or credit card using the button below – we thank you sincerely for your support:
In the New Year I’m hoping to update the look and feel of the site, making it more modern (e.g. better compatibility with mobile devices) and also ramping up the amount of content on the site to give you even more daily reading on these fascinating topics.
For now though, happy holidays to you all, and best wishes for a truly outstanding 2014!
