It isn't exactly a shroud that Penelope in the Homeric epics is weaving, even though that's what she says it is because that is all that the people can see and hear repeated as rumor--that the lineage is dead. And even in our own Moment many have believed it. The Grateful Dead proves the lineage has been wildly alive our whole lives. John Mayer, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann joined together that lineage for a big reason. This is the wild cosmic weave behind what was seen, even as everyone knew something phenomenal was happening. This is the lineage back, the 'Until Shiloh Comes' Cosmic Flow Tapestry by Shiloh Richter first published in 2018 amidst an unrealized crisis as people accepted hate, lies, and slurs as the norm and propagated them themselves, the press benefitting right along with spreading rumor as headline, while Hermes was on the cosmic run to 710 Ashbury St. where he picked up again to transform everything. This is the phenomenal weave of John Mayer and Dead and Company.
It is an interweaving "tapestry" and mosaic of Hermes footsteps, of lived extraordinary experience beginning in Spring 2010 in writing to John Mayer and a literary, musical, and artistic endeavor that was revealing itself in all the wonder of what was happening.
It is overall work of the interconnected miracles and unfoldings that have bloomed from 2010 to publishing in September 2018 . . . and what is unfolding now before our eyes as the old structures, what Homer meant, lose their hold, but scream morbidly as it happens.
The design is in "tapestry" or scroll layout to show the interconnectedness and cosmic picture of cultural happenings that are beyond imagination, showing a cosmic weave of all of our lives that wouldn't seem possible in the light of day to line up so beyond perfect. For Shiloh, it started out with a name she knew was in the Hebrew bible.
And because there is always a darkness that brings about the extremely beautiful, the catalyst to refine ourselves and find all the path to freedoms, what is intended in the blooming of a cosmos, even in the natural spirit of America, this work also includes details of Taylor Swift's lies of "boyfriends," intellectual property, words, and identities that she continually replicated as her own, plagiarized, and marketed as herself, based solely on money and fame, even hiding the real reasons she was rerecording the already replicated material and reselling it to the public as her own again in a line of continuous lies and hidden maneuvers--because it never for a moment ever belonged to her. It is others' lives, works, and words, their very living breath she wanted desperately to sell as herself. Even those words she stole: "It was never mine" to continue a false reality of making herself a part of a relationship with John Mayer. Even this tapestry was replicated as "her" song and video "ME!" It's deeply insidious, as the patterns of narcissistic disorder are now understood and shown to be. But Homer sang about it, too, nearly 3000 years ago. And that's where the Grateful Dead stepped in. And that's where this literary journal also began. And where it all came together in perfect detail and alignment.
This artwork was published with the books (separately)Coyote Weaves a Song: A Mythological Song from the Beginning of Time Volumes I & II, which has a great deal to do with the formation of Dead and Company, and My Love Affair with Moonbeam: 10+ Years of Wonder, Bursting Love & Creativity which is the vibrant creation and love of every moment in writing to John Mayer.

The title of the artwork is from Jacob's prophecy in the Hebrew bible in Genesis 49:10: "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his [and her] feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him [and her] shall the gathering of the people be." (KJV) "Shiloh" in one sense means "Place of Peace," the internal space and the Pure Land created, and is at the center bobbin of the Homeric epics. Thus, mind-blowingly, Homer was addressing the huge shift in culture caused by the loss of the feminine and the sense of Being.
Penelope’s completed tapestry is an of-the-essence message, a timely arrival of the Odyssey and the overlooked, timeless and immense power of the vast and mightily moving River of golden Song that reveals an epiphany across millennia to this very moment about true identities, our InnerBeings that are not defined by the acculturated boundaries. It does this in more profound ways than anyone could have imagined besides the creators of the art: those gorgeous “perpetrators” of culture and the divine themselves, all at once loved and often morbidly shut off. As one will see in this artistic and feminine message, the movements and alterations, like those of Hermes in the Homeric "Hymn to Hermes," the very skeleton key left by Homer in verse, the flipping and breaking open of worlds and the intense acts of creation are necessary at the toppling, beginnings, and nurturing of new worlds—and the identities astounding.
That's what Dead and Company were doing: breaking back open the sacred.
Penelope creates the tapestry for the lineage of those who loved the female line of Hermes, and for the return of his direct descendants, what is shown in Coyote Weaves a Song; She makes the tapestry for Odysseus’s father, Laërtes, the former king upon the return of the king who restores the line; This tapestry is for Laërtes: Bob Weir and the Grateful Dead, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Jerry Garcia and all the members living and passed, and for the tribe of like-Beings who urged and encouraged Shiloh to remember and to write.
It is the weir where the Flow breeches its ancient barrier and the Song is broken open. How wild then that Shiloh's name and John's form the very waterfall of the waters of Siloam in Jerusalem that Jesus spoke of himself, the flow of the healing song and the clay to heal the "blindness."
The tapestry is the eternal weave shown in the books Coyote Weavesa Song: A Mythological Song from the Beginning of Time, Volumes I and II and My Love Affair with Moonbeam: Ten + Years of Wonder, Bursting Love and Creativity.
