I spent a wonderful gifted day with Maija at MIT one weekend in 1970. All I remember is "Love the One You're With".

Thank you so for your sweet, dignified and humble offering of a not-an-obituary for Maija. The only one the internet has to offer, so far. And such a balm to my heart as I troll for news, evidence, memories and other clues in this shocking loss of her corporeal presence. I am so glad to hear from someone who knew her when she was young! She was my dear, dear friend in Western Massachusetts nearly three decades ago now, made remote by my move away to California. I remember well that same Angel message you referenced about "there will be a time to go home," and I remember even then the quick intake of breath as I said "no, no, not yet, I will not be the same without her..." I always saw the messages as being first and foremost for her, as she dutifully rose in the pre-dawn hours to channel them for us as well. She has left us with such a legacy, enough for twenty lifetimes.

I made a memorial site for her, if you feel like visiting: https://www.gatheringus.com/memorial/maija-ingrida-meijers/7271

    Starting with an appearance on a WBZ public access program in 1972, I've been on local and national TV numerous times, mostly as a game show contestant (I appeared on the game shows Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Scrabble , Win Ben Stein's Money and Merv Griffin's Crosswords) and as an author. I was also on the Computer Chronicles for years. Here are my journal entries for three of my game show appearances: Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Merv Griffin's Crosswords

Favorite Movies

  • My all-time favorite movie:
    Groundhog Day. I have created a fan site that is universally acknowledged to be the best on the Internet dedicated to this work of art.

    All the rest of my favorite movies (Deadline USA, The Paper, CitizenKane) are Journalism movies.
