Just found this on the Seth House Project web site. Pretty cute, probably the only song 'about' Seth in existence at this time.

"Let’s Talk About Seth
Thanks to our friend Molly for creating this funny video. After a conversation about getting the word out about Seth and saying that we need to get people talking about Seth, Molly connected it with an old music video called “Let’s Talk About Sex” by Salt-N- Pepa. She spliced in a few excerpts from “The Interview with Jane & Rob” and what she came up with is a lot of fun…
Please enjoy!  And – LET’S TALK ABOUT SETH!  😀 "

Here's an update from The Seth House -- improvements to date. They're doing a fantastic job! The bay windows have been fixed, some fresh paint has been applied, water damage fixed, the bathroom is fixed up, some furniture is going in. Photos can be seen at the link below.

Hi Deb,

Thanks for posting this recent update.
I think that it would be awesome to be able to one day visit and walk through this house and sense the energy of Jane, Rob and Seth.

Thanks for the link too; the pictures are interesting.

You're welcome! I've been working on some projects with Mary Dillman this past year, and we've talked about me going out to New Haven to visit. I've been wanting to see the Yale Library Jane Roberts Collection for years, thought I could also drive out to the Seth House and see it in person. So maybe late spring or early summer I'll get a chance to do both. I also have some friends in NJ, I may as well make it a week.

Ooooh, I just had the idea that I could visit a couple of Rob and Jane's houses, maybe some other notable places from the books. Seize the day (or opportunity)!

Hi Deb,

That sounds like it would be an awesome trip. 

Along with the Yale Library and the house on Water Street in Elmira, I always thought that it would be interesting to see the "York Beach", Maine location where Jane and Rob saw their probable selves.

"When" you go (reality creation at work here :) ) I'm hoping that you'll take lot's of photo's and share them with us when you get back.

I've been redesigning/constructing a new website for the ladies who are in charge of renovating The Seth House. I'm also in the middle of doing an illustration of the house to be used on the website. A total labor of love.

I wanted to let you guys know that they have opened Rob and Jane's apartment to being rented through Airbnb. I've been so immersed in the website and illustration that I feel like I've been there already. Hopefully I can go out late spring and stay at the house, visit some friends on the East Coast.

Here's a link to their Newsletter where they tell all about the Airbnb opportunity. Once you see the photo of The Seth House, you'll understand why I'm doing an illustration, lol.

Hi Deb,

Thanks for the update.  I'm looking forward to seeing your house illustration when it is done. I'm also looking forward to seeing the photos that you've taken of the place when you get back from your East Coast trip this spring.  :)

I'll bet the energy in this house is really awesome.

Been out of town due to a family emergency for a few days, but I thought I'd share this so far unpublished redesign of the website for The Seth House. It took me an entire week to create the illustration of the "revitalized" Seth House on the home page.
Hopefully the site will go "live" in a couple of days.

Hi Deb,

I hope everything is OK with you and your family. I'll hold them in my prayers and visualize the highest good of all, for everyone involved.


Great job on the Seth house illustration Deb.  :)

I have a question for you. In the website for the Seth house on your link, this takes us to, I believe your illustration and at this site, directly below your illustration of the Seth house, there is a photo of Jane sitting at a typewriter with a window behind her with 2 bottles above the window.

Do you know whether this window that's behind Jane in the photo, is one of the "yellow" windows in your illustration? I think that these windows are what are sometimes called "bay" windows.

I've always wondered whether these yellow windows in your illustration, were the "bay" windows that were the windows that were behind Jane in the various photos that I've seen of their house. In the photos I've seen, it appears that Jane and Rob kept many of the Seth Sessions in, what looks like black 3 ring binders that were placed on a shelf near one of these bay windows.

Yes, absolutely! The windows I highlighted were the dining/living area of Apt 5, the bay windows. I'm still trying to figure out how to represent them as bay (three panel) windows considering the perspective. I'm also working on a floor plan of the apartment. The windows to the right of the yellow windows are the kitchen, definitely an afterthought. The kitchen is so small that Jane and Rob kept the refrigerator in the bathroom. Seth had something to say about that.

The three small windows to the left of the yellow windows are the bathroom, the blank wall was their bedroom, and the 12 panel windowed extension was Rob's studio.

Hi Deb,

Thanks for the insight on the house orientation. I wasn't quite sure where the kitchen was located.

Hey, I have to ask, when you created this illustration, did you purposely opt to make those bay windows yellow in order to symbolically represent the "enlightenment" that came from Seth, as Jane sat in her Kennedy rocker and channeled him for so many hours/years in that room.  :)   If so, nice touch.

Hah! I'm not that deep, especially when I'm in work mode. Actually I did that to make it look like they were busy having a session in that dining/living room area. But I like your idea better. Next I'm going to add Jane in there somewhere, looking out a window.

There's a parking lot on that side of the house and I think it's the one where Jane saw a water creature rise out of a puddle. But she was looking out the kitchen windows at the time.

"Ruburt has been working on a book of poems called The Dialogues, and in it recently he wrote of the double worlds. One night he stood at the kitchen window, and quite without drugs saw a rainy puddle below suddenly turn into an alive, beautifully fluid creature who stood up and walked while the rain slid off its liquid sides."

BTW I've been reading Early Class Sessions 2 and have been wowed by what's in there. It's given me lots of ideas for new topics here.

Hi Deb,

Or maybe when you’re consciously distracted while in work mode, your inner self is able to come through to you, and in its inner voice, subtly suggest to you that you color those windows yellow for a deeper purpose that you weren’t consciously aware of at that time.    :)

I keep hearing good things about those Early Class Session books. I think that's going to be my next purchase.
