Vishnu Springs

Although Kalisoma Springs is a completely fictional place, the idea for it was inspired by an abandoned hotel called Vishnu Springs. Located near Tennessee, IL, the hotel offered medicinal water from a local spring that according to was advertised to cure a wide range of ailments including diseases “peculiar to women”. Ownership of the hotel has changed hands several times, including at one point becoming a hippy commune, until it was eventually given as part of a larger land grant to Western Illinois University (WIU).

Having both read about and experienced the place, I couldn’t help but write up my own version of it. Although I can assure you Vishnu Springs is nothing like Kalisoma Springs in it’s history, I hope to capture it’s powerful and intriguing presence with in my own creation.
