This is a blog about the Big Questions, Life, Travel, and Creativity.
I’ll be exploring ideas about the nature of Life and What Is Real.
This will take us into some very human yet very strange territories ranging from ancient history to the underpinnings of the religious idea in mankind, and from science and exotic physics to the lands beyond the boundaries in the shamanic practices of the world. We will explore the sacred use of plants and the glories of the ritual entheogen experience, from the home fronts to the depths of the Amazon jungle.
I’ve been on a life-long journey to try to make sense of the world; to seek to understand what is really going on – before I run out of time. It is the eternal question. Why are we here? What is the nature of reality – of consciousness? Are we alone?
I will be adding new essays, thoughts, poems, photos, artwork, links to music and more, as often as I can, or as the Muses allow.
Your considered comments are always welcome.
I am a television director, master editor, motion graphics artist, photographer, and composer. I also write. My travels, both literal and metaphorical, have taken me far, exploring the nature and history of the religious impulse in humanity in search of What is Real. I have worked with the spirit people in the Amazon and met myself in various guises in the deserts of the West.
