Recording my travels on the Road through creative musings on politics, spirituality, sexuality, arts, people, ideas. Seeing Past anger, fear, hatred, anxiety, insecurity, resentment and regret, and on to a better world of freedom, tolerance, respect, love, and a joyful, transcendent romancing of the totality of being ALIVE! Encouraging expression of Spirit through integrated, enlightened renaissance individuals to mend of the fractured personality of our times. Mirabile dictu, don't you agree?
"Heaven has a road, but no one travels it; Hell has no gate, but men will bore through to get there."
"The only thing of value to the Universe is the active soul." Ralph Waldo Emerson
“If the world is to be healed through human efforts, I am convinced it will be by ordinary people, people whose love for this life is even greater than their Fear." Joanna Macy

“It is only in the shadows, when some fresh wave, truly original, truly creative, breaks upon the shore, that there will be a rediscovery of the West.” Jacques Barzun
"Sometimes the oddest people have the clearest vision." Miss Jane Marple
"Art is an abstraction: extract from nature while dreaming before it and concentrate more on creating than on the final result."
"If you have known how to compose your life, you have accomplished a great deal more than the man who knows how to compose a book. Have you been able to take your stride? You have done more than the man who has taken cities and empires. The great and glorious masterpiece of man is to live to the point. All other things- to reign, to hoard, to build- are, at most, but inconsiderate props and appendages." Montaigne
"With the the pride of the artist, you must blow against the walls of every power that exists the small trumpet of your defiance."
"First they ignore you, Then they laugh at you, Then they fight you- Then you win!"
It only takes...
One happy person!
