"The traveler has to knock at every alien door to come to his own,
and one has to wander through all the outer worlds
to reach the innermost shrine at the end....."


WELCOME! Perhaps you're a friend, looking in to pay a visit.
If no old ties connect us, then surely some shared interests have
brought you to my virtual doorstep.

On the following pages, immerse yourself in this beautiful world of ours.
Follow me to distant shores, where people and cultures, historic sites
and traditions have enriched my life. Stroll through a Bonsai Garden with me,
and let the words of ancient Chinese poets speak to you of ever-lasting
plum blossoms. On the "Art" page, peek through brilliant colors into the world
of my imagination; a caring, expansive and interrelated world we all share.
Let's tread softly.



" A World of Imagination "

There are places in this world that are neither here nor there,
neither up nor down, neither real nor imaginary.
These are the in-between places, difficult to find
and even more challenging to sustain.
Yet, they are the most fruitful places of all.
For in these limited narrows, a kind of life takes place
that is out of the ordinary, creative, and once in a while,
genuinely magical.

We tend to divide life between mind and matter and to assume
that we must be in one or the other or both.
But religion and folklore tell of another place that is often
found by accident, where strange events take place, and where we
learn things that can't be discovered in any other way.

---(Thomas Moore)


Artists, scientists; everyone of past, present
and future, related to each other by the realization of innate talents
without making concessions to the slogans and demands of the majorities;
not out of egotism but by necessity, and thereby helping to objectify spirit,
science; humanity beyond all limitations of nationality, race, religion
and ideology.

---Hermann Hesse

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest-a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty."

---Albert Einstein on Consciousness

"The true meaning and the true happening in your life occurs along the lines
of value fulfillment, in terms of comprehensions, psychological experiences,
and fulfillments that do not take up space, and that are independent of time
as you know it."

---Jane Roberts: Early Sessions Book 2 of the Seth Material
