We all have revelations at the turn of the year when we, like the Roman god Janus, look both forward and back. This was the year I discovered that I am, in effect, homeless. I haven't really felt at home... continued


December 8, 2009
As part of a documentary that our filmmaker friend Timothy Greenfield-Sanders is making about Whitley, we recently visited the "Communion" cabin in upstate New York where we were menaced by one of the locals. On the way back to New... continued

On NOT Going to a Movie about UFOs

November 10, 2009
Sometimes you can learn as much from not going to a movie as you can from actually seeing it, because it lets you know where you are in the metaphysical landscape. There are two movies out right now that have... continued

The Laughing Buddha

October 20, 2009
The Stargate Conference during the weekend of October 16- 18 was a time of incredible synchronicity for me, and some of it was downright funny. It started on Friday afternoon, when I rubbed the belly of a fat, golden Buddha... continued

In one of the first diaries I wrote for this website, I talked about how my efforts to put up a birdfeeder and wind chimes (seeming innocent pursuits) were being thwarted by the aggressive local squirrels. I was once kept... continued

The Irish Milkmen of the Dog World

August 5, 2009
I'm afraid this diary may insult both dog lovers and Irishmen but hey, that's never stopped me yet! Our son was a handsome boy and Whitley and I are, well, a bit challenged in that department, although I'm a lot... continued
