       Let's INTERCONNECT ~ Why I'm attending the IONS conference

I believe there is an easy answer to the hard problem of consciousness and I am looking for mentors. meetings in the Bay Area during mid-July and financial backers to help me spread a message of light, love, and the basic flow of being a human that happens when we can live in a world that is setup for all life to flourish.

The Reality of Virtual Relationships

The Reality of Virtual Relationships

The world of social media is allowing us, as a species, to communicate in a manner closer to pure consciousness than we have had the chance to in our recorded human history.

Let's face it. Bodies are complicated. We all have physical needs, wants, quirks, and awkwardness. It takes a lot of trial and error to bond with a person when bodies also have to be sorted.

One of the most important skills I have found I possess is my ability to observe and pay attention.

Join me in this revolution!

If You Need to Write It, Someone Needs to Read It

We all love our dogs and there are thousands of books celebrating the joys of our dogs. But the honest reality is that they live very short lives. When I went through the intense and ultimately fatal illness of my first dog, I felt all alone. I often wrote through my feelings. And after a few years, the thought of writing a book to help others through a very difficult period in their lives emerged.
