Election Hindsight

I know the election is over, but these videos I shot over the last year are still interesting. In fact, they are even more intriguing with hindsight:

Another Prose-Poem Inspired by JC

8:23 Bliss. Quiet meditation in the darkness of the void. Suddenly: bright, loud, cold. Meditation is broken, I scream! Searching my whole life in the suburbs for the key to happiness. They say, “home is where your hear is.” Our hearts have moved to a new house in the country at eight-hundred twent...

Art as a Reflection of the current Myth State Consciousness

Ron, Thank you for your prose-poem, inspired by JC. I find it admirable that you ended on what you called a “negative” note. I came across this Bahá’í prayer today that was given to me by a friend, Mahdad Manavi, just after September 11th: “May this American Democracy be the first nation to establis...

Meme to a New Mythology

I was particularly interested in the concept of the “meme” as it pertains to the passing on of religious ideology and custom. Being an engineer, I like the idea of these little atomic ideas being passed on from one person to the next, and on a molecular level, from one society to the next. And, just...

The Fool Without a Mentor

Dedance, I like your quote. It fits my personal Call to Adventure quite perfectly. Unlike you, I've had no formal training as a writer. Strangely enough, I wrote a screenplay over the past year. The words just poured from my soul to the page; my fingers magically typed as if controlled by someone el...

Your Leap of Faith

You go with that leap, Tom "Indy" Strong!

Just remember that next, you have to chose from which chalice you shall drink. Choose wisely, my friend!

I am the Fool!

ARE YOU CALLING ME A FOOL???????? Well, let me tell you mister, I am! And I thank thee, Sir Griswold of Mackelwain for pointing that out! Although I am currently an unemployed jester, so I guess that makes me nobody's fool. With that said, I want to leave you with one little thought from beneath my ...

BLISS!

I’ve just completed a screenplay about a hero’s journey. I was very excited to discover that I followed the 12 Stages of the Journey without having prior knowledge of them. I even got the Seven archetypes right! The entire process was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Some days it felt as if the s...
