All One…

I was rolling through pictures I took a while back when we were in New York; we had gone to see “Bodies: The Exhibit” The idea was a little morbid – I have to admit was my first thought. Quickly, my curiosity overcame my reluctance and since I wasn’t totally grossed out I decided to [Read More...]

What Really Matters

I’m honored to begin blogging this week for the Principles of Spiritual Living blogs on the Patheos website! I’ve been described as a spiritual warrior, a metaphysician and generally accepted all-around nice guy, though perhaps considered by some to be a slightly off-the-wall Bohemian.

Fishing for the Right Answer
