I live in New Zealand, half a world away from my origins. I came here out of curiosity. I enjoy ideas. I like to talk about them and sometimes try them. I thrive on big ideas but overlook practical details. This trait is sometimes interpreted either as brilliance or laziness, but is probably a combination. I thrive on being different. I love being asked to find solutions to problems, and my solutions will be unique.
I thrive as a behind-the-scenes enabler for visionaries.
I tend to be a loner. I love to explore out of the way places. When I plan a trip, I am drawn to those areas on the map that have no roads or towns. I like mud houses, fractal gardens, alcoves, compost heaps, organic efficiency, naps, thunderstorms, and going barefoot. Fermentation and vegetables from my garden make me happy.
I like to be with someone who has no expectations. I prefer silence to chit-chat, and this is not a negative statement about the other person.
I am finding it helpful to understand that reality is frequently the exact opposite of what we are told it is, and to view events in this way.
I know there is a God and it is possible to be his friend. At the moment I am sorting out what this means for me.
I maintain this blog as:
- news updates for interested people,
- an outlet for ideas and thoughts, and
- a photo blog.
I post whenever there is something worth posting, so it tends to be “boom” or “bust.” I like to hear your comments.
