I first became aware of Jon Kabat-Zinn's work at the Massachusetts Medical Center through Bill Moyers 'Healing and the Mind' some years ago. I suggested him to a good friend who was dealing with chronic pain.

I am currently enrolled in the training and practice techniques of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction class at a time in my life when I would be absolutely lost without it. Through my interest in the class origins I am re-discovering the original teachings of Jon-Kabat-Zinn and find him fascinating and enlightening. So I thought I'd share some insights when I can here as well while I go through the practice over the next 8 weeks.



One year ago I wrote here in this archive the following decision to go to Occupy Boston. My choices and decision that day have come back to haunt me in many ways. Just today I went looking for this paragraph. It wasn't until just this moment I realized it was exactly one year ago today.

"In the end, it came down to two choices for me. Either enter a hospital in an attempt to save my life. Or join a revolutionary occupation in an attempt to save my life, others, and what seems to me at this moment, a GOD forsaken world. I chose the occupation. I figured the hospital will still be there when I get back. There are plenty of other reasons as well which I will elaborate on later, and other choices, within these pages, in the days ahead. Its been a long time coming, and obviously I will have a lot to share and catch up on. For now, I am going to make this brief as I prepare to leave and check out the first phases of Occupy Boston . I will be reporting, photographing, and participating in this event to begin with. For more information, check out Occupy Wall Street . Good bye for now,..Im off to join the revolution! I will be praying for you. Please pray for me. I LOVE YOU ALL!



Talk about illusions. I can't help but ask myself, "what was I thinking?" I still don't know. All I can do is keep moving forward.

Here's one of the better 'moments' then...

"Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, ...and the truth."

The Buddha

I am of no heart, no mind,...I am no-thing.


There could have been nothing. It might have been easier. Instead there is something. The universe exists, and we are here to ask about it. Why?

"Why does the world exist?"

This is what is happening in Spain today. Wake up America. Because its coming here. A complete mainstream media blackout moves me to post and talk about these events that are not pretty, but imperative that we look at them. We either look at them today, or suffer the consequences tomorrow.



With so much going on in my own little delusional corner of the world today, I will have much more to write about this later.

Projects I am working on...

After one of the more intense and highly successful festivals ever at the Newburyport Harvest Festival, my attention now turns to focus on Plum Island, and my premier exhibit at the Parker River Wildlife Refuge Center beginning November 1, 2012 and running through the end of the month. My new image of the 'Plum Island Wave' has become my new 'hit' and several orders, including a 12' mural of the Plum Island Basin have already been placed, and the interest of the exhibit has been off the map. This image and more is in the process of being posted on my Spirit of Newburyport website, along with other corresponding projects that will be documented on my Spirit of Newburyport Blog . Stay tuned for more updates and details regarding these projects shortly.

In 2006 I introduced the first stages of a social 'concept' or exhibit entitled 'Newburyport; An American Perspective'. Sometimes it seems I was living in a different world then. What I have come to learn about this city, this country, and myself since then has been unimaginable to me at the time. And I have a good imagination too. But then again, it's times like this morning when i realize that life evolves in circles, or better yet,...spirals.

Next week I will be introducing the next stage of this 'social exhibit' within a Visionary Diorama, an idea for an 'Artisan Market and Perma - Garden' on Inn Street in my home town of Newburyport, Massachusetts, along with an series of work I've entitled 'Plum Island'. In short, These projects are a culmination of my life's work thus far. Both these series of works have been in the making for years.

I will be sharing the first set of images here and at the Spirit of Newburyport web site shortly, along with the all the information for exhibits and demonstrations that are being scheduled between November 1 and December 21, 2012.


Another subject I am exploring of late and want to share here is the 'creative flow state', creating from the heart, or, ortherwise known as 'tapping into the source' or 'the zone'.
