This space is a place to contribute to the tapestry that is our shared mythology.  The ideas, stories,  poems, and pictures shared here are my small contribution to the work of giving birth to a new worldview–one that leads to a more just, sustainable, and compassionate civilization.  All are invited to share their contributions to this work.
