Wanna Buy A Photo??

A couple of years ago, my friend here in Brno – Walter Novak – a quite famous photographer in the USA – gave me some tips on taking photos. I started shooting things with my iphone that I thought interesting. It might be a sunset between buildings, an unusual view of the familiar, an unusual street lamp or anything like that. I then use a tool he shared with me to process it a bit and in as a creative ay as possible. The results I think, have been pretty good. As I collected all of these photos, I inevitable wondered what to do with them? I wanted to put them in an album online but couldn’t ind anything that worked well enough and didn’t cost a grand. Then I

Jammin’

My oldest son visited a week ago from Austin. We had a great time and it was so good to see him and see what a fine young man he is. Paul was always an amazing guitarist and so one night we got talking guitar. He ended up overlaying one of my songs with his guitar work – the result is out on Spotify today and all other music outlets. It’s a real rocker. It’s Out There is one of my favorite songs (of mine) and his guitar work just elevates it another level. Give it a listen… For good measure, I asked my daughter to add to the backing vocals too so its a family effort. likeheartlaughterwowsadangry0

Proven? It’s a Theory….

Somehow, the idea that science is proven or settled has become a thing in recent times. I’m not just talking climate – I’m talking about science in general and how it is portrayed by the media in particular. “Settled, done, dusted…..” Er – nope. The scientific method is very specific. It is an approach that goes like this…. – Observe and collect data, – Create a theory to explain the observed data, – Invite criticism via a peer review process of the theory, and – Model the theory and make predictions based upon it that can be validated. Essentially, this process calls for continual iterations of a theory until such time as it no longer serves and is replaced with another. Notice the use of the word THEORY. All science

Energy lines and Wyrd

A strange thought came to me this evening as I was thinking about mapping energy lines and doing a bit or research on the web. I was wondering what energy lines where? – where they came from? and so on and suddenly a thought popped up – Wyrd. The women of wyrd or the three wyrd sisters spinning the web of wyrd – what if part of that web was Earth energy? The ancients felt these earth energies and used them. They built huge structures where earth energy lines seem to cross. How did they use them? Brain Bates in his novel Way of Wyrd has the apprentice being taught how to use lines of the wyrd web to propel himself through space. The book is fictional of course but

Social Media’s Mirror

One of Franz Bardon’s exercises is to spend a month writing down as many personal faults as you can think of and then a month writing down all of the positive traits you can think of. He calls this a mirror and it is known as Bardon’s Mirror. In fact, if you follow Bardon through, the next step is to assign an element to each fault and virtue (Fire, Earth, Water, Air) and see which element dominates and which is weak so you can work on addressing an elemental balance within yourself. It is actually a very hard thing to do. I have tried several times and never been truly happy with the results because plainly, I’m blind to my traits. I did ask a few close friends but despite

It’s My Life

One of my more popular songs is a rock anthem called It’s My Life. It was one of those songs that as a writer, it is in your head and drives you nuts. You play around on the guitar trying to actualize something in your head with increasing frustration because you can’t quite get there. And then -POW – you got it and in a few minutes of recording frenzy… its done….. and bugger it – I want this song played full volume at my funeral.   A few days ago, a FB friend sent me a private message…. he basically said I was brave to tell it like it was. He agreed with me but if he said as much, he’d be in trouble and lose his job. The

Fun Mapping energy Lines

I’m busy in my spare time at the moment mapping energy lines on Špilberk Castle. This is the Castle above my apartment that I have written about before. I took my rods out and walked around the Castle one day last week.   Initially, I was trying to use Google maps and failed miserably.  Then I discovered that there is an app for that!! Really! It’s called Dowsing Mapper it is available for the iPhone and Android. It even has its own webpage and youtube video use instructions. It doesn’t take long to learn to use and is actually very easy to work with. I was amazed that such an app existed to be honest but I expect to be using it a lot from now on. Using GPS and

History of Warming

These days, we are hammered from almost every source about how it’s warming and the climate is changing. I can imagine for some, it is very alarming and even scary. Me? Well I’m an Aquarian and by nature a contrarian. I also have the dubious benefit of having studied Geology an extra 6-years after school attaining a Ph.D and having published about 8 or 9 peer reviewed scientific papers in that time. This has given me another way to look at things as follows; I understand how science works – I have played that game…. I have a 4.5 billion year perspective as opposed to a 60-year one…. I know how to do research and how to distinguish real facts from beliefs, I’m not afraid to say it like I

Sowing Warmth – By Sue Vincent

This post by my very good friend, Sue Vincent, really had me thinking this morning and seems very apt for a Sunday post… If you enjoy it please pop over to her blog and catch a few more insightful thoughts from Sue and her friends…   There was a road closure on the way to work, so, to avoid the build-up of traffic, I took to the back streets, wending my way through a residential area and passing the house in which we had first lived when we moved south. To let oncoming cars pass, I pulled to one side, almost outside our old home, and was able to see what had become of my garden. It had been a blank canvas when we had moved in, with nothing but
