This web site is for my family and friends and especially my grandchildren: Savannah – Hunter – Alexa – Everett. An informal autobiography of the past, present and future. A collection of experiences and reflections and a little bit of history. Thomas Merton, in “Thoughts in Solitude” sums it up best for me:

MY LORD GOD, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road, though I may know nothing about it. Therefore I will trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

Mind over Matter – <www.thegreatillusion.com>

Is everyone’s life really that different, or is there a thread that connects us all? The experiences we have seem oddly connected, you’ll understand my friend at the end of the long haul.You say to yourself  “What a coincidence” you’re asking yourself  “Is this just a clue”All things that have happened before this moment, are connected correctly  …spooky, but true!To get to a place that you want to be,set your thoughts on it and then magically…This place in your mind suddenly appears, as long as you’re not just plain insincere.It’s mind over matter at work in your life, irony and destiny but hopefully not strife. Mind over matter is a powerful tool, 
use it correctly and follow the rules. You’ve got to know where you are trying to go, you’ve got to know why or the answer is no. But all things are possible through mind in this life, from money & fame to the spiritual life. Just decide on the things you want as your goal, use mind over matter and bring shape to the whole. You’ll see life’s connections in all that you do, re-living the future …it’s like déjà vu.

…But you’ve got to hold on to that feeling inside,
of wanting and striving and direction and pride,
o
r mind over matter becomes words on a page,
and life in this miracle becomes lines on the stage.
