Welcome to all the wonderful things that make our planet such a special place amidst a fiery, chaotic universe.

The aim of this site is to introduce you to a different perspective of the world, its subtleties, the hidden influences on our lives, the secret directives that govern our responses to the demands on our time, and our emotions.

My home is the southwest of Australia, where the great ocean collides with a strand that has survived for over two billion years, the rounded granite boulders persisting through cataclysmic splitting and joining of continents, burial, inundation, freezing and boiling. Hopefully some of this ancient spirit is captured in my writing and art, an echo, however fleeting, of the real powers that shape the earth and thus humanity.

Enjoy this perspective of the world – there’s plenty to see. The included resources can be used as a stepping stone to a broader understanding of the universe and our part in it.
