This is my personal website that conveys an ethereal, as well as an existential view of life.
I like to look at existence in the abstract where there are no real absolutes.
A paradox ensues.
Ugliness can be beautiful just as beauty can be ugly.
The good may turn out bad, and the bad may turn out good.
Just ask Schrodinger’s cat ...
This philosophy is not new for me; just listen to my music stretching back 40 years.
Life and thoughts that are divided, confuse us when we see things as solely binary.
Believing oneself right and therefore others wrong may cause cognitive dissonance.
There is no absolute yes or no as there is always a maybe.
There is much more grey than black or white.
There is no right way, or wrong way ... there is only the Way. The Way that you choose.
Through our individual creativity and respect for all life, creation and ideas, we each find Our Way.
To use our energies to the contrary is wasteful and eventually has dire consequences.
This is my path ... take it or leave it... sometimes I take it or leave it too.
Judge me if you dare tarnish your own soul... at times I have tarnished my own soul enough.
We are all made in the image of our creator in that our greatest drive
is to create and / or recreate through our arts, our children and our relationships.
May your image of our creator be benevolent.
It matters to me ... Maybe
In the time of your life, live—so that in that good time there shall be no ugliness or death for yourself or for any life your life touches. Seek goodness everywhere, and when it is found, bring it out of its hiding-place and let it be free and unashamed. Place in matter and in flesh the least of the values, for these are the things that hold death and must pass away. Discover in all things that which shines and is beyond corruption. Encourage virtue in whatever heart it may have been driven into secrecy and sorrow by the shame and terror of the world. Ignore the obvious, for it is unworthy of the clear eye and the kindly heart. Be the inferior of no man, nor of any man be the superior. Remember that every man is a variation of yourself. No man’s guilt is not yours, nor is any man’s innocence a thing apart. Despise evil and ungodliness, but not men of ungodliness or evil. These, understand. Have no shame in being kindly and gentle, but if the time comes in the time of your life to kill, kill and have no regret. In the time of your life, live—so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.

My 'prophetic' "Reflection" video below from 2017.
It's not really prophetic as anyone not suffering from the Dunning-Kruger effect could see what was coming.
Youtube took it down late 2020 as it deemed it as "Harassing and Bullying" but just allowed it again Jan 16 / 2021
