I am an artist. A painter, designer and creator who likes to write. I live in the Northern Territory of Australia. Writing is something I enjoy, usually for myself. I decided it's time to start sharing.
Priming in the Zen and Now
This sounds a bit crazy. After all, who would think of the Rolling Stones as music to meditate to, but I did. I laugh when I look back and think about it. I was probably around the age of 20. The Tattoo You album was released in 1981, so, loving the Rolling Stones, I raced out to get it. Mick, his satin trousers, and bold stage presence, strutting his stuff and Keith, the renegade hippie with a wicked smile and blazing guitar technique were the matrix of the band to me.
A Neurohacking Wish List for the Stuck Entrepreneur
Fiction isn’t really my thing, but hey, I gave it a go. I saw an ad for Vocal’s Little Black Book challenge and a half price entry fee of $4.95 per month. That’s doable I thought. Boom! Add to cart!

I AM a Gemini
I am a Gemini. Being a Gemini comes with many positive and negative attributes, as do all zodiac signs, and I am the best and the worst of them all.
The Art of Being Transfixed
This reflection was inspired by reading an article from the Psychology Today website, Feeling Intensely: The Wounds of Being “Too Much” by Imo Lo, Psychology Today psychotherapist, art therapist, coach and author of the book Emotional Sensitivity and Intensity. Lo talks about some people having a much greater sensitivity than others and looks at both positive and negative aspects of this personality type.
DAN THE GO TO MAN
Dan was the go-to man. He was a company executive for Ding, a rival of the greater company Whoogle, which was the name on everybody’s lips. When people wanted to know something, they said they would ‘Whoogle it’. This used to piss Dan off no end. ‘Dang’, said Dan, ‘they should be saying Ding it’. But no matter what they did, their rival company was just too strong. Whoogle had cornered the search engine market.
