Motto

If there is to be a brave new world, we must explore the way forward by rediscovering our ancient legacy for a new generation.

Quote

I believe we must focus on the lost knowledge of where we come from before we can truly understand the ancient wisdom of where we are going on the path of our everyday lives.

Personal Mantra

Those who preach about chaos will die by chaos, and those who stand against an empty fear will live to see tomorrow for the meek shall inherit the land.

Favorite Comic Strip

Bloom County and Outland by Berkeley Breathed

Marital Status

Happily married to Linda Smith, the love of my life.
