Theory of Everything

I suspect we all have a theory of everything. Though I know science is looking for that all inclusive theory, Thomas Campbell already has one. It’s called My Big TOE. Even after I realized TOE was an acronym, I still had trouble getting Tom’s big toe our of my head…


father and son

There were artifacts in my childhood that sustained me against a sea of trouble Shakespeare couldn’t have imagined. Music was one of those things that kept my heart buoyant through the storms. Tiny life rafts that opened up passages to secret, inner islands. Now, here I am, a father- listening…


Other People’s Photos

Everyone has a story. It’s filled with history, artifacts, other characters, love, fear, mistakes. Watching other people’s photos gives you insight, at least into the good parts. There has been a lot of good parts. Very few pics remain. They only exist on FB, and if it goes, so does…


The One Thing

Sometimes, I have more ideas streaming through my head than I know how to channel. I would really love to be on a team where we brainstorm and arrive at a finished product. Like today, an idea for animals that live at the zoo, but are not zoo animals, was…


UFOs and Aliens

When you think of UFOs, do you think of saucers? That’s probably the first image that comes to mind, which is kind of interesting if you consider the first reported UFO by Kenneth Arnold so long ago weren’t really saucers. 1947 was so long ago? What Arnold reported seeing was…

UFOs and Aliens

You know a good movie when it stands the test of time. It’s watchable no matter how much time has passed. Close Encounters of the Third Kind is such a movie. Did you know there were government agencies, including NASA, that were opposed to it’s production? Does that mean the…


UFO and Aliens

And they are both right and both wrong, but not for the reasons they think.

If you don’t follow me, or UFOs, you may be thinking what just happened? The short of it, Lovato posed an idea that we should be more thoughtful in the terminology we use for aliens. In a media response, Tyson ridiculed her.

People love to discuss UFOs. I do. You…


Experiments in Consciousness

For a thought experiment, assume that conscious, focused attention affects reality. Maybe something as simple as sending a prayer of health and well being to another allows for change. Does the recipient feel or get better as the number of people praying go up? Do thoughts of harm have unintended…


More than Aliens

Bryce Zabel and David Bates, in a conversational essay breakdown of the book Skinwalkers at the Pentagon: An Insiders’ Account of the Government Secret UFO Program, by George Knapp, Colm Kelleher and James Lacatski, explore the possibility that aliens may bring the paranormal to the table. Yes, another book that…

I am a father, a counselor, and have been fortunate enough to have traveled the world. I enjoy writing, exploring consciousness, and listening to others.
