I write, I ride, I read, I roll, I throw and get thrown, I watch, I listen…and think too much most of the time. I work as a spatial scientist in Brisbane Australia.
Obsessed with Japanese history and culture, time, the sentient mind, Human spaceflight, landscape, to free our minds, escaping this gilded biological cage and to get over that third bridge! Music is my muse.
Sleep is my last resort

I remember everything, even if it didn’t happen - Mark Twain
People object when coerced down a particular path, even if they know it is for the better. It is primeval; they feel trapped and cannot get passed this feeling. You have to make them want to go; make the lead so soft they forget it is there.
- Sonam Dorje – 15th Dalai Lama
Yes Wilkins is a good man, he will do what is right. It’s just that what I need of him is not yet right.
