A ritual circle which brings the far away, the very small, the ignored

or half forgotten, into the magical middle realm of the contemplative

compassionate eye.

A ritual circle which not just mirrors the Beautiful, but reflects also the

Strange and Ugly through the clear, yet necessarily imperfect and

always slightly blurred, lens of partial truth.


The difference between the Old and New Economy is
that the one says, "Let your money work for you!,"
while the other says, "Let the Sun work for you!"

Remarkably, this one difference will necessarily
and in a forceful way help bring the world of Culture
back in step with the world of Nature.


In matters of Philosophy and Design, demonstration
is everything.

Once one stands atop the mountain they said could
not be climbed, has played the piece they said could
not be played, nothing more need be said.
