The Colors of the Four Horsemen

I just gave a talk with Matthew Wood and Jon Baklund on a horse breeder’s view of the colors given for the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I had been given an esoteric translation of the two-thousand-year old original Greek version of Revelations that was especially fascinating to me as it informed me that the original […]

Confronting White Dude Shamanism

I managed to get the first book in my series on the Rune Field out just as this global resurgence of fascism, white supremacy and neo-Nazism began to hit the news. I now find myself addressing three different groups all with highly charged emotional approaches to the Runes. The first two groups define each other. […]

‘Something Elses’ Flipped the 2020 Election

I offer a heartfelt Thank You to all the ‘something elses’ who pray for the well being of all the children, regardless of who their ancestors are.

My challenge is to integrate the foundations of that intellectual […]

I Do Love Anatomy

I am in the process of figuring out how to illustrate the ecstatic body postures, rune stances and martial arts movements that are integrated into my World Tree Cards. Throughout time, these positions have been illustrated with considerable artistic license. Meaning abstract lines and 3-d figurines have constraints of their own that really aren’t relevant […]

Bay Laurel, Fatty Liver and Lab Tests

I am currently on an early to bed ( because I am too miserable to function) and early to rise (because I am too miserable to stay in bed) schedule. All because apparently my liver/pancrease/diaphragm have decided that they will clear all the obstructions, toxins and adhesions of my entire lifetime right now. I am […]
