About Me

My photo

I am a mystic madman, a wandering wildman, scholar of esoterica, dilettante sadhu, dready-headed hippie (only have a few jata on the back of my head right now, though more be forming of this third set of knotted hair), gentle yogi, fierce foe of falsity. I was a preacher, but I renounced that. I was married, but she renounced me. I was a grad student at one of the top universities in the world on my way to becoming a professor, but I realized they taught lies there too. I am protector of souls, lover of mountains, smoker of herb, fond of hot springs, oceans and lakes and rivers and rain and sunshine, devotee of Devi.

The Land's Circulatory System . . . Help Keep those Arteries Clean



The Yampa River in Colorado is in trouble--again!! Though once saved by the efforts of the Sierra Club and others who wish to see one of the western United States' last free flowing rivers remain free, once again mineral and farming interests are seeking to dam or divert this wonderful and beautiful (and rare) free-flowing river.

Though some of this nations rivers are in better shape than they were fifty years ago, as rivers on fire are not so common as they were in those days, their are still threats to the health and purity of this countries once pure and clean waterways.

Please write to the appropriate regulatory authorities and representatives to congress to save the Yampa, and to call for the restoration of our nations waters, as well as to pressure foreign governments to preserve and restore their rivers and lakes.
