A lifetime without Love is of no account
Love is the Water of Life
Drink it down with heart and soul. -Rumi
Be with Nature
I am one river flowing into an infinite ocean of consciousness.

Life is always in flux, omnipresent, impermanent, one scene flows into another, and like a river we eventually make our way back into the ocean.
Mahaloness started out as a way for me to share my art and explorations with those of you sharing space on this wondrous planet. I can honestly say the journey has been a good one, with a little bit of everything along the way. In the last couple of months I have been sharing moments from a trip to Mexico, ‘a Southern journey’, as I have called it. The purpose of my trip was to meet with friends, go surfing, and absorb as much of Mexico as humanly possible. This demanded my full attention and awareness and an complete openness to adventure. The trip opened my mind to a world I could not have imagined, and I like to think my imagination is not so bad, so perhaps ‘mind blown’ would better sum up the experience. The energy there is strong, it is omnipresent, deep, in fact the farther south I journeyed the more steeped I became. Since my return I have been letting it permeate through my consciousness, and when time permits posting new segments of that experience with you. So without further adieu I just want to say thank you, super gracias, and I look forward to more posts here on Mahaloness, for now here is a special foto segment from ‘a Southern journey’.

When I travel down these streets and highways I am a traveller, here to explore this place in this world, while simultaneously travelling in this galaxy, through a universe and so on. My raison d’être is simple, explore life and document the experience through artistic practice. This is very much an intuitive path as I flow with energy of the environment I am in flux with, carrying me through like a leaf in a stream, that flows into a river, that flows into the ocean.
there is much to learn from observing water, whether that is sitting next to a river, a stream or the ocean, water is a powerful teacher and clearly a life force we ought to cherish.

Creativity gives ‘the anger of it all’ a channel to express and use that energy in a meaningful, purposeful way. -love and compassion

The wolf sits in the forest, silent, watching humans chase each other around in boats. ‘What is this strange dance?’, wonders the wolf. Eagle soars overhead as clouds ripple and swirl forming symbols one into another, after another. The sun rises, new beams reaching her soft skin, Earth mother changing as seasons change, we are all changing, everyone, everything, here and elsewhere.
….and now a link to a little video I was in for a travel spot, no stunt doubles. Mahaloness to Grand Rapids Wilderness and all the the good folks involved. Alberta equals animal wildlife, plants, sky, rivers, mountains, badlands, prairie, foothills, lakes, walks, hikes climbs, lets take care of it for future generations to enjoy. Organ kicks in.
