Raising the legs is the single most challenging moment of building this temple. The 5 main structural legs are made from 5-6 inch diameter Guadua Bamboo and are about 32 feet tall!

I haven’t been posting lately. I’ve been in another mode. A doing mode. I’ve been a busy monkey – designing and building a temple. It all started about a month ago – just as I was saying yes to another huge project in my life that I will discuss later. I discovered that some friends […]Read more "The Temple of Integrity"

Lots of dream action last night…though I can’t remember much. It’s so interesting to write dreams down. A tiny shard of memory tends to unpack itself into so much more as I write it down.

Our clothing, our homes, our kitchenware… need not be […]Read more "Utopian Art Car"

I dreamed that I was looking at my stock trading account which I have not checked in months, and of the 10 or 15 stocks I have, I noticed that that the one […]Read more "Over One Billion Dollars"
Sleep: I just don’t seem to need much now. Even when I do sleep, I can tell, I’m highly activated. It doesn’t really feel restful, but obviously it’s not affecting my day. Quite the opposite – days are supercharged, just like the nights. So what I’m realizing is that these several hours before dawn are […]Read more "Night Shift"
