From an early age, I have been interested in writing. One of the defining moments in my life that was an epiphany, was the view of the cosmos on a moonless night stranded deep in the wilderness away from any town and city and marvelling at the spectacular sight of the milky way. Since then, I delved into the mysteries of the cosmos, which includes all things human, as we are part of the cosmos. I have always had an interest in art, which expressed itself in painting, sculpting, ceramics and recently, electronic art. I have written poems and many have been published on the web in the past. In the last two months, I have taken to writing and publisb a weekly journal that covers news and philosophical questions. On Hub Pages I'm continuing to write on a wide variety of topics from economics to arcane technology through the ages. Otherwise, non-fiction writing is currently published on the net, particularly in my own domain, intimatecosmos.com.

I receive more inspireation from people who ask unique, thought provoking questions.Also a significant input comes from my partner, Willaim, F. Raymond over the last 31 years who is a deep philosophical thinker. Much of what I write has some of his influence therein. Were it not for those encouragements from him and others, I might not even be here.
