“You’re in a terrible spot. It’s too late for you to retreat but too soon to act. All you can do is witness. You’re in the miserable position of an infant who cannot return to the mother’s womb, but neither can he run around and act. All an infant can do is witness and listen to the stupendous tales of action being told to him. You are at that precise point now. You cannot go back to the womb of your old world, but you cannot act with power either. For you there is only witnessing acts of power and listening to tales of power.”
Carlos Castaneda

Tales of Power

About Me

  • I am a real (I think) person (though I’ve been told I am not from here).
  • I write here for myself though it’s nice if you come across something of interest to you.
  • I am a Yoga practitioner
  • I had a career in software technology that ended on a satisfying note of design in service of human beings.
  • I had a magical meeting with photography
  • Purpose brought me to rural Romania where I live mostly in retreat at Bhudeva where I am exploring how to create a warm and embracing home.
  • I created and am keeper of story at Cutia Taranului (Peasant Box) – helping Romanian peasants sell their food directly to customers in cities.
  • I have been held by and try to hold a space for a more feminine world.
  • In recent years my heart feels increasingly whole when I look inside and broken when I look around.
  • I like wearing grey.
