“Fright is something one can never get over. When a warrior is caught in such a tight spot he would simply turn his back to the ally without thinking twice. A warrior cannot indulge thus he cannot die of fright. A warrior allows the ally to come only when he is good and ready. When he is strong enough to grapple with the ally he opens up his gap and lurches out, grabs the ally, keeps him pinned down and maintains his stare on him for exactly the time he has to, then he moves his eyes away and releases the ally and lets him go. A warrior, my little friend, is the master at all times.”
Carlos Castaneda

A Separate Reality

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.
