4 faces of a sail boat
(I went with 3 friends after work to Lake Lanier to go sailing. We had so much fun and when we returned to Atlanta, we went to a sleezy hotel bar & drank - lots. I did not make it to work the next day! It was the best, I remember it clearly to this day. I've always wanted a sail boat since then.)

This is probably the most significant picture in the entire catalogue. The events prior to the 8th grade and everything that happened since, was what stops me in my tracks even today.

Weeping Palm willow

Fir Tree

Dead Tree

A Walk in the Forest

I Loved drawing trees. Does that have any deep psychological meaning? Probably! Ha! Ha!

Tonal and Nagual from writings of Carlos Castaneda
I read the first 7 of the books, several times. What you thought you learned in the first two was changed in the third and forth and again in the fifth and sixth. I'm not sure I'd be interested in reading all 12 of them, but I would definitely reread the earlier volumes. Whether or not they are true is irrelevant to me. I learned very much about thinking.
(Carlos Castaneda (25 December 1925 – 27 April 1998) was a Peruvian -born American author. Starting with The Teachings of Don Juan in 1968, Castaneda wrote 12 of books that describe his purported training in traditional Mesoamerican Shamanism. The books and Castaneda, who rarely spoke in public about his work, have been controversial for many years. Supporters claim the books are either true or at least valuable works of philosophy and descriptions of practices which enable an increased awareness. Critics have tended to claim that the books are works of fiction.
Nagual, pronounced [na'wal]) is a human being who has familiar animals or spirits and/or the power to magically adopt animal forms. The Nagual can then use his powers for good or evil according to his personality.
Tonal (mythology), a concept appearing in the belief systems and traditions of Mesoamerican cultures, involving a spiritual link between a person and an animal.)


I believe this was following a minor fender bender. I was charged and had to go to court. The judge ruled in my favor.
