today is sunday
i woke early and began my walkabout.
it struck me how exploring this cyber world is so much like Dreamtime...
"The Dreaming is at once both the ancient time of creation and the present day reality of Dreaming", Australian Aboriginal culture.
indigenous australians are encouraged to dwell for lengths of time on vision quests. during these sojourns they sing their oral traditions.
by singing these shared songs they can navigate vast differences.

not to minimize this ancient practice in any way...
i am struck with the power of slipping away from current time
on an in depth focus exploring the net. how it can take you anywhere. show you almost anything.
stop time, inspire to your very core.
susanna's winged messengers inspire me to this day.
this cyber quest is a journey that transcends boarders, cultures, ideologies, all distances, even time.
perhaps web and blog addresses can be "shared songs, "
gateways to and beyond our wildest imaginings of inspiration and import.
isn't this what we do here? traverse distances?
expand beyond the constraints of our own imaginations and cultural orientations?
"visit" other souls via words, pictures, profound expression?
the power of this astounds me. then i thought of all of us.
sharing a vision quest. recording our journey,
posting our discoveries.
can you feel the enormity of this?
a cyber walkabout.
what if between now and September 1, 30
when we are exploring the cyber world
we shared a common theme.
and as we do, we begin a post that is a collection of
(a few possibilities)
pictures, photographs, artwork,
links, manuscripts, tutorial-videos, discoveries,
on september 30, i will share my paper post
and mr. linky will be here
to collect your names to serve as a
navigational reference so we can all experience each others
that sets your soul on fire
