Welcome to my site.

The psychology of human experience fascinates me, how we are
changed by our interaction with the world and the world is changed
by our active participation. I have traveled to
and lived/worked in over
eighty countries and am continuously amazed by the wealth of
diversity of life and experience within our world.

Being the recipient of an essentially classical education, my youth
was filled with the tales
and heroics of myth.  Sometime in college, I
became fascinated with Greek philosophy.  Then, when I set foot in
Greece for the first time, I was infected with physical And psychic
wanderlust.   With Pausanias in hand, I wandered the lands of omens
and oracles, dreams and daemons, ecstasy And enthusiasm, of a
world long gone
and tantalizingly close.   I drank from the Castalian  
and listened at Dodonna.  I wandered Ephesus And Egypt and
finally came upon Eleusis.

This website is created to examine this gift of the Eleusinian Mysteries,
to compile all extant classical references to the Mysteries, and  to open
a portal to a sense of wonder, to be open to the Mystery of life.
