What is this site about?........It's a Beginning

This text has been in construction, at least in my mind,  for many many years.  It is not that I lacked the resources to put it up but like all my projects it suffered a kind of cosmic inflation soon after I conceived it. As is typical with me the theoretical structure of the envisioned site grew beyond my capacities and the software technology available back then.  But I now, out of a need to amend  my  reclusian temperament and a growing desire to connect to others of similar persuasion, I have adopted a "built it in plain sight " and "just do it" strategy.

I would characterize the content as a compendium or portfolio of  "projects" I have embraced over the years.   True to my omnivorous interests they  span many seemingly disassociated areas of human endeavour.  It has always been my desire to bring my diverse interest into an art production  ... to experience a collapse of the wave function.  So far it hasn't happened.

Projects multiply and inflate faster than I can complete them....  unfortunately,  as a result many are simply "Da Vincian" pointers to a process  and a fragment of production  to which I may or  may not return.    Process is not really about product; hence there is seldom a finalized work which makes it to the outside world.  Nevertheless, I want to put them "out there" and troll for sympathetic minds.  I live in a beautiful but isolated place where opportunity for exposure is a scarce commodity; so that is a secondary goal in launching this "project"... to open myself to new adventures.

So bear with me..... It is a process.

I am starting with a provisional skeleton.  Things will be added and things will dissapear.  The flesh is to be filled in as time permits.  There are lots of images  to find and prepare as well as texts to be written.  Consistent with my newly adopted approach of "just do it" ; I have established no hierarchy in the content, as there should be,  so who knows what will show up next.   Please let me know what you think or notify me of any gross errors, if you (if there is a you) have the time.
