it really is about the journeyExploration comes in many forms. There is the art of exploring places, people, intellectual studies, and of course products. I feel to best appreciate the “art” of exploring one must first find an intellectual foothold to better understand the complexity of discovery.

Within the confines of “self” there are the many expanding horizons that result in more questions. There’s what we know, what we don’t know, and what we don’t even know to ask.

Jose Silva in his Mind Control classes teaches ways to discover human potential. This takes the form of healing, ESP, and formulating a plan for the future that is crafted by our own design. Each meditative step is a projection of what could be.

Before Mr. Silva began developing Mind Control he was a healer. Each method he experimented with produced varying results. Using your mental screen as you do in problem solving you can become an successful psychic healer. Simply by meditation and visualization you will produce an effective plan to enhance life’s possibilities which will tip the balance into the realm of accomplishment.

After discovering our limitless potential for expanding  horizons, other people will unveil themselves beyond their defensive cloak. This will create dialogue not possible before. With any unearthing of truth there is a sense of well being that is self contained and also projected beyond the conversation.

This realization isn’t only contained in ourselves. Openness to a lack of restriction means that travel can go way beyond the usual tourist paths.  Straying into places just beyond our field of vision can lead to the act or power of imagination.

This imagination results in our delving into history. History of the places we visit add a layer of understanding and interest that connects humanity from long ago to the present experience. The pictures we take of those places and people we meet bridge our “living in the moment” to the past.

Memories are a fixed internal dialague that re-enact that beautful timeless thought to a description that only gets better with time. Like a fine wine the memory ages and the representation or account of a person, object, or event becomes synonymous with a feeling we will never forget.

Scripting our journey to combine that which we can control with that which we can’t is part of the mystery. The first time doing or seeing anything is usually the best. Part of our DNA is the wonder of that which we discover under the vast topic of “exploration”.

Within the scope of this topic is food and wine. Fresh ingredients only available in a certain locale produced by a world class chef unleashes a variety of sensory thoughts. The display, texture, and taste of the meal if properly executed form a bond to the environment as a whole. The place, the skill set, the appreciation of what it takes to accomplish that rare culinary event goes beyond the scope of discovery and into the book of memories.

Equally transcendent is a wine that captivates. Difficult to produce with many layers of production and skill, the template for exceptional becomes rarefied air. Distant from the life and concern of the ordinary this experience is one to applaud and acknowledge. Getting lost for a moment in time and reflecting on the scent, color, viscosity, age, and layers of flavor is a tribute to the love and experience it takes to produce such a living, evolving, entity.

As you can see exploration is an acknowledgment of wisdom found. The sagacity of profound discovery becomes a chapter that adds another layer to our ever expanding repetoire of life.


Living in a Park Setting, Hiking, and other Observations


a place that lives in your heart

Two years ago we began a build above a little town in Idaho called Orofino. Finding this property was not easy but the journey to discover its place in our hearts was worth every obstacle we faced. We then fell in love with the possibilities of purchasing this wonderful property overlooking the Dworshak Dam reservoir.

Our criteria was simple: 1. The property must have its own water supply (a well). 2. The location must be close to a hospital. 3. The location must be close to a firehouse. 4. Location needs to be relatively close to a Costco and Walmart. 5. There must be a sense of seclusion away from people, immersed in nature, quiet and peaceful.

And so after the Pandemic supply chain issues were navigated the home was finished.  We then made our way from Henderson Nevada to our new dramatic  lifestyle change to begin in June 2022. Technically I was still working at the Aria in Las Vegas as I was on a three month leave of absence. The leave was for medical reasons but really was to determine whether, once we settled in, Orofino was the right place for Nancy and I.

My leave of absence was to expire on September 1st, 2022. We quickly fell in love with the place, the people, and the park like setting. September 1st, 2022 I gave my notice for retirement.

From that point on our new life began. All in, we began the strategy to live here full time. This meant that our beautiful home in Henderson Nevada was going to have to be sold. Managing a property long distance without a property manager but with the headaches that accompany any long distance venture became an excercise in futility.

October of 2022 our home in Henderson went on the market and in March of 2023 it closed. Another chapter (16 years in that home on Pony Ranch Circle) closed and a new story to be written. One of the most beautiful parts of life is living in a story you write and not dictated by others or monetary circumstance.

Yesterday we hiked along a road on our property framed by Birch, Mapple, Pine, Spruce, and Douglas Fir trees with the sound of birds and the quiet solitude of nature around us. We came upon (in the middle of nowhere) a tree fort. This reminded me of the many tree forts we built as kids and so, of course, I climbed and viewed a spectacular view of the reservoir and a herd of Elk grazing below.

Timeless in this moment all persepective became a future fond memory living in natures catalog richly displaying its beauty and serenity . Hiking along the path from our home to the outskirts we experienced so many of nature’s  nuances.

It hasn’t been since I was a kid that I really took the time to enjoy a moment in nature like this. I used to sit on the lawn of our home in Fairfax California and watch the bees land on the clover flowers. I remember sitting there for hours enjoying the dance of the honey bees as they flew back to their hive after pollinating the little white blooms.

Even in the darkness of winter this place is magical. Watching the deer, elk, and other creatures graze in the meadow below our home is mesmerizing. Its like living in an aquarium without fish. Viewing all of this from a solarium captivates our senses and enhances our connection with all those living things that pass along our viewing spectrum.

The colorful sunsets in our field of vision project a band of colors, as seen in a rainbow, produced by seperation of the components of light by their different degrees of refraction according to wavelenght, distance, and scale. The changing subtlety of this display is in full exhibit every night as the sun sinks and the stars rise upon the canvas of darkness.

Travel seems to be on the horizon for us. However, with each trip we come back to the reality of our situation. We are truly blessed to be in a play that we’ve written acted out on a stage we’ve built in an environment we love.




Leaving Las Vegas

This week marks the end of an era as we have sold our home in Henderson Nevada. We had some wonderful times witnessing  world class entertainment which included: Paul McCartney, Elton John, Ringo Starr, Tony Bennett, Smokey Robinson, The Beach Boys, The Moody Blues, David Copperfield, All the Cirque du Soleil shows… and much more.

I would be remiss if I didn’t also include the restaurant experiences: Guy Savoy, Jean George Steakhouse,  American Fish, Bouchon, Fleur de Lys, Fiamma, Craftsteak, Sinatra at the Wynn, Daniel Ballou at the Wynn, Bartolotta at the Wynn, Nine Steak House at the Palms, Hanks at the Green Valley Resort, T-Bones at Red Rock Casino, Prime at the Bellagio, Michael Mina at the Bellagio, Commanders Palace at the Aladdin Casino, and Postrio at the Venetian. There were many more but this gives you a sampling of the hospitality industries commitment to excellence in Las Vegas.

In September 2002 I moved to Las Vegas with Nancy. When we moved there the following structures were built after we arrived: Highway 215, The Wynn, Encore, City Center, Green Valley Casino, The Linq Hotel and Experience, Red Rock Casino, Resort World, T-Mobile Arena (Hockey (the Golden Knights) and entertainment center, The Las Vegas Ball Park (home to the Las Vegas Aviators), The Raiders Stadium,  and a myriad of housing developments too many to mention.

Through-out this experience we were blessed to begin in an apartment and end up in a dream home in Henderson. I worked with world class chefs as a captain/server and even got my Sommelier certificate. Along the way we traveled in close proximity to Las Vegas visiting Cedar City Utah, St. George Utah, San Diego, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Malibu, Santa Barbara, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, Solvang, Buelton, Sedona Arizona, Jerome Arizona, Prescott Arizona,  Scottsdale Arizona, The Grand Canyon Arizona, Zion National Park Utah, and Bryce Canyon Utah.

We lived a wonderful life in the Las Vegas area and were truly blessed to be apart of and witness its meteoric rise in hospitality and entertainment. Walking through the Wynn before it was completed and being apart of its opening was magical. Then I was fortunate enough to open the Aria at the City Center. Along the way we met some incredible people that have added so much to our lives.

Working with world class chefs and master sommeliers was an added bonus. The depth of learning and commitment to excellence enhanced by the lavish surroundings provided by the Casino operators lifted our appreciation of the experience to an unequalled footing with the worlds best. No where else in the entire world could you see an NFL game, have an unparralleled dining experience, and then sleep in luxory befitting any VIP within a 10 block radius.

This, not to mention the energy on the Las Vegas Strip which culminated with New Years Eve. One Million people on the Strip closed to traffic that day with an amazing firework display witnessed by the entire world. People from all over the world came to be apart of an event they would never forget. Truly an experience by which all others would be judged.

Now, for the next chapter Nancy and I have moved to Idaho. There couldn’t be two more extreme environments. Vegas with its selfies and the catch phrase, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” to the solitude of the wilderness.

The next chapter will involve travel, very special time with family and friends, and the hobbies put off due to businesses and work. Actually embracing the secluded spacial consciousness and taking time to enjoy without the thought of anything but peace and quiet. And so it begins.




The Truth about Covid-19 Part Two


reflectionsThis blog contains information that may be harmful to your reality. What we have been fed by our government and the media is a lie. The media is virtually owned by the pharmaceutical companies as corporate sponsors and thus only hides the truth and paints the doctors and scientists that disagree with the vaccine rollout as quacks or frauds.

To briefly recap, Dr. Fuellmich and his assembled team of scientists (from around the world)  have embarked on a study to prove or disprove that the Covid-19 vaccine is safe and not influenced by corporate greed.

His “Corona Investigation Committee” has spent over a year compiling documents and testimony from hundreds of experts from every field of science investigating the origins of the pandemic, the restictions put in place, and the vaccine rollout.

Now we begin Part Two which will delve into Covid-19 to illustrate the point  that the pandemic was planned, the virus man made, with the aim to funnel people towards taking an experimental and potentially deadly vaccine.

As the Corona Investigation Committee notes, the fear-mongering and restrictions were ramped up with the aim to funnel people towards a vaccine with the stress being on an “emergency”. Typically, vaccines take 8-10 years to develop, yet four main manufacturers were able to develop so-called “vaccines” within months that could only be rolled out under an
Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) – only possible if there are no other tried and tested treatment options. With alternative treatment options suppressed-and a media actively vilifying and making fun of the alternatives – the propaganda picked up pace for a situation where “every man and women on the planet is vaccinated” as Bill Gates put it.

As Dr. Fuellmich notes, the vaccines are not backed by any medical or scientific study, and are not in fact vaccines but gene therapies, as the manufacturers admit. The vaccines are “completley ineffective” as seen in the example of the crisis in Israel, where it was recently registered that 86% of the Covid-19 patients in hospitals are double-vaccinated. They do not prevent a person catching or passing on the virus.

Shockingly, the FDA knew in October 2020 of the two dozen possible adverse effects including death from the vaccines but chose when the vaccine program was launched in December to keep it a secret.

The vaccines are “highly dangerous” and according to the committee’s investigations 500.000 people may have died from adverse effects over the last eight months alone, which, they say, is a conservative estimate. The number of people suffering from adverse events from the vaccines continue to rise. In the USA the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) showed 14,000 deaths as of August 2021, but appears to have been blocked as of Septembr 2nd, according to media reports. As an MIT study in 2010 indicated, the VAERS system typically shows less than one percent of adverse events.

The Covid-19 pandemic and how it has been handled has polarized society around the world. The Corona Investigation Committee process and findings seek to reveal the alledged Covid-19 fraud and provide a pathway towards bringing those responsible to justice, call a halt to the unnecessary and dangerous vaccine program, and prompt a more level-headed approach to dealing with the health threat.

As Promised, The Truth About Covid-19… Part One


Its too bad we can’t go back to simpler times when cartoons and dinner were all we thought about. That was when there were no computers, cell phones, or ways to disseminate information in a heart beat. Now we move to much darker times that enlist the greed of the puppet masters that pull the strings of the naive and uneducated to form a message for the populace. Below I bring you one of the sadest events in our history. This includes, but is not limited to compromising our health, our freedom, and our dignity.

Over the course of the “Pandemic” businesses were shut down, jobs lost, and a media frenzie occured unlike anything we’d ever experienced.

The long awaited peer-reviewed report by Berlin based “Corona Investigation Committee” just released their much anticipated report. What many had feared has just come to light. The Covid-19 pandemic was planned, the virus man-made, with the end game to funnel people towards taking an experimental and potentially deadly vaccine.

German Attorney Reiner Fuellmich published a video on September 15th 2021 on behalf of the group of lawyers and medical experts. Dr. Reiner Fuellmich is an international trial lawyer licensed to practice in Germany and California with 27 years of practice. He has successfully sued Volkswagen and Deutsche Bank on behalf of the public.

Dr. Fuellmich and his worldwide network of lawyers under the Corona Investigation Committee has listened to hundreds of experts from every field of science. They have collected what they claim is undeniable evidence that the Covid-19 pandemic is in fact a planned criminal operation. According to Dr. Fuellmich a second Nuremberg trial may be needed to prosecute all who are complicit in this unprecedented crime against humanity.

His team is not alone. Thousands of health professionals, lawyers, researchers and journalists in a range of countries have been investigating the controversy and suspicions surrounding the pandemic and are working to prepare lawsuits to take government and health authority leaders to court to halt the vaccine rollout.

These moves have a sense of urgency as the US and governments around the world build up pressure to accept the vaccines.

This has been planned and “war-gamed” as seen in a number of reports. The pandemic simulation exercise of EVENT 201 held in New York, in October 2019, just prior to the emergence of a novel virus in Wuhan, China was just part of the beginning volley. As the report notes, Covid-19 is man-made and may have accidently or deliberately been released in China to spark the crisis.

1st. The PCR test: The claim that the PCR test is “not fit for purpose” in looking for viruses is backed up by the late Dr. Kary Mullis, who helped invent it. Even the CDC has admitted the failings of the PCR test, calling in January 2021 for health authorities to reduce the cycle threshold being used up to then 40-45 cycles. In August the CDC announced the use of the PCR test would end in December 2021.

As Dr. Fuellmich explains, “The failure of the PCR test to identify SARS-CoV-2 means the Covid-19 pandemic numbers, both the Covid-19 “cases” and deaths – are a sham. This is not to suggest there is no virus or pathogen infecting and killing people. But what it does suggest is the case and death numbers are heavily inflated.

2nd. The second lie is that asymptomatic carriers can spread the Covid-19 virus. As scientists have testified, this is a myth but one that appears to have been used by governments to ratchet up the fear surrounding the virus. The reality is that only those with symptoms can potentially spread the virus.

During the early stages of the pandemic Dr. Fuellmich describes a “massive medical malpractice”. What appeared to be happening was the sick infected  other residents sent from hospitials to elderly rest homes resulting in an unprecidented increase in death. However, most deaths as recorded from Covid-19 actually were a result of the wrong health protocols with dangerous drugs such as Remdesivir being perscribed leading to kidney failure and death.

In the Spring of 2020 doctors in the USA were told to only use the drug Remdesivir, a drug not approved by the FDA -on Covid-19 patients and were threatened with dismissal if they treated patients with Ivermectin and Hydroxycholorquine, both approved and long tested drugs with a good safety record, repurposed to tackle Covid-19. This threat to doctors still holds today, though doctors in small practices are having a high level of success in treating patients and preventing death using these “alternative” drugs, despite the misinformation propagated by the media.

I will continue with this Covid-19 pandemic blog next week. There is much more disturbing information to come.

PM-Perception Management


learn about yourself experience life

The term “Perception Management” has firmly entered the public lexicon. The Department of Defense even defines Perception Management in one of its manuals, so the military folks obviously take it very seriously. Many public relations firms now offer Perception Management, or “PM”, as one of their services.

PMs are not spin doctors because they don’t spin facts. They create facts and then sell them to the world as the truth. And that, to quote the venerable Mark Twain (who would’ve had a field day with the PM guys) is the difference between the lightening bug and lightening.

A major untruth can be established so quickly and overwhelmingly across the world that no digging by anyone after the fact can make a dent in the public consciousness that it actually isn’t true at all.

And that’s precisely what makes it so dangerous.

When I was a kid the first “PM” I could pin point was the “Warren Commission”. It concluded that President Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald and that Oswald acted entirely alone. It also concluded that Jack Ruby acted alone when he killed Oswald two days later.

Mark Lane’s book “Rush to Judgment” and Jay Epsteins book “Inquest” highlighted some of the weaknesses of the Warren Commission. One of the members on that commission was Alan Dulles. If you wan’t to know about one of the most unscrupulous men in the history of the United States just read “The Devils Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government” by David Talbot.

O’Reilly’s book “Killing Kennedy”, or “Breach of Trust: How the Warren Commission Failed the Nation and Why” are two other books to read regarding the facts that were never disseminated to the public. Most people recognize that the CIA was behind the killing of Kennedy. If you add up all the descrepancies the conclussion can only be that there was a cover up for political and secret government reasons to deceive the American People.

Why is it that the entire family of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are unanimous on one key point: James Earl Ray did not kill Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The pervasive surveillance and malicious disinformation campaign and open denunciations by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover laid the groundwork for their belief that he was the target of a plot.

In 1999 Coretta Scott King (Dr. King’s wife) filed a civil suit  to force more information into the public eye. A Memphis jury ruled that the local, state, and federal governments were liable for King’s death. The full transcript of the trial remains posted on the King Center’s website.

Even though these world changing events were swallowed hook, line, and sinker the world still seems to want to believe the very institutions that have deceived them in the past.

Now the present: Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, head of the Corona Investigation Committee states his findings available on YouTube: The Covid-19 pandemic was planned, the virus man-made, with the aim to funnel people towards taking an experimental and potentially deadly vaccine. Dr. Fuellmich is an international trial lawyer licensed to practice in Germany and California with 27 years of practice who has successfully sued large fraudulent corporations like Volkswagen and Deutsche Bank on behalf of the public.

Dr. Reiner Fuellmich published a report after studying the Covid-19 pandemic for over a year. He studied the origins, the restrictions in place, and the vaccine rollout. His worldwide network of lawyers under the Corona Investigation Committee has listened to hundreds of experts from every field of science. They have collected what is undeniable evidence that the Covid-19 pandemic is in fact a planned criminal operation. According to Dr. Fuellmich, a second Nuremberg trial may be needed, to prosecute all who are complicit in this unprecedented crime against humanity.

The summary of the committee’s findings may be shocking to the majority of people around the world who follow the government and media narrative on the pandemic. Not surprisingly, given Dr. Fuellmich’s high profile and the work he is doing, efforts have been made to discredit him and claim he is a conspiracy theorist, as has happened with many other proffessionals attempting to expose the fraud.

The narrative has never been about health.

The point as it relates to this blog is to shine a light on Perception Management.  The ability to falsify every aspect of a narrative for the benefit of the few that profit from the deception should be unveiled to the public to ultimately reveal the truth.

My next blog will itemize the startling research/investigation that has led to the unveiling of the disturbing truth behind Covid-19.






Discovery is One of the Best Parts of Life


Reading a book and finding the magic of a word smith who creates a vivid image is certainly a form of discovery. Each day we discover new sights and sounds that heighten our senses and elevate our experiences.

The beauty of discovery is that its not limited. Discovery can be in the form of an endless stream of consciousness that expands our horizons and activates all of our senses. The depth of learning about food, wine, other cultures, places, history, and even ourselves is a boundless treasure trove. This unearthing that lifts our baseline knowledge and better prepares us for the questions that arise from those discoveries is another layer of complexity.

Discovery unveils that which we can only appreciate based upon our research and development of the subject at hand. A food recipe has many different stages before the final product is produced. This production can only be successful if the correct steps are followed. There are no short cuts when in the mode of production and discovery

Food is certainly one example, wine is another. A cellar master has gone through an exhaustive educational and mentoring program before he or she attemps to produce a vintage on their own. The thrill of discovering techniques that have been passed down for generations is a skill unto itself. The terroir, quality of the grapes, the barrel the wine is stored in, the length of time stored, and the nuances that change the strategy from season to season is all part of the never ending cycle of discovery.

That same cycle of discovery can translate to anything. A walk down a trail that leads to the beautiful vista of a waterfall, a pond, a lake, or even the ocean, is an all encompassing sensory experience. Seeing a Uraguayan sunset, the waves from the Pacific ocean as they crash to shore, or a buttery cueball moon over an obsidian sky leads to further questions about the scope of our existence that goes beyond our limited comprehension.

Each discovery leads to this… how much me know, how much we don’t know, and how much we don’t even know what to ask. The inherent beauty of this becomes the excitement we nurture as each discovery becomes a layer of who we are based upon what we’ve experienced. Certainly the most interesting people are the ones that have “lived a little”.

The realm of possibility when you’re in the mode of discovery is a step into the best part of whom we are, our creative side. We look, listen, and take in the knowledge we can impart to those we love and care about. Excitement is an energy that makes everything seem different. The colors, sounds, and interactions provide a stepping stone into wanting more.

Enlightenment has become more than a movement born in the 18th century. It is a term that explores the avenue of enrichment celebrating human understanding and our relationship to the universe destined to improve our own condition.

The discovery of food, wine, other beverages, places, cultures, and our own relationship to all that surrounds us is a journey that lasts until our final breath. Each time (as human nature dictates) we compare the new experience to the old ones. Even though they may be different we have a strand of DNA that communicates these connections. This adds substance to our appreciation of that which we know, that which we can feel, and those we wish were with us to experience that unbriddled joy of discovery.
