So you’re wondering, (at least I hope that you are) why I’m doing this and what I want to accomplish.

Here’s the story in a nutshell.  Recently I was brought up short by my inclusion in a wonderful project called Socrates Spoke, ( check it out at http://www.SocratesSpoke.com) where I was interviewed about what I was passionate about.  Rather than giving the interviewer, Casey Miller my press release version of things I just spit out the thing that was really true, that I had not acknowledged in my heart till that day.  Instead of answering the question “What are you passionate about?” by saying, “my art and design work” I said I was “passionate about helping others”.

Now, anyone who has known me for more than 15 minutes knows that’s true of me.  But it astounded me nonetheless.  I had thought myself pretty self aware, but here I was being struck dumb by a revelation within myself that should have been all too obvious.

So I started thinking, and thinking, and thinking some more.  I was wondering what I could do in a larger scale sense to be of assistance to those I know and those who want help.

Then I shifted focus a bit and started to think about the huge morass of problems cultural, political, spiritual, ecological and economic that we are all of us humans facing today.

So much of what I have learned I realized could be applied to every day events and people to help mitigate the stress of the many changes that we are all in.  And so, I found myself sitting before my laptop one night, turned it on, opened photobooth and started talking.

The video you see here is the result.  Badly lit and too quiet as it is.  And as many friends have said, lacking my usual sparkle.  lol  In that at least I can assure you it will never happen again.  I’m a pretty upbeat, gregarious guy by nature.

So all that said, I’m hoping here to get a dialog, and an ongoing help system going that can give us common folks a leg up in this world of confusion.

We’ve only got ourselves to rely on, and frankly that’s a hell of a lot of wonderful people.  If we choose to, we can change the course of our own future,and the world’s too, to create a place that is better for ALL of our Human Family.

So join me if you dare and we’ll go find a new pathway for our lives and our communities.  We only get to live once at a time you know!

My Best, Paul
