About Secret Shade

Welcome to my Secret Shade. A safe abode where I can ponder and wonder about the workings of the wondrous yet weirdly wonky worlds we inhabit. We all need some Secret Shade from time to time, and this is mine.

I’m not saying I’m right about anything (well not everything anyway). I’m not claiming to know better than anyone else (well not everyone else). Each article represents a state of mind, a partial perspective, a reflection of just that moment in time.

The multiple personalities that reside in this particular bodymind of flesh and bones seem to hold a variety of opinions. This gets confusing. What you read is the perspective of the opinion that won on the day the article was written.

Join me as we playfully and critically explore what it means to be alive and burdened with the compulsion to ask big questions. Join me as we try to make sense of culture, spirit, self development, non-ordinary states of consciousness, meditation, mind, and anything else fascinating about this universe and any others we may or may not inhabit.

Some people say I think too much. Here is the damning proof. Thanks for reading.

  3. “Some people say I think too much and I suspect this to be true.” I have also been accused of this, but primarily from people who don’t think at all. 🙂 What’s too much, what’s too little?
    Whether a curse or a blessing, thinking is what we do, might as well do it well.
    I am enjoying your blog!
