Disappointed to announce that this event is CANCELLED. Noonaween accommodation has changed hands and no longer available. On top of that we are in a climate of uncertainty.


So many distractions are now shut down. We are advised to quarantine, "hunker down like a heiffer in a hail storm." No idea how long the recovery will be. This pandemic will have a long tail. There will probably be no return to "normal." Our challenge then is to determine what the new normal will be. Maybe the notion of "normal" will become archaic.


I am going to pass some of the time in writing about orthobionomy in this web book. I invite any and all to study and play along. The goal is to promote orthobionomy as salvational way of being in the world, to discover/determine what the post-pandemic world will be. HERE is a good place to start.

I am I and my circumstance;

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

I was born. I am always a vessel for something other than myself. The self is only a

vehicle for Foreign matter which comes from elsewhere and is destined to go on

elsewhere without me, whether it's words, smells, vision                                                      ––EMANUELE COCCIA  Metamorphoses

The Story Teller

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics,  clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.

      —JEANETTE WINTERSON                Gut Symmetries

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                      ROBERT MCCALL



Yes, there is beauty

There is love

There is joy.

All you who suffer from

the world's miseries

Defend them.
