    Heroes & Myth

    Many of us are drawn to great epics - tales of heroism, heroes, feats of legend and sacrifice. We are enthralled by worlds where moral imperatives override fear and doubt, where simple and definitive actions have the desired results, without the interfering beast of reality...

    I Love Swords.

    And bows and arrows and javelins and many other things. Since I am not able to fight, I write books and stories and stuff about it. It's the next best thing, I suppose.

    Don't Dream It, Be It....

    as you can tell from my avatar, I don't dream it, I live it.... but as for the battles within, as so many use that analogy.  I look to billy boy's great soliloquy from Hamlet - To be or not to be.....you can look up the rest, but read the whole thing and try to understand...

    Ninja

    I would've loved it if I was born as a ninja in feudal Japan. How great would it have been to grow up as a boy in one of the legendary hidden villages of the Iga or Koga clans. Trained from infancy to become great warriors and assassins. Masters of stealth and technique. I...

    Spiritual Warrior

    I've had some tough experiences in life.  But what's really helped me pull through is a martial ethic of perseverance and strength.   I take a martial art (kung fu) and the physical exercises have so much analogy to real life.  We do stretches, lots of pushups...
