After a small success in society I went around the world and through various cultures, including an overland odyssey from England to India, and returned to California a changed person.
I was no longer willing to play the game of winners and losers, now I needed more from myself.
I moved to an old sheep ranch in the coastal mountains of Northern California, and lived quietly there with my lady, Diane, and the seasons rolled around, and my view of the world changed and I saw deeper into myself.
Then in the sudden silence, I heard the song of the Earth.
We are one, it sang, all of us included.
