Strong Medicine has moved

I have done something insane. I have uprooted myself and thrown myself half the world away (or therabouts) on what basically amounts to complete whimsy. Friends- I have relocated to Colorado Springs, Colorado, approximately 1,300 miles away from everyone and everything I have ever loved, lived, cried, sung, reveled, sweated, bleeded, and become familiar with over 27 years. THE BEAUTIFUL SOUTHEAST: Its noble heritage- it's mountains, streams, fjords, cultures, farms, breezes, smells, textures... everything now is an experiment compounded by the complete unknown.

Thus far, the atmosphere is breathable. The gravity is slightly skewed, and the colors aren't normal.

We go now to explore the corners of this Brave New World. I shall return, with tourist trinkets for all who follow my edicts and my teachings. Keep the torch blazing, friends, and know that I WILL SPILL MY BEER FOR YOU, and then stoop, taking the tip of my finger, dabbing some of the spilt brew, and ANOINTING MY FOREHEAD IN YOUR HONOUR.

Know this: "This I do, for you". My growth will be your growth, my adventures yours, my aches and pains and trials and tribulations mine alone.


I leave fair Knoxville with a final stencil, cut the day before I stepped on the plane to take me to the moon:

“Leave the world to those who hanker after it, as they leave the Afterlife to its seekers. And be in this world as the bee: it eats only good, produces only good, and when it rests upon anything it neither ruins it nor deflowers it.”
