~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Be like Water
Formless yet Resolute
Soft yet Relentless
Clear and Still
Seeking the Lowest to
Achieve the Highest
In doing so
You find the Tao
And will never be Stopped

We are ONE
  Q0046.jpg


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

" A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstein

About Me I'm an isotope geochemist by day - and a poet by night. I love this planet, and am happiest with my bare feet touching the ground and a good storm swirling around me.

I have a passion in me that can't be extinguished. If this is the only life we have - I intend live it with joy and reckless abandon!

I was once a corporate banker -- and then I woke up one day and realized the folly of wasting my life in drudgery. So I gave it all up and started again. Now my job takes me to the arctic (at the moment) where I can wander through the tundra in places that are still unvisited by humans. Sometimes the silence can touch your soul.

I do research on the geochemistry / isotopic composition of natural archives like water, trees, sediments ... even birds (lol it's just a small test - I don't harm anything). I analyse these samples in an effort to learn about how our climate and environment are changing and how we can prevent (or adapt to) what's ahead.

On any given day I can be up to my hips in mud, hiking a mountain, climbing through lava tubes, or hooking nets of gear to the underside of a hovering helicopter.

I have camped with wolves, slept with foxes, and looked countless polar and black bears straight in the eye. To some of you this all may sound horrifc ... but to me that's grabbing life and giving it a passionate kiss!
