blogging and the self
It's impossible to create a linear narrative on a blog. These postings should come in a nice tidy and logical order, but they don't. If this stuff seems interesting, you might need to dig around a little bit. The puzzle pieces are all mixed up - even to me.
This blog came on-line in March of 2009, this was a time when I was swallowed up in a sort of existential crisis. The tension in my "voice" is palpable in these early posts. This site originally started as a way for me to try and make sense of some weird personal experiences. I did it as a kind of sociological experiment, I wanted to wrestle with some challenging memories in a very public forum. But, as time went on I started adding other things I found interesting or relevant to the core topics.
A blog, by it's very nature, should be read backwards, the first post is in the last position. I have heard from a few folks who have started at the very first post and read the blog in it's entirety. That's a pretty big undertaking, but from the feedback I've gotten, they found the narrative that emerged was fascinating.
This is a listing of personal experiences, in a tidy linear format. For anyone new to this site, I usually direct them to the TIMELINE as a good place to start.
For your benefit, the timeline is awash in links, so you can easily get to the relevant stories.
There is a label on certain posts where I share my DIRECT EXPERIENCES. These are real-deal incidents that are relevant to my overall "involvement" with this elusive phenomenon. These experiences certainly seem to imply something, I'll leave it at that.
At this point, I've posted well over 160 hours of audio interviews. The focus has been the UFO abduction phenomenon. There are recorded conversations with researchers and experiencers. There are other interviews on related subjects, like synchronicity and UFOs.
You'll find ALL of my audio interviews posted on separate site HERE. This page is organized for ease of use.
There is an iTunes page for these podcasts. You can also use the long alphabetical list (and direct links) in the right-hand side-bar on every page of this blog.
Along the right and left side side-bars I've included a series of posts that I think are especially relevant. I encourage you to peek at these if you are at a loss on what might be interesting.
There is a search engine (at the right) set up specifically to search this blog.
This (left) is the kind of thing I want people to read! This essay, THE EVOLUTIONARY TRIAD was a kind of abandonment into sychro-weirdness.
Yes, blogging is a kind of digital chaos, but I do my best to keep this site tidy. I hope this helps, at least a little bit.
