an update from Mike C

The content of this on-going blog is evolving. I have been posting more and more links to other sites. I am very cautious when I create these links, I feel strongly that the info needs to be relevant and interesting. If I am recommending you read an article or listen to a podcast, I feel it should be worthwhile.

This is a recent change for me and this blog. Just a few months ago I would have avoided doing this, but now it seems that I'm readjusting how I'm sharing this stuff.

The internet is overflowing with information, and if I find a gem in that chaos I'll post it here. I created a MISSION STATEMENT a while back, and creating interesting links seems to fit with that statement just fine.

Hi Mike,
After casually following your blog over the last couple of years, starting, I think, not too long after you began, I'm finally getting around to saying thanks.

In my humble opinion, what you're doing is right on the mark; although I have to laugh every time you make apologies for "mumbling" on your webcasts. Dude, you have an incredible radio voice, and a really interesting way of, not really interviewing a guest, but just having a conversation. I've enjoyed every one of your podcasts I've listened to so far.

And this is coming from someone who, although not an experiencer, sometimes feels a little tinge of jealousy that I'm not one of the "chosen"; but at the same time feels overwhelming relief at *not* being one.

Anyway, keep doing what you do so well!

I second Bill B.'s praise. I also want to applaud the new linking trend. A while back, I emailed you asking for audio blog recommendations and, when I didn't hear back, assumed that my request might have been inappropriate somehow. What you're doing now, though, is even better. Thank you!

Tim - Yes, I did get your email a whole back. Sorry I didn't respond, but I have been overwhelmed with desk work.

Thanks for the kind words.

When I started this site, it was meant to be a very public way for me to grapple with my own experiences. Well, part of the overall experience is to search for answers, and along the way - I'm finding some really interesting stuff.

Mac Tonnies had a blog called Post-human Blues (still on-line) and he would link to some wonderful articles. It was really a joy to dig thru, and I miss it terribly. I feel like I can share whatever little gems I find if they especially prescient.

(I finally created an internet ID that would work with blogger! No more lost comments!)

Everything you do is wonderful. Your links are great, and I'm a regular listener of your podcasts (although with the comments not working, who knows how many I thought I posted that just never popped up?) and very much enjoy your interviews.

I love that blue rose Lucretia.

Lucretia - You crossed the Wordpress / Blogger divide!

Alas - I am not sure how many things I wrote never made it to YOUR blog...

A few of my comments here,seem to go missing,but that may be just editorial preference on Mike's part.-)
