I approach the world with extreme naivety.

My ambition is to graduate from ‘half-wit’ to become a ‘complete idiot’.  (The 10th Kingdom; The Man Who Knew Too Little.)


“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”

Understanding is like ‘The Stone’ (Eon, Greg Bear), or a Tardis (Dr Who; BBC) --- bigger on the inside than on the outside.

To achieve complete understanding is to discover the ‘Aleph’, (Borges) the point from which everything in the world can be seen, both present and past.

Heeding the wisdom of the spider (Native North American mythology), I keep a dream-catcher above my bead.

“All experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world
Whose margin fades forever and forever as I move.”

Moon River
Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me

(Moon river, wider than a mile)
(I'm crossin' you in style some day)
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after that same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me


Kitten plays with yarn,
Unravelling a tale too
Tight, needing chaos.


I dream my life, lost
In the story, wondering
What will happen next.


Lost Content

Fantasies unfold
Of dreams untold.
Where do lost dreams go?
The “land of lost content,
I see it shining plain.” ---
Too bright
That strange light,
That fey light
That calls and
Draws like Siren
Song, that turns to
Banshee wail
As the heart fills
With “an air that kills.”
“I am the man you killed,
my friend.”


Dreams flower, blossom
On my tree; blossom, leaf, fruit,
Rest --- Nature’s rhythm.


Snowflake on my hand
Butterfly cocoons back to
Worm, blot of water.

Cat asleep misses
Nothing.  Scientist awake
Misses everything.


Another ambition: to present my view of the world in a short, illustrated book suitable for children.


Once you learn to interpret dreams (not as easy as you might think) you can ‘talk’ to the Quew, (Pantodragon’s world in a nutshell, this forum).  The Quew is very old and has accumulated much wisdom.  No problem is too small, no dream too big or silly for the Quew.  In fact, as far as dreams are concerned, the bigger and sillier the better --- makes the Quew’s job more interesting!

My perspective of self naivety  is that ,  I feel as though I know nothing , all I think I know , I know nothing , is how I view myself in our world.
To wake up one morning   in a world  which  flows immensliy in love , as nature itself naively  flows,  is my dream

Could you be more specific?

No, that's more vague.

The spider that insists on building it's web on my car's wing mirrror doesn't strike me as especially wise. Maybe he's an adrenaline junkie.

That'll give them nightmares.

You may judge from the style of this piece that it is different in intention from a philosophical tract. There is much poetry and my intention is to offer ideas and concepts which may be subject for contemplation.  They should be treated rather as Zen buddhists use koans.  After contemplation, one comes to one's own understanding.  Explanations offered, definitions merely get in the way.

It is marvellous how truth and understanding can allay nightmares.  Nightmares are creatures of the dark.  Where light shines, nightmares die.
