The Hermitage



My place is in the Plaza of the Mind.

I get overwhelmed by the freewheeling flow of opinion that the internet provides and so I try to shield myself from it as much as possible, especially all the negativity which at times begins to resemble toilet room scrawl, and think of my haven as a hermit may think of his mountain retreat.

This is an excerpt of one of my letters to the Reverend Ivan Stang. I believe that it best describes my Inner Channel philosophy with an honesty and conciseness I have never before been able to articulate.

I am thankful to have this refuge from where I might survey what is going on in the world yet still be able to control my level of information intake.

I am even more thankful to have visitors come to see me in my hermitage from time to time and hope that they never cease to visit.
