My Bio
As you sit and gaze at the stones standing as if at attention, you are to identify (at your leisure) with one of them. One represents who you are and what you are, but only you can know which one of them is "you". When you associate with that stone, you must realize that one day, one moment, that stone will fall. And so you will too, so take in the moment and know that this life is temporary...all must fall so enjoy right now.

Hey all.  I have been to the doctor and have a bit of an infection that has to be taken care of with antibiotics and some rest.  Need a week or so to recuperate.  After that, I'm coming back.  I guess it's time to take better care of myself. *************************************************************** Here is a NEW interview I did in 2013 with wearenotzombies.tv  out of Mexico. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtTQbPZuKQE http://www.wearenotzombies.tv/john-shaver/ This is a really well done interview, excellent quality and great shots.  Tells you everything about myself and what I'm doing.  I also had long hair here as opposed to my sh
