Provocative and at times incendiary, “Escaping Culture – Finding Your Place in the World” challenges readers to rethink societal hierarchies, culture, race, ethnicity, spirituality, and identity? How do we find meaning and purpose? How do we interact with the world around us? How do we control, enhance and empower our lives? How do we find our place in the world?

In a socially fractured world filled with people seeking answers to higher consciousness and meaning, it offers as testimony, an authentic telling of cultural rebellion, humor, and heart rendering anecdotes. And of life discovered, marinated in an introspective stew of indulgence, compassion, and redemption.

Nowhere Man

On Friday, August 10th at 7:32 p.m. a Horizon 76 seat Air Turbo Prop Q400 took off from Sea-Tac airport. At the controls, Richard Russell, a 29-year-old Horizon Air ground crew member with no previous flight training.


Looting the Political Left

“Instead of fighting for the victory that was stolen from him, he praised the people who stole the victory from him. He was afraid to win. He didn’t want to win, and that’s why he’s never questioned his defeat.”

- Dmitry Babich, Political Analyst, Sputnik International, commenting on Bernie’s Sander’s Presidential campaign.

In my attempts to understand the failure of the left to capitalize on the 2016 progressive awakening, I’ve not come across a more concise critique of Bernie Sanders, and by extension his political and social media operatives, faux leftists’ stealthily shepherding disillusioned progressives back into the Democratic Party political tent.


More Than Nothing

Think Aja by Steely Dan. Classic-rock fusion: cultured; rock with harmony; driven yet laid back; half-time percussion with subtle high-hat nuance. Funky guitar; distinctive keyboard and saxophone riffs with intermittent double-time back beats thrown in for good measure. A seamless fusion of rock and jazz; a composition living between genres: old school and new wave. That’s my brother, Ric.  […]


Colosseum

Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the national anthem sends a powerful message – to increase the volume and channel dissenting voices in the direction of a deaf (and dumb) nation.


Silver Bullet

Progressives seemingly can’t distinguish the difference between political party loyalty and political leverage, rendering their crusade transfixed between harnessing the power of an emergent movement and shaping it.  It’s paralysis by analysis.  So desperate are Progressives for the direction they’re unable to distinguish sheepdogs from liberators and prophets from profiteers. Exploited, abandoned, and betrayed by […]


Alternative Facts – Women’s March on Washington

As impressive as the Women’s March on Washington seemed – it wasn’t organic or an inspired grassroots movement. Democratic Party establishment brokers astroturfed it.


An Elaborate Hustle

How many of you follow “The Young Turks?”  Sorry, you’ve been played.  Unless of course, you insist on getting news analysis from yet another assemblage of self-appointed “progressive activists” interpreting left-leaning political discourse.  


Off With Their Heads

T he Queen of Chaos is dead.  Politically, speaking.  The only thing left to do – to build a truly progressive agenda – is to guillotine (politically speaking, of course) the remaining members of her royal court.


State of Grace

If nature, as Ralph Waldo Emerson righteously proclaimed, is elemental and comprised of a commodity; beauty; language; and discipline.  Then ART, it follows, is nature refined and emblematic of; and, by the MIND of man. ***Petra, our family’s Abuela (grandmother) – Yaqui Native-American –                    Painting, Dorothy […]
