It’s been a long time

Hahaha I’m sitting here wondering where to start and truth is I can’t think. The mind is blurry and unfocused. It happens when you have too much work or too little though in this case it’s certainly a result of too much. That sentence was way too long. Yes, yes…I should get on to important things like where I’ve been hiding. Sort of all over the internet actually, under various names and colorful masks. It feels strange to return to the website but let’s just say a new friend gave me a bit of a mental push.

What have I been up to? Writing, writing, writing and creating – living in the worlds in my head. I’m in the process of editing two books (novels) and writing a third. I wish I could tell you more about it but I am keeping them a secret for now. Hopefully you will find out soon enough.

My life. Magic. Need I say more? I am truly glad to be on this earth. I am doing all the things that I want to do and for once there are no obstacles, no mental blocks. I know what I have to do and I’m getting it done. Feels great. I hired a personal trainer who’s been kicking my ass into shape and shedding some pounds.

Rob and I will be in Europe for two weeks. We’ll be visiting Asissi, Lourdes, Dubrovnik and Rome. It’s a tour with the very well known inspirational author Wayne Dyer that visits miraculous places. After we’ll be spending 5 glorious days in the outskirts of Rome. I got us a room in Villa Grazioli which is a Renaissance palazzo owned by a Cardinal. At $145 a night it is the deal of the century and all of you know how much I love a good travel deal.

Can’t say I got a bargain on the airfare. High season to Europe was very expensive and Alitalia customer service has really screwed us so we’re still trying to figure out our tickets. Both our names were misspelled at some point and my credit card got charged like  three times.

I’ve gotten knee deep into physics books of late as a result of writing my sci-fi novel and it’s been a very interesting journey. One book in particular has really blown my mind in terms of asserting things I sort of always believed in but had no words for. Turns out there is an entire branch of physics dedicated to it. The theory is called Holographic Paradigm and the book is called the Holographic Universe.

The Universe as a Hologram
by Michael Talbot

In 1982 a remarkable event took place.At the University of Paris a research team led by physicist Alain Aspect performed what may turn out to be one of the most important experiments of the 20th century. You did not hear about it on the evening news. In fact, unless you are in the habit of reading scientific journals you probably have never even heard Aspect’s name, though there are some who believe his discovery may change the face of science. Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them. It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billion miles apart.Somehow each particle always seems to know what the other is doing. The problem with this feat is that it violates Einstein’s long-held tenet that no communication can travel faster than the speed of light. Since traveling faster than the speed of light is tantamount to breaking the time barrier, this daunting prospect has caused some physicists to try to come up with elaborate ways to explain away Aspect’s findings. But it has inspired others to offer even more radical explanations. University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect’s findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram.

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to meet Andrei in NYC. We headed to the Met and talked for some time about web design and all kinds of stuff. Contrary to the image and the stereotype, I found Andrei to be refreshing and down to earth. We got on like we knew each other forever, it was pretty awesome. There was no awkwardness. He’s smart and funny and someone I am looking forward to getting to know.

This Saturday I am headed to the Dances of Vice Masquerade in Morningside Castle in the city. I have a crazy outfit and a new top hat so that should be fabulous fun! Last event I attended was the Steampunk Ball back like two years ago. I love dressing up and the drama of a bygone era so this should be something to remember.

:P It’s warm and beautiful and the snow is gone! Time to enjoy the sun, let down the hair and soak it all up. I will be back soon, I promise.
