The Sanctuary, Fall 2016. Bobcaygeon.
Good Day friends and Compatriots.........My name is Steve Clarke or Houndog or Houndogsteve. You may wonder where the epithet Houndog comes from......well, like everything there is a story attached. Many moons ago I played my first real live paying gig at the Gamiing Summer Lakeshore Music Festival. As my good friend and singing partner Charlie and I were about to get up on stage, the Em Cee asked how he should introduce us and in a flash of inspired panic I blurted out "Catfish Charlie and Houndog Steve" and it kind of stuck from then on in. It kind of suits because it seems whatever I do it entails having my nose to the ground sniffing out the story behind the story. I love a good mystery and cut my teeth on John Le Carre` , Dick Francis, Clive Custler, Bernard Cornwall and the like. This love of Mystery has led me into the Mystery of Life and the Quantum Holodeck in or on which we all reside........just how does that work? I`m an explorer of every kind and jump at the chance of an adventure or investigation. To that end I have started something I`ve had in mind for a bit now and that is this web/blog site as a way to share some of my adventures, insights, video projects, Ideas and work towards creating the World wide Agora, the concept that we can all live together and separately at the same time. I have studied the Ideology of conflict as outlined in the movie "Things to come" I find it strange to say the least that there should be this either / or mentality when it is plain that as human beings, we use both strategies to solve our problems or maybe it`s fitting that the 1% as they are referred too should want us to be in a collective and them in an individualist as a way to try and engineer this mythical utopian society, this Federation of Planets type of World they want us to live in. The Tower of Bable is a prophetic tale to take heed. This one way, European model , single currency, standardized food and products and buildings and people and Central Planning it just does`nt work and will be torn asunder not by God but by it`s own internal flawed dynamic and the assumption that you can fool all of the people all of the time. Here we are in the middle of the beginning of this tidal shift, as the internet, through the idea of open sharing which has pushed the waking up process into high gear to the point where you can almost hear the green shoots grow. That said there is a lot of murky water to wade through yet and I plan to be here to see, video and comment on it......Be well my fellow sojourners. See you on the flip side!
