     Welcome to my Internet home!   This website is a compilation of some of my  life experiences and a photo documentation of places where I've been.  I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and please, sign the guestbook so that I know that you stopped by for a visit! 


     Back in the late '90s, I was immersed in terrible depression; it lasted for years.  I probably needed professional help at the time, but I was able to work through it on my own.  One of the things I did that I found to be very therapeutic was to write my life's story.  I concentrated for days on dredging up old and forgotten memories about people, places and things I had encountered during life, and wrote them down in a notebook.  Once I was satisfied that I had enough information, I began writing my story.  The experience was wonderful!  The more I wrote, the more I felt I knew who I am.  I discovered myself.  The ancient Oracle of Delphi had an inscription written:  "Know Thyself".  Writing my story helped me to accomplish that effort. 


     I find that creating websites can be basically the same thing; it's a review of one's life ... one's values.  This is the third website I have created:  The first was a geocities collection of web pages called High Desert Pirate.  Geocities has since been deleted by Yahoo.  The second website was motivated by my love for Las Vegas, NV: 


     And now, there's this website--which will pull a little material from the old Desert Pirate; mix in vacation and travel pictures while weaving bits and pieces of my life into the fabric; and borrowing some from my unpublished book.  I hope you enjoy looking at my personal website.  Please sign the guestbook!
