Born in 1962, the TV / Space Age, I was baptized as an Anglican but didn’t think much about God or spiritual beings as a kid.
Timeless summers were spent at Go-Home Bay and winter weekends at Craigleith Ski Club.
Like Sigmund Freud, I saw the biblical God as a projection. And like many people, I naïvely believed that science was the only pathway to truth.
After graduating, I delved into mythology, the arts, popular science, and the history of ideas. And I learned basic coding as earthpages.org and the manuscript behind earthpages.ca began to take shape.
I also hung out at remaindered and secondhand bookstores, filling several bookshelves with excellent reference works, old and new alike. This was before Wikipedia and I just wanted to know everything.
In the early 90s, I was spiritually drawn to Catholicism and, after one failed attempt, eventually converted in 2001. I explored both priestly and monastic vocations but soon realized that neither was a good fit.
Other interests include guitar, piano, music production, watching quality TV series and news, photography, cycling and, of course, blogging.
My primary focus, however, is God, whom I see as wholly other but immanent.
