I was born in 1962, the TV / Space Age.
Baptized as an Anglican, I didn’t think much about God or spiritual beings as a kid. Leisurely 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 picked up some basic coding as earthpages.org and the manuscript behind earthpages.ca began to take shape.
I also hung out at remaindered and secondhand bookstores and steadily filled 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 drawn to Catholicism and converted in 2001. I explored both priestly and monastic vocations but soon realized that neither was a good fit.
Other interests include guitar, piano, songwriting/production, photography, media, TV binge-watching, and cycling. I’m also blogging an autobiography thru music called Reelin’ in the Years.
My primary focus, however, is God, whom I see as wholly other but immanent.
