I have been fascinated since I was child by the paradoxes of life It is excruciating and exhilarating to sit at the pinnacle of a paradox and contemplate its disparate truths. The ever-shifting boundary between dark and light, between yin and yang, between life and death. The boundary that forms no division except in our imperfect understanding. It is at this infinitesimal point that the meaning of life resides. It is elusive, ephemeral, ineffable—all the complex, unknowable words that I love.
I am traveling two paths in exploring the paradox. Some of you have between reading post on Reflections on Halcyon Pond, my contemplations on life. This site, Beyond Halcyon Pond is where are travelogs that explore the paradoxes of human culture—differences that lead us into mortal battle, but which are underlain by identical dreams and desires.
I invite you to join me on this journey into the mystery…
My hope is that through it, you will join me in celebrating the paradox that is Life.
