This site is a repository for things I find inspiring or contemplative or introspective or instructive or educational or amusing or quirky or sometimes even troubling.

I work on the site as time and motivation permit.  It's a lot of work, and not the kind I find enjoyable or satisfying, so at times the work goes slow.  I am presently working on the "Preparedness" and the "Beliefs & Myths" and "Links" areas.  I have great plans for these areas and hope to have lots of useful information on them soon.

The "Beliefs & Myths" area contains a collection of quotes and sayings I gathered over many years and compiled in a 3-link binder I called "Richard's Book of Beliefs and Myths".  I still refer to it often, and decided to include it here.  It's fairly lengthy, so it's going to take awhile to get it all published.

There is an Update Log here where you can see what I've been working on.  If you have any comments, either good or bad, I'd like to hear them  The email address to contact me is in the left column of this page.

If you like compilations of eclectic kinds of stuff, you might enjoy browsing around.

The name of the site comes from Sir Thomas Browne's quote: "All the wonders you seek are within yourself."


I'm still looking for a place like this...

"The power-drenched beauty of the dawn at Tishiding in Sikkim - that glittering spectacle of fire dancing on ice
- it must seem to the weariness traveler a lavish reward for the discomfort of two days' journey through waterlogged and leach-infested jungles.  But to me it was more than this.  It had come to hold an inner significance, impossible not to sense, but very hard to describe.  I even thought of it as a kind of spiritual baptism, a miraculous soothing of body and mind, to be daily renewed as long as I stayed on the mountain."

The opening lines from "The Wheel of Life, The Autobiography of a Western Buddhist", by John Blofeld.
