Growing up on a dairy farm in rural southeastern Indiana ,Gary was raised in a conservative Christian environment and looked forward to a life much like his ancestors had lived. The two car garage, white picket fence and 2.5 kids was his life’s dream. Due to some twists of fate his life changed suddenly and a different path was taken.
At this time,he began to question everything he was brought up to believe, his political views, his religious and spiritual beliefs and every value society places on us as members of the human race. During his Vision Quest, which lead him to Egypt, Australia, the Canary Islands, Belize and most of the United States, he reevaluated and examined everything he believed in.
Having always had an interest in things of a spiritual and esoteric nature this was without question a predetermined path. Through and because of his interest in photography he was able to study and document many ancient cultures throughout the world, in particular the Australian Aborigine, the Maya, and the Ancient Egyptians.
Although his travels have changed his perception of life and many of the spiritual values he once held, one belief remains unchanged.
His belief in the basic conservative core values of life that have been carried down through the ages from time immemorial.His belief in a Supreme Being or God have not faltered.
Time and time again history has shown that when a people or civilization fall from a belief in their God and basic common sense values , their way of life ceases to be. Let’s not let that happen to us.

What Are We Going To Do
America is in serious trouble, many no longer realize what values and principles our country is founded on and have strayed from the common sense and creative thinking of our ancestors, how can we fix it?
The Wisdom of our Ancestors
There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.
Obama's Re-election:Good or Bad
Most thinking people are dismayed that President Obama was reelected for a second term of office. Many are worried that America as we know it will be no longer, falling into socialism and become a welfare state. Many fear worse that we will fall to communism or Marxism.
The situation doesn’t look good; from all indications that is exactly where we are headed. But be not dismayed.

Reality:A Matter of Perception
I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions.
