Hey, I’m Jonathan. Speak-a-little-French is my Native American name - Rolling "Middle-earth Cassiopeia" W. I'm a psychologist, philosopher, explorer of culture and researcher with an interest in history, ancient civilizations, psychic phenomenon, ESP and the occult - UFOs and aliens - secret societies and hidden information. Anything New-age or health related piques my interest. Past lives, hypnosis, reincarnation and spirituality have been a lasting passion as has the dream-world and drug experiences. The arts, of all varieties, rejuvenate my soul and keep me sustained.

Totem

There is a breeze off the ocean
The sand foams on the wave
A tranquillity sits like an angel on the evening
I pick up a stick of driftwood
And draw my totem on the soft beach sands

Born on TV

“All the world’s a stage”*

On television I am but an actor:
Scream, cry, be a baby forever.
There is no audience on television.
No one to respond to, nothing to relate to
Plastic bag and dustbin people
That let me pout garbage into

Crossed Lines

Do you think of drawing lines
To see where they go,
Not architects lines?
He is a sorta designer
But that is not what I meant.
There should be curves and
Even squiggles
If you’re brave enough to let go.

Comforting

Glossy magazines with colour spreads of the summer collection.
Soap operas, same comforting characters week in week out.
Changing channel. Pet’s world. Chef’s delight. Dolphins.
Interiors. Home, my dear cocoon.
I lavish my sanctuary with cool soot...
