1,000th Phil’s Place Posting
I can now realize how much I have put into this little journal. It started out to be just a few stories, like I was writing in letters to Marian. Here we are, 7 years and 1,000 entries later.

It was/is also a place where I can store recollections of interesting moments from my past in what is turning out to be an interesting and eclectic journey toward enlightenment.

I soon discovered that I could add pictures and video’s. This was a revelation. If the subject was Thomas Edison, I could include his picture, and possibly an appropriately relative video.
Then, I learned to film, score, and upload my own videos. This prompted an interest in better cameras which focused my attention on better photography and learning more about the subjects in the pix and videos I produce.
The need for interesting topics and useful information led to discovering the valuable treasures hidden in the clamor of commerce, sleaze, and ignorance that permeates the interweb.
Pretty ‘circus’ rose
I have learned to navigate the sulphuric miasma of cyberspace, and how to avoid the ever present shoals of malignant mayhem and simplistic conspiracies. I know where to find real information on topics of history, space, art, music, science, biology and much, much, more.
This little journal has opened a portal of discovery and a stimulus to my intellectual and spiritual quest for knowledge.
I hope you can accompany me as we continue adding to this collection of artifacts and curiosities. So far, we have explored everything from how to peel a banana, to the vertical analysis of the Gospels as compared with Homer’s Odyssey.
If nothing else, you might enjoy my photography.
