  • I've been spending the day hiking in Utah, and having fascinating discussions with a bunch of great people. Futurists, scientists, geeks. A six mile hike today through Bell Canyon, and a trip to Goblin Valley, with bizarre rock formations. And now lucky that I'm here with some serious technogeeks, as one of them installed a wireless network in the motel so I can be online.

  • I think I have a renewed understanding of how important it is for me to assist people in more fully living out their dream in the moment, doing what they're here to do. That's to a large degree what NCN is about, for me at least: helping people be more actualized, as individuals and groups, doing their thing. And I'd like to highlight and celebrate when it happens.

    That is a really marvelous sculpture Flemming! DOes it have a name? What a landscape! Calls to the soul...thank you so much for the inspiration. Nice to know that you can be online, pretty much, whenever and wherever you wish it! :)

    NCN is having a positive influence on my/our project. I want you to know that. As for the Earth Sanctuary (Avalon Ecoproject), you're delivering! :-)

    Well if any place can expand the mind, Utah is my choice. Vaxen if you have never seen Utah, than make a point of it. In all my travels there is nothing like Bryce, Arches, and my favorite Zion. And the above picture is just one of many thousands (no exaggeration) in Utah.  

    27 Oct 2002 @ 09:04 by invictus : I love Utah...
    I love Scotland more though :). Anyway, yeah, the crazy interesting people I meet at NCN help me too... maybe to make the fire under my arse a little hotter. So it even helps those of us without huge projects (wish I had one for you... in a few years :) ).

    An amazing variety landscapes in Utah. Really breathtaking. I don't know if the above formation has a name of its own. It probably does. It is at the entrance to Goblin Valley, which is a whole valley full of many smaller formations like that. Looks like Mars or something. The one on the picture is huge.

    They look like guardians there, I wonder which North American Tribe inhabited that area? Ain't been to Utah, but been to New York and I can say ascended the Twin Towers just as awesome. That reminds me there was an English band called the Utah Saints....maybe they were Mormons lol.

    I'm not sure if any indian tribes were in the Goblin Valley, but a little further west, along the Fremont River, there are many signs of what is only known as the {link:http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/ut/namr_cap.htm|Fremont People}. They've left many petroglyphs, and cliff dwellings in the {link:http://www.infowest.com/Utah/colorcountry/Nationalparks/Capitolreef/capitol.html|Capital Reef} area. But they seem to have left the area around the year 1300.
