And in the very real forgotten but never forgotten realm of right now, there is a battle going on, and there always has been. And it’s not for ‘things’, it’s to govern the mind/ment, and we won’t win a thing if we don’t raise the vibration here.
On February 19 – 21st, 2016 the twentieth annual Outdoor Adventure Show in Toronto brought together three hundred travel agents, equipment manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and magazine publishers, photographers and writers at the International Convention Center beside the airport.
Symphony Nova Scotia’s special sci-fi concert that Hallowe’en evening was hosted by John Rhys-Davies, a Welsh actor who played Gimli the dwarf in the film trilogy “The Lord of the Rings”, and our author George Burden had the chance to meet him!
Ang Thong National Marine Park is one of those sights you just shouldn’t miss if you go to Koh Samui, Koh Phang or Koh Tao in the Bay of Thailand. The price was not exorbitant, the ship was suitable and the lunch was nutritious. If you go to southern Thailand, you definitely need to put this park on your list of places to see.
The Black House is a campus of 8 or 10 buildings that holds an eclectic collection of macabre, sombre and surreal art. The artist certainly brought out the dark side of humanity when he furnished the place with his art. Thought provoking, entertaining, amusing, sensual, primitive – good fun. Take your camera!
With a population of a few hundred souls it may not seem a lot different from other small communities dotting the island – except for one small detail: 650 million-year-old mega-fossils that grace the shoreline.
The White Temple near Chiang Rai, Thailand, is an extraordinary piece of Buddhist architecture. Although the temple shares many of the same architectural constructs found in all other Buddhist temples, this temple is dramatically unique in almost every other respect. This stunning, twinkling temple has a fairy-tale look to it that belies its deep religious purpose. Tourists in northern Thailand should put the White Temple on their ‘must see’ list of places to visit.
While it sounds like it should be located in the fictional land of Westeros (from the hit HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ for the uninitiated), this exquisite Victorian B&B is in fact safely ensconced within the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
When I first saw Site 1 at the Plain of Jars, I was struck by how nonchalantly the 250 huge stone jars there were scattered across the landscape. All of them seemed to be planted about one-third below ground level and tossed at an angle, but not always the same angle nor in the same direction. The mystery is that no one knows what the purpose of the jars was.
Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world and has lost little of its grandeur since the time it was built at the beginning of the 12th century. It is also the most recent of some 70 temples the Khmers built over hundreds of years dating back to the 800s. The complex is stunning due to its pure magnitude, its architecture and its carved relief murals. They operate in harmony to create a presence that lends reality to the direct connection between the mortal and divine worlds.
