Out of the Minds of Babes
by Anthony G. Payne, Ph.D.

To be human is to seek. We are at heart explorers, whether in a global or very circumspect sense. And for most of us, finding our place in the scheme of things is vitally important. Some find the answer to their quest solely in the realm of faith; others solely in the world of ideas; others, in the realm of sensations, pleasures, and such. Many of us touch on many of these along the way and, like patrons in a cafeteria, sometimes pick and choose the things that give or impute purpose and/or meaning.

Solitude is often the soil they need to emerge into the light of consciousness.

The Journey of Don Antonio Arguello, Urban Shaman and Artist
Claudine Jeanrenaud, Ph. D.

Not a gallery but a cave. Not a picture of light and bravery, but the pulse of expectant life under the frozen veil that separates the worlds. Not a threat either but a certainty. The spirits are real, be they the Eternal Feminine, its perpetual companion Death, Brother Compassion, Grand ’Father Eagle, the gigantic princely Wild Mountain Man or last, but not least, the god of uncertainty and change, a dubiously smiling Mercurius.
