Most of us know him as Fox Mulder, the highly intelligent ”¬†an Oxford educated Psychologist, who wrote a monograph on serial killers and the occult, that helped to catch Monty Props in 1988.

Dare or dare?

What did Mystikos and Observer see? No way to determine that over a century later. I see no mysterious lights in the twilight sky. I have never seen any. The closest I got to it was spotting some meteors during the Orionid meteor shower over Mt. Dandenong in 2019 at about two in the morning. […]

Landscapes and locations – Musings about Twin Peaks and art

I am drawn to landscapes and locations. It is not about the actual visual presentation of an image but the internal responses that almost spontaneously emerge within me – my job is to be sensitive to the thought/emotion ripples and riots and to record them, to give them a voice. Filming locations are unique landscapes. […]

Now, Project Aurora is an unsubstantiated black project funded by the Pentagon. There is no real evidence that such an aircraft was ever built. But then, that’s true […]

Actionable wanderlust

Officially it is summer still. But I noticed this morning that trees had started letting go of leaves. An unmistakable sign of fall. Fall is my favorite time of the year. Perfectly balanced weather. The Goldilocks season. For the next few days I want to contemplate on the season itself and on what I’d like […]

An important conversation with my daughter about time use and two open questions to readers

My daughter started secondary school last week. Right away she noticed that her life was different and was going to be increasing varied and complex henceforth. She is excited about her school supplies and the lockers and how she gets to and back from school. She is excited about new ways of communicating with friends, […]
