Welcome To Vilcabamba
"The Sacred Valley of Longevity"

This Is A Privately Circulated Blog, scribbled exclusively for Friends & Familiars, that peers into and pontificates about Expat life in the hinterlands of South America. If your eyesight is less than optimal (like mine), then just click the type size up a notch on your browser..

Here you will find a series of curmudgeonly commentaries that I've posted from atop my rickety old soapbox for the past few years. And yes, there are indeed political rantings, so place your seats in the upright position and fasten your seat belts .... it may be a bumpy ride.


Where The Writing Gets Done

Thought that you dear readers might like to see a photo of my little casita's study, where all the blog scribbling takes place. The books you see in the background have been lugged around with me for the past forty years, some of which are far older than that. Being a semi-retired gentleman of leisure, I now have the time and inclination to re-read a good number of these books ... some of which are finally beginning to make some sense to me. Everyone should have a personal library of "real" books, along with the new digital e-books stuffed into our Kindles, iPads and other assorted electronic readers.

Every book has within its pages the combined life-energy of the person who wrote it and of those who have read it and thought of its contents. And whenever a book changes hands, that energy grows and strengthens. Find within the pages of your books the ideas and concepts that awaken the chord of recognition in your mind and in your heart. Let the words become those thoughts that enable you to manifest a greater clarity of who you are and what you are to do with your life.
