On the path, where am I, what next?

My Bio found at

Questions on my creative work

1. What do I want to make
2. What do I want to experience?
3. Where do these two come together?
4. What do I want others to want from me?
5. What others do I want to be involved with, and how?
6. What do I think I know?
7. What evidence do I have that others want to experience my knowledge or creative output?

My web site is obsolete. I've been trying to use it to publicize my stuff, possibly sell some poetry, or photographs, or CD.s, but got no interest. Now, I'm planning to give away most of that stuff, offer it free or for the cost of mailing copies. Here's a link to it. I'd welcome comments on how to present this stuff more usefully, so that anyone likely to be interested in owning or using any of it themselves can discover it.

More thoughts, the conditions on Web communications:

1. Free stuff
with the Net, eyeballs and ears travel and pick up free information and head trip experiences, why pay when you can get quick hits of unlimited entertainment, information, excitement, free?

2. Co-operation in creativity:
I'll read and use yours if you'll read and use mine. People everywhere share their pics words music, use each other's stuff for their raw material.
People not passive voyeurs but active participants, they put out their stuff saying "see me see me hear me", they comment on each other's stuff, they offer suggestions.

3. Return to tribal life ways:

The learning mode is by experience and sharing, not by listening to a guru, or memorizing and regurgitating. The building mode is by collaboration and equal sharing, How were the TIPI and the IGLOO first made? Not by some architect, selling his skill for money, but by hundreds of people over time working together to create the prettiest most efficient and effective dwelling for their purpose and habitat.

And that's my goal too...

To create the prettiest, most efficient, and effective dwelling for my life purpose and habitat.
