Luminous Places Website and Book

I have re-designed and updated my website: take a tour and see the improvements. Home page now has a background picture of an Eastern California desert, the same one as seen on the cover of my book, and header for the blog. The small picture, lower left, is a waterfall in the high Sierra Nevada of California; the small picture, lower right is  a snow capped mountain in Northern California.

This is a quote about my book, from the hard copy cover:

A Guide to Luminous Places is a book that can help you find locations, in the city and the wilderness, of high vitality and serenity: places to live and prosper, for vacation and regeneration. In addition, you will find that the insights and extraordinary sensitivity learned from this book will be of benefit to your relationships with people, and improve perceptions of many subtle qualities of any environment.

In this book, Paul shares with you personal autobiographical narratives exploring amazing inner worlds of luminosity, and external locations of beauty and high vitality. A Guide to Luminous Places is a brilliant path leading to renewable inspiration and fountains of well being.

These Blessed Mountains

“These blessed mountains are so compactly filled with God’s beauty, no petty personal hope or experience has room to be. Drinking this champagne water is pure pleasure, so is breathing the living air, and every movement of limbs is pleasure, while the whole body seems to feel beauty when exposed to it as it feels the camp-fire or sunshine, entering not by the eyes alone, but equally through all one’s flesh like radiant heat, making a passionate ecstatic pleasure-glow not explainable.”

” It is easier to feel than to realize, or in anyway explain, Yosemite grandeur”.

John Muir,  “My First Summer In The Sierra“, chapter 5 “The Yosemite“.
