Welcome to the chaotic and often strange life of Dan Abernathy a Quasi Spiritual Warrior. Because I can formulate my thoughts better with my fingers, which can lead to a whole other direction that we won’t be touching yet, I’ll be reading some of what you are hearing.

     I am an outlaw poet, artist, and purveyor of words, Reiki Master, a minister, junk yard philosopher, and a vagabond searching for pure hedonistic meaning in his way of life. My voice, be it in words or in art, is a collection of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions – a road map of sorts, tracking the life of a man that can’t and won’t fit in. While making this visible to all, I practice the therapeutic healing of living in the now, among the mountains, deserts, oceans, and the bus. I do so without any recognized seal of social approval. I walk my path softly in search of a higher consciousness with the hope of leaving peace and compassion as his only footprints.

      I make available 98% of all my freedom and perspectives, be they fluid and random thought, words of meaning, and words of too much meaning, or perhaps at times, meandering words and incomplete rants unleashed to the masses. They other 2% I keep to himself, archived and a waiting gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher after I walk on.
