to the chaotic and often strange life of a Quasi, Clumsy Spiritual Warrior, Dan Abernathy. This is the weekly Newsletter where I share with you my voice, be it in words, art, or my collections of oddities, fascinations, desires and obsessions. Here I will make available 98% of all my perspectives, be they fluid and random, meandering and incomplete, or things I have completed and offering. They other 2% I keep to himself, archived and a gift for the scholars and naysayers to decipher later on. This will all be delivered to you via the web, whether I am roaming the road in his converted 1991 International school bus, The Chool Bus, home in Pinedale, Wyoming or briefly hanging my hat in another dusty corner of the world.

Some Notable Images
I always thought a bumblebee, was a bumblebee, but that is not the case. There are many different types of these cool little critters. What is happening for some odd and seemingly unknown reasons is four of the species are taking a nosedive in North America. 96% of these four are gone. With this small fact buzzing in your head it makes seeing one of these mega pollinators enjoying new spring dandelions even better.
Making a Notable Image
Sometimes you have to turn around and look behind you to find the image you are looking to make.

As poetry is a passion, one new bit of fun I have been having is submitting my poetry to different literary journals, both online and printed collections. I have been doing this about a month now and have had six accepted with Outlaw Poetry, Pockmarks in Life, Unaccepted, B-Side of Reality, The Toilet, The Parade and Potatoes. I also had three accepted by In Between Hangovers, To Fool the Fools, The Taste and No Surprise.

New Pieces from Chaos Creations
I have started a Rune series. These are made from pounded copper ground wire with the runic inscription placed on the copper with small chisels. Each one has a large ring for the 32 inch treated chain and are approximately 2 inches long. $38.00
Runes are the ancient alphabet of the Norse. They are one of the ways to practice the art of divination. Runes are most often carved into stones, but other materials such as bones, wood or shells have also been used. There are 24 runes, but some include a blank rune, the Rune of Odin. There is an apparent link between the power of the mind, as well as other magical properties, which are represented by the symbology contained within each symbolic letter.
Free Shipping is now available on my books,
