Founder of Briarpatch. The gratification comes in the doing, not in the results. Like Steve McQueen, I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than any city on earth; but I need to have a reason why I’m doing something, otherwise I’m lost. We are all impaled by man’s conditioning; I cannot work in an environment where there is a stiff hierarchy. I am close to Mother Nature, now beginning to be able to appreciate the beauty with which she is endowed.
