The Human Equine















"I am in my 40s, 5'11" 225ish and have had riders near the 300 pound mark on my shoulders. Although I don't strive to break records, I feel AS a horse I should not have an option to deny a rider due to her size. Just as with a real horse, if she desires to ride and is game to climb on, so be it - the horse has no option here!
I always welcome email, comments, suggestions, NEW FEMALE RIDERS!!
Pony Power!

An Island to Oneself

"This is the story of the years which I spent alone, in two spells on an uninhabited coral atoll half a mile long and three hundred yards wide in the South Pacific. It was two hundred miles from the nearest inhabited island, and I first arrived there on October 7, 1952 and remained alone (with only two yachts calling) until June 24, 1954, when I was taken off ill after a dramatic rescue.
I was unable to return to the atoll until April 23, 1960 and this time I remained alone until December 27, 1963."


A good read.

UFO Phil

"My first series of alien abductions began in 1972. They implanted me with a small chip which gave me a heightened musical ability. I didn't notice the talent at first. But, after years of strenuous study and practice on several musical instruments, it became clear to me. I now know that my abductors wanted me to spread their message through music. I hope the chip keeps working."

"Garden (2000) by Marc Quinn is a real botanical garden, full of plants and flowers from all over the world. They are displayed in full bloom, and are potentially eternal: the nearly 1000 specimens are immersed in twenty-five tons of liquid silicon kept at a constant temperature of -80˚ Celsius. They can neither grow or perish, an unreal dimension that cannot exist unless produced artificially. And though frozen, they produce an enchantment of continuous spring."
