Originally I was not a man of the east, nor as a young boy was I seeped in things of the east. Although I was taken to India at an early age I was born in America and, even though I was in India long enough to miss many months of school, I was still otherwise, raised in America as an American boy pure and simple, hence my early childhood is tinged with reminisces and things from that background. From that, throughout my texts and associated footnotes and links I bring up and present constant references to any number of comic books, comic book super heroes, cowboy-western movie stars, Tarzan, ray guns, and other memorabilia and stories from the era such as the deed come ownership of one square inch of land as provided through the Klondike Big Inch Land Company --- and I have done so primarily because of the almost multi-tentacle-like outreach and connections to all those areas associated by me through an almost fanatical childhood fascination with Captain Midnight Code-O-Graphs, especially so the 1942-1945 Photo-Matic version that figured so prominently throughout my life --- that inturn, as an adult, led directly to the ancient hidden hermitage high in the mountains of the Himalayas known as Shambala and sometimes Shangri-la.

As to the subject of donations, for those who may be so interested as it applies to the gratefulness of my works, I invariably suggest any funds be directed toward THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT and/or THE AMERICAN RED CROSS.
