Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written over the past 25+ years, as well as my travel journals and announcements.  Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

Thank You All

I owe my success in 2017 to each of you who visited my page, purchased a hat, or recommended me to a friend.  You not only supported a local artisan, but several charities as well, including World Central Kitchen, One Nation Appeal and Planned Parenthood.  Thank you from every part of my heart.
