I will record my experiments (successful or not) with using crystals and minerals to effect energy and to enhance my craft. I have been fascinated by these gorgeous products of the earth since I was very young. I credit my father for introducing a respect and wonder for their beauty and power through his lifelong search to understand the divine and unknown. By changing my major in college halfway through my sophomore year to two unrelated majors I made an unexpected decision to study geology. I have never regretted that choice since it has helped me to reconcile science and metaphysics in my own mind with a greater appreciation of both.
