Welcome! In 2016 I left the work world to pursue my longstanding dream of living a creative life.  Part of that dream was to create a web site where I could share my piano compositions, art work, poems and short stories.

The Philosopher’s Stone

This symbol is a simple yet profound image used by alchemists to represent the culmination of their “Great Work:” spiritual perfection.  To the uninitiated, alchemy was a painstaking, improbable scientific method for transmuting a base metal, lead, into a precious metal, gold. But true alchemists understood the cryptic method was really a metaphorical road map for expanding spiritual wisdom and understanding, and  actualizing our full potential as a spiritual being living a human life.

Wow, I am overcome – illuminating artistically and intellectually.  I love the intertwining of visual art, music, and – wow – mathematics!  I was not aware of the origins of The Philosopher’s Stone, and love that you’ve created such a beautiful representation of such a powerful symbol. (Anne)
