This site was created in 2012. The title dates further back to 1984 when my sister-in-law, Bronwen, commented that the photograph of Alexis and me looked like the cover image for a magazine called Bizarre Horizons. The magazine became a mental reality immediately, though never a published reality. In 2012 my brother and I decided to publish Bizarre Horizons as an online magazine and began this blog as a testing site. It never moved past the first post. In 2015, while searching for a good wordpress theme for a student of mine, I discovered the Bindery theme and decided to breathe new life into Bizarre Horizons. My intention had changed. Bizarre Horizons was to act as my think pad to help organize the diverse ways I express my experience of living through photography, paintings, sketchbooks and written journals. I find the world, and the universe, in which I live to be a challenging, beautiful, dreadful and bizarre place. As I move forward and backward along my path, the horizon always changes.
It’s now 2020. I’ve discovered a new purpose for Bizarre Horizons. It hosts my Morning Scribbler blog where I share my daily habit of sketching before my logical brain clicks in, and sometimes before I’ve even had my first cup of coffee.
I invite you to join me as I open my eyes each day with pen and brush in hand.
Welcome to Bizarre Horizons.
