Showing You What I Can See

Showing You What I Can See


I want to show the world what I can see

I want to show you what I can see, what I feel is real

But the ideas I have

The way I see things

Seems so different to what everybody else sees

With the exception of a few friends

Well, that number of friends is growing!


What can I say?

How can I best communicate?

I’m not sure and I don’t know how

I’ve settled on pictures and images

Trying to photograph the things I see so that you can see them also

Trying to draw what I see so that I can show you


What drives my passion, why do I do this?

Well, it is fun, it is fun to interact with what is in the sky and the sun

And it is fun to draw dear sacred geometries

The things that I learn, the information that comes to me

Blows my mind!


I wish to be of service to myself and to human beings

And what I’ve got is, like a universal translator, for certain energies

I can see them, I can feel them, and I’ve got to figure out how to communicate

what I see with you, because you are reading this, and so you care also.


I’ve wished the world was a better place since I was five.

I’ve wished that I could change the world but I learned I couldn’t

I can only change myself, grow myself, look within for guidance and direction

I can feel what makes me joyful, and wish to share this.


Because it might make you joyful also

My images and photographs might bring you hope

I know they fuel my hope

Because it might make you happy

To know we aren’t alone, because we aren’t alone


We are together, in a grand play, and I want to peek behind the curtain,

And give you a back stage pass, in my special viewing section

This website, and others.

All that I wish to create, all that I wish to do

I do it for me.  And I share it with you.


Love, Solaris
