Mark sounds the caracol


Hi! Thanks for stopping by.

I often describe life’s journey as rather like making soup. You go through life collecting tasty ingredients for your world view, your creation, and what I aim to do here is to give you a taste of my soup and maybe introduce you to a few ingredients for your own.

My name is Mark. I am currently living by the magical Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, in the town of San Marcos La Laguna.

I am an explorer. I like to explore all sorts of things; Mayan calendars, nutrition, cooking, health, spirituality, off grid living,  lunar effects, gardening, nature, chemistry and energy to name a few. I like to share what I have discovered with my friends and I have often been asked the question “so when are you going to write a book?” Well, I have yet to get around to that, but in the mean time, I would like to share some of the things that interest me with you. You might be interested in one of those subjects, you might find several of them interesting. I am not an authority, but I have some ideas. Most of what I have to say is rather far from academia, but I hope that it might prove useful to you.

My goal is to  inspire you; to guide you if that’s what you seek; to give you ideas about things that you might not have realised even existed. I feel I can say this because I have been discovering these things for myself. These are not the things we are taught at school, more’s the pity.  We are not born with an instruction manual. I have been fortunate enough to have had the time to explore. Sometimes, due to the area in which I live, necessity has been the mother of invention – or I suppose I should say “the mother of looking it up on the internet”, as I can hardly claim that I invented most of what I am going to write about. What I do hope is that by putting things in one place I can make them more accessible to you.
