The bones of our world are old - we stopped listening to them ages ago


I am Peter: I am a wanderer, lawyer, author and photographer. 

The stories of the world surrounds us and we are blind to them  We have forgotten simple things: why we have seven days, what the names mean, how patterns intersect.

A lifetime ago, I started writing about this in Syntaxis - a book about game theory. Later, I used that work in social and legal theory: building a constitution of a newly formed state and rewriting its civil law. I joined a small group of people who, across the ages, have studied our most ancient laws, customs and beliefs. 

For the last couple of decades, I have been running at 100 miles a second, working deep in the interspaces between the bones of our world, working with the old patterns.   

This place is my way of slowing down a little, starting to give the bones voice, and having some fun. In the past couple of years, i have written 9 novels (and, with CR Bravo, 3 graphic novels), explored countless wild places, photographed waterfalls and enjoyed my life.

Hi Peter,
I stumbled over your exquisite writing at 3am this morning trying to find out more about Tahmoor Gorge and surrounding landscape. Your nature writing voices everything I see and feel in place, and therefore summarised exactly what I was searching for last night. Thank you - Erin

Tahmoor is a place of great beauty and sadness. This is a place that can become very crowded - and part of me likes that people come and enjoy the water and paths.
It is a different place when the place is empty, and the voices of the young fade into the rocks. Kant said that an essential ingredient in the perception of the sublime is the apprehension of fear. I do not think that we should therefore avoid these places - i find it a part of accepting the environment as it is, without the comfort of railings and steps or ladders.
Thank you for your comments
