An older piece I wrote for Some Unique Magazine that I think you would find interesting. One of my favorite writers.

“It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one’s life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than try to be a little kinder.”
– Aldous Huxley

He gave way to the essence of one’s self in relationship to society to which society was growing way too fast; devolving into an insensitive authority. He look at the way of how so many things are very antisocial. You are just a number in a machine. The working environment of a collective state called society.

Aldous Huxley, as I can gather, warned against us as a whole, giving up control of our lives to the governing power with no need of an aggression as a mandate. The mandate is what we see in the form…

ON LOCATION #6—-Maryland’s Smallwood State Park

Good evening!

I finally got back to hiking as the weather cleared up, well mostly to trek my way through the woods at Smallwood State Park in Indian Head, Maryland.  The park was named after General William Smallwood, born in St. Charles County Maryland and served during the American Revolution.   The park itself was as big as I would have liked it to be but the water scenery was beautiful nonetheless.  There was not a lot of trails there, in fact, the only one I saw was called “General’s Walk and that was less than a half mile.  I did see the general’s homestead and some, I believe, the tobacco museum.  The reason why I was not certain was due to the lack of park signs indicating what I was looking at.  That was a bit disappointing.

A gem I found was a kids discovery center called the “Sweden Point Discovery Center.”  I spoke with one of the park rangers who tended the place and was told that they do nature talks and exploration with the kids.  They show them the local wildlife and explain the area’s eco-system.  I saw at least 10 interacted exhibits there and they look impressive.  If you are ever in the area and you have kids, a stop there, especially on the weekends is a must.

Well, with that out of the way, I hope you enjoy the videos and pictures and leave a comment or questions if you like.  Oh, and look out for another On Location piece.  This time I will get out of the state of Maryland and see what else is out there :-).

Oh. All of the video clips are below:
