Life is a journey and I'd like to share mine with you. We'll travel back in time and round the world to the Great Wall of China. Then we'll come forward again to the present moment — the only place where real life exists. Everything that's happened our lives has taken place in a particular moment, at that specific time. We'll explore this more.

We'll also check out Florida and my family roots there. We'll look at life, politics, spirituality.  We'll look at things good, bad, funny and serious. Nothing is more important than family and friends, both new and old. This website will celebrate this and our collective journey together.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll find this website interesting, informative, entertaining — and even inspiring.

Welcome to my corner of the Internet.

Life 2.0

My grandfather, Dr. William Edgar Geil, is the first person of any race or nationality documented to have walked the entire length of the Great Wall of China. He did this in the summer of 1908. Most likely you've never heard of him, but if my family and friends in the United States and China have our way, everyone soon will. The whole thing is an amazing story, and it's all here.

Most people die without ever having lived. As life unfolds before us, we're distracted rehashing the past or anticipating the future. And once that future arrives, we're looking ahead to the next.

Life 2.0 looks at Meditation and Mindfulness as explained by distinguished teachers and practitioners.
