Like Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust phase, or Picasso’s Blue Period, I, too am entering a new personal era. An artist has to evolve towards his personal truth. Even if he doesn't know what that path will bring.
With boundless love,

about my evolution:
My web presence has served as my friend, coach, bully, teacher, confidant, matchmaker, motivator, and so much more.
From 1996 to 2002, the home for my online wanderings has been “cockybastard.com.”
I originally picked the name as a sort of joke.
It wasn’t until I developed a post Burning-Man, in-your-face, pink pants flamboyance that the name “CockyBastard” lost some of its irony.
As I pull up to Yoga class with my “C*CKY” license plate, it doesn’t have the same humor to it as it used to. (Actually, two things have diminished the appeal of my licence plate: 1) Kid Rock released a CD called “Cocky” and 2)I sold my old car and bought a used BMW. “C*CKY” on a sky blue dented-up 86 Acura is much more fun than on a forest green Beemer.)
I am still on the path towards self love.
I still like to share my perspective. I still like to tell stories and
post pictures. But as much as I love the stage, I want to make sure I
have something to say. I want to come from a place of love, not a desire
So now is the time to study and listen and learn and practice.
Time to let go of ego and dedicate myself to be a student of life.
So, I sincerely thank you for being a travel companion during the CockyBastard part of my adventure, and I hope you’ll join me as I embark on “LifeStudent.com” – The next chapter in my digital journey.
