I’ve been spending the last few days putting together a project site for The Turning, which is now open and ready for use… you can visit it here:
http://theturning.onehumanbeing.com/ (site no longer available)
On the new site you’ll find the story has been organized to make it easier to follow.
I’ve added extra material to help you understand the various ideas from the story – Monthly Mayan calenders with downloadable PDF ‘s of the different periods of The Tzolkin, a playlist of songs that the story is partly based on, and even a scrollable timeline of postings… and I have many other things planned for the future.
I have also moved STEW, an allegorical story about the 2008 election, over to The Turning site, where these two story will soon be merged into one…
What Is The Turning?
This is serial – a story that will unfold over a seven year period of time – which tells the story of a mythical and imaginative journey taken by Jon, onehumanbeing that blends fiction and non-fiction as it explores ideas about time, being human, bipolar disorder, god(s), creation, history, Mayan calenders, astrology, space, the sub-conscious mind, quantum physics, American Christianity and the coming Long Cycle – among other things.
But most of the time this story is more about the questions it stirs up in you than anything else…

What Is A Project Site?
As an artist I’m always at work on more than one thing at a time. For example, when I’m painting I usually have about 5 paintings going at once – all in various stages of completion.
Currently, much of my work is done on very large scales. As an example – The MMJ Project, which uses my local city and community as the studio and working space for my various activities involving Medical Marijuana and the long struggle to get it established and normalized.
To keep my various projects, and the different materials, concepts, and campaigns from getting lost in a confusing mass of stuff, I started to start creating “project sites” for each project idea – sort of like spin-offs from TV shows – and this gives each project it’s own home.
By using this “multiple project sites” approach, I find as my focus shifts over time I can move from one project site to the next, adding new material, making changes, adjusting the project to keep it on track, and whatever else needs to be done at that time.
Then, after a while, a shift or a change comes over me and I’m onto the next project – and around and around it goes…
I hope that helps you understand the process going on here at onehumanbeing.com
Until later, best of health…
