The Porch Of Temple Tantra Gives Me Views I Never Had.  It Is My Simple Home I Love, And What I Hoped To Share.  From Here I've Seen So Many Things That Once Were Out Of View, From Here I Share My Love And Hope, And Pass It On To You.

Pulling the plug with a Goodbye Kiss to Kickstarter and friends

Well the consensus seemed to be that I was asking for way too much money to do what I hoped to do, and some seem to have thought I was doing it for my personal benefit, which admittedly hurts my feelings as it is the furthest from the truth of any stories told about my intention or my goals. So I am posting this collection of past houses, of what can be done so some may see and light their imaginations for the future when this concept may be ready to emerge in the public mind. For now, 400,000 toxic RV’s will be built, 450,000 toxic houses with sheetrock that even the dumps will not take as trash, and the beat goes on. While I have used the tiny house format to plant my seedlings, my concepts of building with 95% Pure Salvage, of not using toxic materials if we do not have to, of not wasting living space to heat and cool, pay taxes on, and eventually abandon due to the cost of it all and the diminishing savings that the baby boomers are now learning will not last their lives out.

But it seems that most view my stance through this sort of glassy barrier that keeps them from taking in the sights, the information, and being able to get the will to open the door to what could be for the future generations that will suffer their entire lives from the houses we grow them in.

Here are a few collections of images of houses I have created that I had hoped to create the plans for and pass along to others:

From this pulpit and the cyberspace one I have written from known as a photo blog, I have spoken with a true heart about what is happening, the effects on people, children, and our society, and many appear to have listened.  For this I am ever thankful, for that is my mission.

When I started the Kickstarter campaign it was hard for me to ask for help, having eaten out of dumpsters in my youth rather than ask anyone, family, friends, or strangers for a handout. I thought I would be able to give ample in return to the many in need, not to take any of it for myself as I have no need, living simply in a tiny house without electricity running to it, and only walking water (I walk what I need there in bottles). It appears that has been mis interpreted by most, thousands upon thousands, who think I am trying to scam the world for a measly amount of money compared to the value of my truth and honor.

Don Quixote traveled the land chasing the invisible dragons, battling for the good, yet bringing home no gold to the village from his escapades.  Gy that he was judged, not for his kind heart and courage, his willingness to charge what seemed to him like the evil that needed to be taken out.  The measure of my success was never intended to be the gold it would reap, but the good it would do.

I will not continue with that perception any longer and will thus return all of the funds donated, and give some pictures of the houses I have created, the photoblogs of the most beautiful houses made from trash in the world as a parting gift. None of the many videos, blogs, or information I have offered has been monetized to make me wealthy, in fact even to pay for them to be created. They were my gifts to the world to inspire them to copy this concept, to move forward down a new path, and to help fix the problems of the homeless, the handicapped, the elderly, and the underprivileged. Clearly that history has not kept me from being accused of trying to take advantage at this late date in my life. No need for that. I would rather keep my truth, my honor, and my reputation for not taking anything from anyone in return for what I give freely. This the book for now will go back into the realm of seeing what I can do with the help of a few who are willing to also give their time to make it happen.

One of my favorite pictures I bought while in Mexico visiting my son when he studied Spanish there years ago.  It is that shattering of the mask, the awakening that he later brought me through that led me back, awakened me to the important things in life.  Having more money to spend on trinkets, cars, and a lavish lifestyle is not  what is important to me, and the beard grown and later shaved off so people would not think me more crazy than I seem clean shaven was much like the picture in the background of Don Quixote.  Once more the mask shatters as I see through different eyes how the world sees me.

Here are some blogs with great things to see, and the hope that the kids, elders, and others will use them for inspiration to venture down this road one day soon. I am deeply sorry for letting so many down and not being able to fulfill my goal, but it is clear at this point that the target will not be reached and only my reputation will suffer for the words and accusations so many have to say about it rather than contribute a small amount to make a positive difference in the world. Kickstarter has likewise ignored this campaign for the most part as the dashboard shows less than 4% of the contributions came through them giving it any attention. Thus said, I will move on with this kiss of photos, my passion, and my regrets for having set out to ask for help in this fashion for it has certainly hurt my image having so many think I would try to run this as a scam through which to better my personal life. My reputation is worth far more than $300,000 to me, thusly proven with this retraction, which will refund all the pledges and we will be even once more.

While some of the videos are old, and some of the entrance music annoying on the early videos, they tell the tale I hoped to share. Please visit a few if you can and see what I have been working on for the last decade that has consumed a million dollars and 100 hours a week. I did take off one week to go pick up my son in Paris and have him cremated before carrying him home. Otherwise, this is my life and I shall go on with it, but not with my hand out anymore. If I can not do it alone, then it will not get done. Thank you to all those whose words of positive support keep me going, and to those who did contribute with their pledge, though only 48 in number in 19 of the 30 days I had set to reach this lofty goal. Much gratitude and many blessings to all who have followed what I am attempting to accomplish. May others do better than I have in the future.

I hope you benefit and share with those who do not yet understand what we are losing with the trashing of the past, and what we could gain with nothing more than human energy if we wanted to try. Thank you, Thank you, thank you.

I will pull the plug tomorrow so that the people who contributed so far can get their money back and let this campaign die quietly and limit the damage to my reputation to what it has been thus far. No more pledges are needed as this is no longer reachable without Kickstarter support or the public kicking in. Much gratitude for your time and attention, and for the blogs that gave us their support.
