In a Butterfly’s Dream
A tale of passion, possession and transcendence
on the island of Bali

In this psychological drama, Roy and Sevin, two recent arrivals to Bali, find themselves in a struggle with malevolent spirits, demons and goddesses of the Bali Hindu cosmology.

Roy, an artist, after meeting Dayu, a young Balinese girl, has visions of the mother he lost as a boy, prompting suppressed feelings of guilt and longing to surface eventually culminating in a spiritual release and awakening.

Sevin, a delusional drifter and codeine addict, is rapidly using up his father’s inheritance. He becomes secretly infatuated with Dayu. This makes him vulnerable to the intentions of the parasitic stone monkeys, spirits who feed on the passions of anger, greed and envy, which eventually lead him to make a devastating choice.

Asian Sketches

This collection comes from a sketchbook that I carried throughout Laos, Vietnam and Thailand during the monsoon of  2000, it offers meditative insight into place and moment with watercolors and verse.


Now set free from the confines of my paradise hermitage,
I walk along the shore to find a rock flat enough to sit on
And listen to the sea kiss the sand
and tell the shore of where it has been.

It tells of great creatures,
the great darkness,
The icy suspension and the sublime journeys aloft,
High in brother sky,
cool and shining
Bright as truth.

Throughout this journey, I integrated a question, a point of concentration, a koan, as an element in the creative process.
I kept with me a question about “time”.
