I was born into this world on June 24th, 1952 and given the name David Wendel Robinson.
I find it interesting that we go through life with so many changes and experiences. I have experimented with various blogs using various pseudonyms but here now in a moment of revelation, I finally realized the importance of keeping it simple.
From this day forward I write simply as Brother David, for I see myself as a spiritual brother to all life, everywhere. So simple.
I live now in the Philippines, retired they say, but not sure what that means. I guess I go to sleep when I feel like it, get up when I feel like it. Eat when I feel like it. Write and take photographs when I feel like it or am so inspired. So I stay busy, when I feel like it and rest when I feel like it. My work now is my blog. I may later add a YouTube channel where I will provide inspirational slide shows or short movie clips.
I chose the Philippines to live in solely on a deep feelings. Having been here twice before for work, (fraud investigator in business outsourcing) I had always longed to come back and felt I needed too. Did so quite impulsively and without much planning or resources. Usual pattern, beautiful, caring woman but since many problems. We still work together to manage life’s daily needs but no idea where that will lead. I can see possibilities and in my way, always pray for the greatest good of both of us, no matter if it is together or apart.
For the purpose of this blog I write under the pseudonym of “Brother David”. And yes it was different before. Just had an awakening of sorts blending the past, present and possible future.
I guess you could say that in some ways, David Wendel Robinson is the energy I was born into and Brother David is the spiritual energy I now choose to explore and express. Not different from my birth energy so much, as that is always part of me, but rather an evolution.
Anyway, this is my blog where I will write what comes to mind on a great many things. Contemplations of a Modern Mystic. An old soul moving through this experience called material life, with a smile on my face and a song in my heart.
Life for me is a mystery, meant to be lived and enjoyed.

A couple of poems relevant to me and my work.
CHANT OF THE EAGLECHILD
I sing my soul to God
A silent song of praise
A stillness of my being
A growing of my spirit
My wings are spread to catch the Joy
To soar on high within
and speak in Silent Whispers.
My song is a wall, against the desert of despair.
I am the song, and my wing’s are God.
Sleeping Eagle now awakens
Darkness reigns no more supreme
Voice of spirit now is sounding
Rising to heaven’s glorious realm
Divine love erupting forth
Cleanses flesh and mind of limitation
Awaken child of Eagle’s Dream
Awaken to the life that is yours
Love, Joy and Peace
And a few more photos of me during my life. Many looks but one soul.
