What must we overcome to achieve peace?
insatiable appitite always wanting more even if it means others suffer an inablility to count your blessings and care for others . . .this has largely been due to the tradition of scarcity the one upmanship of the haves over the have nots. This needs to be abandoned for a sustainable abundancy approach. It seems pie in the sky . . . so keep your i on the pie. iPeace a pie Tell all your peaceful friends about iPeace.me the social network with a cause . . . please scroll down and read RanchoBozo Philosophy

More about me
I'm an aging hippy, a retired elementary teacher for San Francisco public schools . . . I always treated my students as though they were extreemly important people because they were (are), I've been married for thirty years to a beautiful retired special ed teacher . . . we have two world class daughters who are great contributers to the net goodness of mankind. I have an ausome website RanchoBozo.com and work part time as a substitute teacher at Bayside and Martin Luther King middle school in Marin City.

A typical average Music store in San Francisco, California, Planet Earth RanchoBozo Philosophy he put his fingers to the side of his head and pontificatedCaptain Wayne-O sez: You wake up one morning with a vauge notion that you had a dream and maybe everybody else had the same dream . . . or perhaps an awakening . . . Now would be a good time for everyone to accept that we are all related, interconnected and interdependent upon eachother across all species through out our home planet. Now would be a good time for more and more of us to act accordingly. Now is a good time for our actions to be lead by what is good for others, the earth as well as ourself. Now is a good time to give love freely. It's a great time to open our hearts and receive love. It's everywhere let yourself feel it.

We believe it's possible for the powerful policy makers in government and industry through out the world to work together with a vision of sustainablity and social justice. We are capable of technological solutions to help all humanity and all the other life forms on our planet. Imagine an evergrowing solar electric energy station orbiting in L5 between the earth and moon. An amazing station that can deliver many times over peak global load so everyone on planet earth can plug in their favorite whatevers for free. Free the same way the internet is free like water. Fresh drinking water,and clean air is the birth right of every citzen of planet earth. These things must be addressed swiftly. We don't have clean air for far too many, We don't have fresh drinking water for far too many.

The governments of the world will also be free to concentrate their efforts on solving real world problems instead of creating them.

You who have the wealth, power, resources and ingenuity don't you think it's shameful how much mass suffering in our world is tolerated. We think enough's enough and if enough of us share plans, prayers and visions they will be implemented. We will naturally move toward an economy of abundancy and sustainablity as the monetary system is abanoned and considered useless. The world will be a better place to explore what it is to be a human.

The original RanchoBozo Philosopy

that's you the big you that does the youing . . . that you that involves the evolution of you through all of your stages from nothingness to the mighty universe as it expesses it's self as you at this moment. Just RELAX it is with a sad heart we say good by to one of the world's last theocracy. The proud tradition that kept Napali identity for more than two hundred years has been supplanted by Maoists. Please read up on this quiet little war. This is what happens when our eye is off the ball for ten years.
Kathmandu summer of '73

Kali as a totally modern woman In the vedas long long ago it was written in prophecy the signs of the initiation of the rule of Kali - She dances fiercely with sword in hand and the heads of many around her neck, nothing can hide from her firey eyes, the cycle of chaos and spiritual awakening is upon us . . . . from the west will return the Aryans - not as conquerors not as the holy Brahmins but clothed in the rags and versed in the ways of the untouchables . . . justice will be served. It seems like a dream to me now . . . . a foggy yet at times such a vivid dream. The days of tales from the infamous pudding shop in Istanbul about the high adventures on the road to Kathmandu. I welcome fellow TIME TRAVELERS to share a story and scan what you can. I believe we can collectively weave a piece of living history at RanchoBozo.com, alive within virtual space. The cyber back pack will be opened. We're waiting to hear from those who lived to tell about it. Peer through the doors of perception . . . . . words and photography by wayne elkin . . . .

KATHMANDU in 73 walking in Kathmandu

NAMNASTE' The Who abandoned their PA system and generator to sustain the full moon fire dancing madness of Anjuna Beach, Goa, India. Was there truth to this or any of the other legends and rumors? All tropical possibilities ride on only a two week trek with a second class ticket on the Tehran Express (the Istanbul Express heading East belching smoke on frozen tracks) assorted ox carts, camels, jam packed buses, and taxis on treacherous mountain roads in the dead of winter. Sleeping vertical and eating solid hard eggs fried in motor oil never felt or tasted so good. Who could you trust? Anyone? Everyone? the sounds-the smells Anyone? Everyone? Look deep into those hollow heptic eyes next to you. Yet we came to Kathmandu like moths to an unfrosted light bulb in the darkness of night.


Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal; the most sophisticated populated modern cosmopolitan city in the entire theocracy. The Kathmadu Lodge was in the heart of the city. The hotel opened up into a beautiful courtyard. Buildings were often hundreds of years old. The Kathmandu Lodge was excellent (always serving boiled water). Rufus the rooster provided daily wake up service. The lodge had two real working showers with hot water and served perfect soft boiled eggs for breakfast (see [ELKIN's DIET]). When I think about it now the Kathmandu Lodge was like a Rancho Bozo for three life altering months.


Lord Shiva the greatest of all Sadus meditates at a temple built in his honor. There are more temples in Kathmandu than there are any other type of public structure. Which is what one might expect in a theocracy. Kathmandu is ruled by her king an incarnate of Vishnu the Sustainer. Vishnu? nothing, Vishnu with you?* With appologies to Vishnu the originator of that line. Nepal is a very Holy place embracing Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism and Christianity for centuries. The theocracy of Nepal has protected and supported Tibetan Buddhist refuges for a half of a century (commendable for a country as poor as Nepal). Please pray daily for the people of Nepal. They pray daily for all of us. Don't you rebels listen to John? "if you carry pictures of Chairman Mao you're not going to make it with anyone anyhow" * actually from the National Lampoon Radio Dinner LP

The TEMPLE is a part of nature

There is an organic quality in the temples of Kathmandu. The weathered earth tones of the temples and rich patenas on the bells and gongs look as though they grew slowly from the ancient earth itself. The people use the natural shelters in every way imaginable. Giant stalagmites of colored wax grow from the thousands of devotional candels lit year after year. Every moment day or night a distant temple bell chimes somewhere in the great city of Kathmandu. After all Vishnu is their King.


All living things are respected as a physical manifestation of God. Cows are living things more over cows provide the milk for Krishna's milk maids. Is more needed to be said?


There is a sacred quality of the mother child relationship be it gods, bovine, or human. Cows still and always will wander the city streets in the hard pack pastures of Nepal and India. If cows run free then why can't we? How does it veal?

The story of Ganesh was revealed after having lunch with Vikash my supervisor at Goodman Building Supply. According to Vikash, Shiva who perfered solitude and meditation did not want to give his wife Parvati a child. Parvati rubbed herself with an ointment of the gods and created Ganesh . . . Shiva was upset when he found a strange young man was guarding his bedroom door . . . a fight ensued and Ganesh lost his head his replacement head was from an innocent elephant bystander . . . Shiva soon adopted Ganesh. Genesha became the god of overcoming obstacles, new beginings and the god of wealth. Ganesha is a very popular god of modern Hinduism.

There was a little web exploration and it is clear that the once infamous book The Road to Katmandu is now religated to the silicon dusty confines of back water regions of cyber space and yet. . . . . still writing like a rebel without a clause . . . . was it a hippy trail to paradise?

This photo is unsetteling (yeah, the poor guy looks like he's lost his head when you tilt your's while watching an LCD screen) . . . I shot before asking questions . . . this is the outskirts of Kathmandu . . . just past the Bagmati River . . . .

The road to Kathmandu is dotted with roadside buisnesses TATA truck repair, chia and snack shops, and plenty of trinketts and bobles that rarely go bling bling?

On the road again . . . satchel in hand departing from the metropolis near the top of planet earth . . . Will he ever return to Kathmandu? I never have . . .

Thinking of Caroline

At 9:31pm on January 24, 2009, Wayne Elkin said…Where I live every one hates the idea of killing beautiful deer. There are deer every where. On the surface this is great and while we do have a few natural preditors around like mountain lions and coyotes they can't control the deer population. Thousands die of starvation in our area. I believe hunting by bow might be a more human approach. What do you think Erika? At age fifty seven I'm about as young… Continue

Hey Friends of RanchoBozo.com and ipeace.me

Carol baked some delectable cake that tasted like the best cookie ever The hippy feel of Bolinas is inspiring and radiates an influence towards… Continue
