Chronicles & Quests

Enter ye into the world of adventure, mystery, folklore, expeditions, archaeology, science, and fantasy woven into the public journals of the Techno-nomad most know as “Sir Thomas” or “Leaf” within his seemingly 5 lifetimes he’s lived from 1968 until the present day.

His purpose in life is to protect the Ancestors – their history, lore, legend, myth, and ancestral remains. Also a water protector, a water-remember-er. He is a teacher to pass on their knowledge.

Sir Thomas creates his own “Living Myth” by searching through folklore and legends for answers of conundrums presented to him in life. Fascinated by the world of myth, fantasy, faeries, and magic, he seeks elements that most overlook. Every day the Universe presents him with challenges that he must solve, and these are turned into quests, sagas, and adventures presented here. Many of these adventures began as dreams realized by vacations as he delved and explored the mysteries of the unknown.

As he weaves his “Living Myth” the divine has presented upon him various omens, oracles, and prophecies that lead him to some pretty fascinating places in the world, embarking upon travels found in legend, but taking place in the modern era.

In this lifetime alone, he has lived many “lives”. He has found secrets of true love, experienced divorce, heartache, bliss, unraveled lore, unlocked secrets of the unknown, and has begun to walk the thresholds between the world of mortals and that of the lands of legends. Below, we invite you to take the journey from whence it began and follow it as the Living Myth unwinds opening doorways to a future of high sea adventure, mystical lands, and proof that what was once thought to be a mere ‘fairy tale’ is very much alive in the concrete jungles of technological societies. Delve through the lore with this Technomad as he explores the ancient, mundane, magical, in the here and now ….
