Secrets of Eternal Youth is a Kerouacian road trip through the mental universe with a merry prankster at the wheel. Lloyd is Coyote, the Trickster, who brings us the fire of imagination that is able to see the quantum foam of the universe in the dancing of Jackson Pollack—that allows us to feel the wild excitement of being alive. Secrets is an explosion of metaphor that reprograms our synapses, stretches our minds, and reminds us that we are all youthful poets.

“Make it distant, difficult and dangerous, was the motto of Cooper Schoedsack Productions producers of the original King Kong movie. It is my motto as well during over a million and a hald miles of worldwide travel and adventures. I am a gonzo journalist like the mad genius writer Hunter Thompson, a lover of Kerouac, H. L. Mencken and Tennyson’s Ulysses.
Secrets of Eternal Youth is a shout that shakes the world, a wicked treasure house, a virtual cosmic library, and a colorful madcap tirade about almost everything in this life. It is an “out of the box” wild anarchistic freedom manifesto, filled with myriad adventures and cbaracters I encountered doing assignments with my cameras around our beautiful spinning earth.
The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved…the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars
My friends and mad eternal youths, SECRETS bursts out with friendly, heartwarming encounters with colorful indigenous peoples around the world . It explodes with wise works and words of creative and original writers, artists and poets. It rambles from continent to continent, from shamans and magicians to artists, poets, physicists, alchemists and metaphysics. This is defiantly not a “how to book.” I shout that loudlyand joyfully, eternal youths, gals and guys, because the best and only way to stay young and keep your brain young is to just do it!

Go for it anywhere! That’s how we live the hero’s life! All the myriad arts and sciences, sports, industry and politics are grist for our perpetual motion mill. We cruise through all of mankind’s and cosmic knowledge of the universe like a baleen whale whose huge mouth’s fills with water and krill as it swims. When fullup, the baleen (sieve) lowers to keep the food, and spills out the water while the whale dines on several tons of delicious krill. We eternal youths will sieve and dine on countless tons of human and universal knowledge on our voyage to the stars. The stars are our books. the galaxies and the cosmos our librarie

The only life worth living is the adventurous life. Of such a life the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid. It is unafraid of what other people think . . .
It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors. It thinks its own thoughts, it reads its own books. It develops its own hobbies, and it is governed by its own conscienc
The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone.
