Last year I took a Keyline course with Owen Hablutzel and Neil Bertrando (it was a pinnacle experience). During the class a student said that Owen and Neil should write a book, and they said you would probably be the man to do so. They have extensive knowledge of Keyline design and implementation, but said you were "light years" ahead of them. Have you ever considered writing a more modern Keyline book? P.A. Yeomans' books are great, but do lack all of the modern Keyline innovations, as well as nice photography of functioning systems. I have seen a lot of the positive changes you are making around the world and would love to see a book full of your knowledge.

I have read about yeoman's work on internet, and it also needs to be all explain in a much easier way for a better access to the information.
Basically, i would first need to understand better the basic vocabulary of key lines.
Or else, it is not possible to further understand any course, any text...

Thanks for the note Brent. I am onto it and am about a 1/3rd of the way into what is a 3 book project. As I think I said yesterday its a pretty massive effort to write something of the type that I am when you have so many demands...but I will get there! Very nice of Owen and Neil to say that and quite frankly, and without sounding like a big-head, I think that they are right. I've been involved in Keyline since I was a child on our family farm and its one of the things that dominates my thoughts on a daily basis, whether its my own adaptation into the Regen10 or the novel and revelationary patterns of Keyline geometry...but still it has to be done and if I don't do it first then someone else will and people will be the judge which is more effective...We'll get there!! Cheers, Darren
