Walter's Visions

This section of WalVisions has been created to present a number of Walter's views on a wide array of topics.  The world (not to mention the Cosmos!) is a diverse and spectacular place, one that is underappreciated by an alarming number of people as they are engulfed in their day to day existence.  We hope to be able to help put everyday living and a variety of events in their proper perspectives, and possibly add to the order in what may appear to be a disordered world.  This section is likely to become the most supplemented and interesting on the WalVisions site - if you like the ideas presented here, we suggest you return regularly for new material.  Please feel free to contact Walter with any comments you may have.
