Collectives is a collection of 97 essays that were published in the Santa Ynez Valley News (in Santa Barbara County, Calif.) between 1996 and 1999.

Collectives contains spontaneous, stream of consciousness writings that offer an enchanting, integrated view of the world, a bridge connecting the inner and the outer, the local and the universal, the timely and the timeless. These rhythmic ramblings are upbeat and uplifting, informative and inspirational.Unlike most articles that appear in newspapers, these 800-1,000 word essays are not your typical who-what-where- why-when-type pieces that focus on some current event. Instead, they strive for a universality such that anyone who can read and understand English could read them, anywhere and at any time,and get something from them.

About the Author:

Ron Colone was born in 1959 in Detroit, Mich. As a youth, he excelled in sports, and picked up stories and philosophies from the mages, the sages, the Sufis and the singer-songwriters. He attended the University of Pennsylvania and Arizona State University, where he participated in intercollegiate athletics while earning Bachelor of Science degrees in Bio-Physics and Physiological Psychology. Colone has traveled extensively throughout Europe and North America, including years of grassroots touring with the musical artist Michael On Fire. RC makes his home in California's Santa Ynez Valley, where he writes a column, publishes a magazine, archives music and coaches high school sports, while continuing to work to expand his breathing technology, improve his memory and strive for the divine.

Review:

"Ron's 'Perspectives' are a return to normalcy indeed. Not divisive, not preachy, not full of vapid answers." -- The Book Loft newsletter

"Ron's insightful musings are as much steeped in the ways of exploration as they are in discovery." -- Santa Ynez Valley News

"Ron's insightful overlays of science, art and spirituality are always interesting and heartening." -- unsolicited letter to publisher
