John P. Hinton, aka Muttering Madzub, is a contemplative poet, writer, blogger, artist, musician and gardener. A student of compassionate Being, learning to live in the moment …writing, drawing, singing, and speaking — uncensored, irreverent, unconventional and unrefined. John pushes the envelope of accepted thought and dogma with an invitation to take off the mask and look into the mirror. He’s been known to throw in a bit of religion, politics and social commentary as well. This Muttering Madzub questions safe havens of belief — ideas of self, god, and the universe. Phoenix, Arizona is home where John lives on Karma Farma with his wife Debra, Karma Kitty, fish and feral felines.
