Writing is a pastime that I enjoy. It is often cathartic.
I try to be transparent, so that others might find a point of reflection in what they read. I want to maintain an equilibrium that conveys what is happening inside of me without sounding as if my case were outside of the parameters of normal life experience.
It is challenging. Each post represents my best effort at the time. Nothing is published impulsively.
My spontaneity is in place when humor is involved... but after unexpected questions or confrontation, I seldom feel that my answers were adequate. By the time I work that out in writing, I think that I have responded more correctly and completely.
Sometimes I write because I am lonely... just looking to find a kindred spirit along the way. There are so many possibilities for that now that we have Internet.
Do I want to market a blog? Shouldn't it look more professional? For now, my base criterion is: ”simple is ok.” I want it to be about the words.
If I do this well, it could turn into something of a legacy. After I am gone, grandkids and great grandkids might have a way to know more about me. Good enough for me!

Yes...! As of July 5, 2020, my book is now available on Amazon.com.
It's a new book about an old problem: the cross and the crown… the Gospel and politics… do they mix? Should they mix?
If my words generate some reflection and healthy conversation—as in more light and less heat—I will be satisfied.

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." -Matthew 13:44
