Belief is Never the Question

As my tale unwinds, I have come to know her in many ways such that we do what is commanded because of You. It is forever for me to obey her, and thereby obey Thy Word, for the Word is with me, and in me I become a servant. Yet, it is also in that we accept Thee finally and my duties as a person wishing to have another reassurance, but I know one is enough, and I shall continue to attend Church, to Pray, and to Meditate in such a fashion as was handed down from Japan. This Japanese meditation will help me with focus, breath, which is in You, and submission, acceptance of Thy Word for comparison of words, and this will be my holy duty, thereby to relax and undergo stark procedures for my wife and daughter in order to extend my life. I am not like those one reads about who throws away the pills, and becomes instantly healthy. I have much writing yes to undertake and in this more learning

of acceptance.

I was a University and community college instructor before retiring. I also worked in fast food restaurants, and retail stores. I am an ordinary man writing for because I want to write and because my education prepared me to write; BA English lit, MA English, EdS higher education, and MFA creative writing, free verse poetry and essays. Blogs are an answer to high-priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to self-publish his first 1000 copies of the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass because in 1855 poetry did not sell. Most poets make a living in other ways than writing. Wallace Stevens was an insurance executive, and TS Eliot was a banker. Many writers teach, and always there have been writers who have written because they needed to express their thoughts and feelings. They wrote not necessarily to make money but to express "the old universal truths of the human heart" according to Faulkner. Here I reach a wider audience I missed than by self-publishing, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience for less expense than self-publishing. I self-published my first books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude; poetry and photo books which were easier to self-publish than to seek a not to seek a publisher company. This blog allows me to write for an interested audience because I write poetry and personal essays. I write for a friendly audience and present to you a slice of my writing. Perhaps you will enjoy what you read.
