There is a Holy Ghost, a Spirit of the Universe which all receiving, all-pervading brings from world to shining world revolves and gives comfort to me as I wait for minimal intervention, for in “Him all things are possible.” For Christ Jesus in whom I believe might bring healing, and as one yes as I believe, let lessons of healing come forth, for “I stand in a Gyre” as Yeats who was only passingly Christian and Repent of my disbelief, and Oh Lord, all things are possible, as you drove out my disbelief, and brought to me “normal behavior, I pray and in supplication to the Father’s great glory, and your intercession on my behalf, I am beginning to understand more about faith, and as I rose again in my legs to walk again, and realizing what I never did before, please oh God, through Jesus, as I am the lamb brought from that which is not whole to the small thing, givver of wool, provider of milk, and finally me asking for what we have left in our new found belief, I pray, increase my belief, my asking of reality, Thy reality which I see clearly that I shall die and live on in shining verily asking and waiting for, oh Lord, for Thy deliveriance I pray, yeas Halliluja and great praises, I ask for belief and the happiness of Thy might hand to give me such healing which is possible! In Jesus mighty Name, Amen, and Amen.

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.
