Let’s see, I value my gay/lesbian friends and I am taking the stand that Paul was dated about such things as sexual orientation, and marriage equality! I take another stand about modern, the “Jewish Community.” Paul could not have foreseen the turn around of bigotry, and if Methodists take the stances that women are unequal, that gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender people have no rights or that modern Jews are somehow disparaged I will find a different church “who” does not discriminate against these people. The next step is to say that Black People, or Asian People, or any minority is wrong. I know that The Church of Christ or that Episcopalians are not in the camp of description, and though as I once was a Unitarian Universalist this church does allow for diversity theoretically speaking that all these churches allow for a broad interpretation of scriptures of all types AND Christianity.

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.
