To Be Honest, and Follow the Path!

Oh God of my understanding, my Higher Powers, Those who have redeemed my eternal soul and thereby allowed me to make my own decisions, I chose, to be honest with my wife thereby honoring my marriage vow to obey, and I shall in my heart be clean of any dishonesty, and I will since my disclosures over the last seven years maintain as of late what she has requested in terms of my immediate family. My said papers to will

be burned or withheld. I am an honest person and will pay my friend Mark the full $15.00 which I have agreed to with Mark, The second installment of $5.00 shall be made the night of May 15, 2018. If Mark is not present he will receive $10.00 on Saturday evening May 20, 2018, thus paying off our full agreement as I have given him $5.00 on Tuesday, May 8, 2018. The total payment of $15.00 will have been made to Mark by May 22, 2018. I am a totally honest person.

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.
