That Some Would Throw Trash

Yes, there are many, some of my friends, who would through trash at Christians, but in the world of 100 A.D. Rome was all, and Christ a simple blip on the radar of gargantuan Rome. My mother faced similar circumstances as she was torn away from her parent, father dead, and in reality, no where for Dorothy, and Ruth, and George to go. Ruthie was easy, just send her thirty or so miles away to the Woodward St. Hospital for the Retarded, never mind the words developmentally disabled. My uncle George wasn’t hard either because he was a boy. Boys went to the YMCA Boys’ Home. My mother, Dorothy, was placed in a foster home where she slept in a wet root cellar, and worked during the day. The town’s people rose up to take the girl away for placement at the State Reformatory for Girls. Finally my mother came to live with the Knott family in Sioux City, Iowa where she completed high school, and learned survival skills. When the Knott family moved to California, Dorothy went along.

I was a University and community college instructor. I am an ordinary man writing for artistic reasons, and simple taste-- blogs are an answer to high priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to print his 1000 paper books himself because in 1855 poetry did not sell. It does not sell now unless you have a Pulitzer Prize, and even then, the poet usually makes a living in other ways than poetry. In all ages there have been writers writing out of their own reasons. I am an older man with fewer computer skills than my daughter. Blogs let me reach an audience missed by books, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience. My two self-published books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude, Charles E Taylor, MFA, Xlibris.com and a third coming out sometime next year, through The Book Patch: For Patty Brown... satisfy needs to hold books, and, yet, still read as electronic books which are easier to produce than paper books. The blog allowed me to write a compendium of my writing. I can combine composition with production. Wordpress provides word processing with production. When the writer finishes writing they press publish and then a finished piece. I’m happy to present to you a slice of my personal writing. Do enjoy what you read!
