Though I love Jesus Christ and feel more beautiful though I am older and enjoying age without most of the problems experienced by most adults my age, and only my arthritis which is quite painful, I will not demand or force by placing my essays on Facebook. If I do place an essay there, it’s content will only be of neutral or artistic content. Soon we will explain the major ideas or stories from my life. Sorry but you if you chose, you’ll endure some wonderful writing because I believe I am not only a writer but a good and sometimes a very good writer.Please accept my decision my dear friends in Christian love because I have many good friends who do not recognize our belief as the necessary part of their lives. If you want you too will enjoy good writing. I truly believe in human harmony, so above all I ask what I write to be in good taste. Thank you for listening for the best writing is best spoken and heard!

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.
