Oh my Lord and Savior…Let it be…

I have found ways to show my love and Your love without even mentioning anything about God, or my Savior, or the Holy Spirit–lead with true love, with observation, with simple essence, with kindness, picking up my cloths, keeping the bathroon reasonable (I have never once left the seat up, but other ways), picking up the dishes after a meal, simple compliments about clothing, mentioning her beautiful silver hair, complimenting her clothing, letting her take the lead in teaching about conversation, in teaching me not to assume when I do not know, being positive and kind to strangers and quiet with strangers, letting her take care of me in simple ways, letting her advise me about health, being compliant, understanding and keeping quiet when she wants to talk, asking intelligent questions about her reading, providing provocative conversation, asking Siri on my iPhone (she gave me the phone, one of the most beautiful gifts she’s ever given me, mostly in the way she gave it.) letting her know a million things about her (not all at the same time, not to overwhelm), being patient, never refusing advice, asking for advice, wondering about our daughter, letting her take the lead, showering (sooner than later), exerciseing just for me, never assuming I know more about her than she does, including her in my descions, maintaining an attitude of wonder with her, looking at nature, keeping her informed about my bill payment, understanding the value of a dollar before I spend it, asking her questions because she is mostly smarter that me (THAT IS THE TRUTH).  Leaving all her beliefs to her, always letting her help me, and forever on…

With Love, from Chuck

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.
