About

Hello readers!  I hope you will enjoy this site with my comments about historical and current events, and my thoughts both spiritual and secular on a variety of subjects. I write because I love to, and because something inside wants to express itself, to share with anyone who’s got the time to take a look at what I’m all about. I know, that sounds so transcendental. Spiritual. Sappy and romantic, but it is, nonetheless, the way I am. Over time I hope to post random thoughts on just about anything. I fell in love with reading in first grade, the very first day I discovered what those words meant in a little book about Dick and Jane and their dog Spot. I became irrevocably fullsizerenderattracted to poetry when I saw Robert Frost recite from memory his thoughts at JFK’s inauguration. He opened the door to Shelley, Byron, Whitman and Sandburg, inspiring me to scribble a few lines of verse myself.

I’ve recently retired after having been in the advertising profession for over 40 years as a designer/creative director. My taste in music varies in a rich spectrum from Telemann, Gershwin, and Coldplay to deadmau5. I’m a Sagittarius but it doesn’t matter because I am born again in Christ. I like museums, coffee, history, English lit, Colorado, most people, and pizza. I am in awe and so thankful for sharing a simple but full life with my wife/best friend of over 47 years, and our phenomenal family of three adult children, their spouses and our eight grandchildren, a couple of whom are already teenagers. I love studying the Bible, hanging with my close buddies, NBA basketball, especially the Timberwolves, and our little Morkie, Emma Rose. I agree with Ferris Bueller, when at the end of the film he says, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.”  I firmly believe there are no coincidences in life, and that we can affect our destinies by intersecting with others. Lets enjoy one together right now!

  1. I like Colorado, too. Spent more than 40 years around the Front Range and down south.
