About Me

I grew up with two sisters in rural northern Indiana.  All of us, except Dad, were members of Mom’s fundamentalist church.  Dad was a cynic.  Later I went to college but it didn’t lead to any success.  I lived various places and married late.  That says something about where I come from.  For over six years now I have worked full-time maintenance at a supermarket in Maine.  My wife and I are still happily married after twenty years and about that I am very thankful.  I guess that says something about where I am now.

But none of this says anything important about who I have become.  And I really can’t tell you anything about who I may become tomorrow.  I don’t know.  As in Joni Mitchell’s song, I feel I am just a child of God walking along the road.  And if you want to know who God is, I wish us both luck.  I’m not egotistical enough or deluded enough to think I can comprehend the Divine.  But sometimes I think I see small reflections of something.  And I keep looking.
