— Early Morning, Monday, August 15th, 2016 – My brother Bob was supposed to be born on this date in 1958.
— Last night I began working on this page to try to make it look “inviting” and not too scary for casual visitors.
— I’ve been a writer since early childhood when a grandfather told me in a dream that somebody important where he was thought I could be a pretty good writer and if I said, “Yes-” certain things in this life would change.
— I said, “Yes.”
— & Since then I’ve delivered flyers for a neighbourhood grocery store, delivered newspapers for the New York Times, USA Today and other newspapers. Been a ‘gopher’ for a decent sized city’s Newspaper, worked for almost nothing in my grandparent’s Motel, Restaurant and Gas Station in Vermont — Served in the US Navy where I ran a soda fountain on a “Destroyer Tender”/ repair ship for mostly Destroyers – Worked as every kind of clerk in two Trucking Company offices – delivered and sorted mail for 9 years with the US Postal ‘Service’ —& escaped with my soul intact (I think-) — Been the director of Public Services for a 99.9% volunteer community radio station [ WPKN in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA ] – been a production assistant ( responsible for recording, editing, and playback of town council meetings – among other news gathering assignments) – for a Canadian Cable Television Provider – been unemployed — worked part time jobs – painted houses, put furniture together for an ivy league university in Ithaca, New York – cleaned businesses – and worked a bunch of other jobs I tried hard to forgot about to maintain any sanity I’ve been able to fake for all these years.
And I’ve been a spiritual seeker since the age of twelve when I first cried myself to sleep thinking God just might be dead like somebody told me, or maybe blind drunk in some nasty big city alley – or who knows?
— A certain percentage of us humans in every generation are really driven to learn everything we can about God and not take anyone else’s word for Who or What God might be – and experience as close a relationship as we can with – Whatever or Whoever – He or She of ‘Whatever’ (Force? Energy? Collective Over-Soul?) – might be. So far, I’m convinced that “God” is too big to define in human terms, is a lot of things including the Loving, Merciful, Forgiving, Wise Intelligence that motivates Angels to interfere with worst case scenarios here on Earth and Inspires the best of us to try harder than we believed we could to do whatever we can to make this life as pleasant and inspirational to everyone and everything we can- And I’ve come to believe that God suffers intensely over the way people treat each other while they claim, and probably even believe, they are committing their (unintentional?) harm in God’s name.
I can probably ‘copy and paste’ a lot of information here – but it might be a lot easier to grab another WordPress blog and pop it in here, turn off comments and use that exclusively for Ancestry / Geneology stuff.
This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:
Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
…or something like this:
The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
