Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My heart is with God and my brain is on a dozen varieties of
things: stories, philosophies, emotions, adventures, memories,
hopes, and practical plans. I enjoy a balance of intellectual and
athletic life and can have fun in nearly any game (sport,
boardgame, video game, you name it!).
I'm an old soul who's always getting accused of being as playful as
a child. I like the combination. Reading Dr. Seuss while thinking
metaphysics will do that to ya!
I love color, whimsy, and imagination. I thrive when I have a
puzzle or a game on my mind to scheme my way through. Besides that,
there's nothing better than spending quiet hours with dear long
I'm still writing now, but here's a poem from long ago when I was a
The Rabbit and The Dane
With lively step and lithy leap
The rabbit raced upon the steep
Unyielding hill, which higher rose
And gave the rabbit no repose.
Beyond him loped the growling dane
(They call him there, The Rabbit's Bane)
Who bared his teeth and chased his foe
Up from the fertile plain below.
The hill afforded cave nor hole
And -- as the running took its toll --
The rabbit wished he could not see
The dane approach so rapidly.
The rabbit failed to keep the lead!
And stumbled, in a path of weed.
But when the canine reached the bed,
He let the rabbit run ahead.
This dane and rabbit often meet
And -- not for life and not for meat --
Begin anew their fearful play
To see who's more in shape that day.
