Born and raised on a farm in Iowa. Went to a country school k8. Then high school and finished k12. I think I ended up with around a 5th grade education. I became an avid reader, partly because I do have a high IQ, and wanted to know more about so many things. I was caught up in the culture of our society, (dog eat dog, Ayn Rand) with money being the main carrot. I got off that trip at the age of 30, and went from being an ant to a grasshopper. In other words I learned to smell the roses along the way, most every day. I found at the age of 30 that all I really wanted from life was to enjoy it. After several years of seeking the best way to enjoy life, I have found it, at least for me. Spiritual growth, not to be confused with organized religion, is very important to me. Organized religion is great if it is used for knowing the history of those seeking spiritual growth. The way that organized religion is used today to control the masses through the use of myths, and phony ideology is repugnant in my view.
I do have a good sense of humor.
