No sarcastic comments about Waco please.  This is a nice place to live.

This is really my alter ego…

I help pay the bills by working as Engineering Manager for a candy manufacturing facility in Waco.

Being a writer is always been something that has been lingering in the back of my mind for as long as I can remember.  For now, it’s an avocation.   I guess my future as a writer depends on whether other people like what I write.  If not, I’ll still keep keep on writing, for my own amusement if nothing else.

For the last 25 years or so I’ve been working to fulfill God’s request of me: to understand His relationship with all of the people of this earth.  There are common threads that run through all races, cultures and religions, not only now but throughout our written history and beyond.  Man’s search for the Divine has been with us for forever, a perpetual part of our being, a fundamental part of how we’re wired.  This task is not easy, especially since it is different than the accepted norm of our culture here in America.  But rest assured, it is very rewarding.

In December 2009, following a routine colonoscopy,  I was diagnosed with colon cancer.  Fortunately it was detected early enough that it was able to be treated by surgery.  I started an online journal, This Too Shall Pass – My Dance with Cancer.  Through support and prayers from family and friends, it has turned from a fearful to a positive experience.

Every day I give thanks for my family and friends.  I appreciate the fun and fellowship that we share.

Many thanks to those who read early versions of the story and made suggestions.  I couldn’t have done it without your input and support.

Finally, to those folks who have been a fleeting part of my life at one time or another, having willingly contributed unnecessary stress, meanness and immaturity upon me and others all in the name of chasing the next promotion:  I forgive you.  I got tired of thinking evil thoughts upon you everytime you crossed my mind.  I sincerely hope that you have gotten down on your knees and asked forgiveness for all of the pain that you caused me and so many others in your quest for corporate immortality.

Remember: the universe ALWAYS evens out.
