My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. I am a creative, complete and connected man.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. It's a simple theological one. Religious people read on, non-religious people skip this.  Scripture quotes Jesus as saying that "where ever two or more are gathered, there am I". He was clearly talking about establishing truth as the Old Testament directed the Jews to do (hence the two or more witnesses). He IS Truth. Therefore he is there with them, establishing himself. BUT Christians often say, "Hey we have two or more among us, Jesus is here." Hmm. So when i was alone and prayed to him too enter my life, I should have had one or two more people with me? Hmm. It's a wee bit ill-thought-out, I'd say.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Tom Doniphon - the actual "Man who shot Liberty Valance".

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I think I'd like to paint. That would be so much like writing. The word pictures as an author would become shaded images on the canvas. I think that would be really creative.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I think my eyes are fairly noticeable, when people meet me. I love to speak through my eyes.
