My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

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

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd like to meet Mark Twain. I'd ask him why he REALLY waited for a century to have his Autobiography published - with all his straight forwardness during his lifetime, why did he fail in his courage to tell people what he really thought of them and their lives when he was alive? May we all have "short accounts" with people today, during our lifetimes.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My bride, Susan. She was the first of her family line to graduate from college and to teach school. She married me with only a vision and a series of vague goals and has helped me turn those into life-changing eternally impactful accomplishments.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Happiness is not what I desire.

Joy is.

Joy comes from being thankful for all that we have AND all that we do not have.

My joy comes from appreciating God's love and His faithfulness to each of us - even when we don;t believe in Him.

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.
