Welcome to my website!  Much has happened to my life, and I decided to “share” my thoughts on a regular basis. I Learned in AA, it is best to “Listen and Share”.  My writings, pictures, and videos, I am sharing are mine and are for me to share.  Throughout my life, I have learned the simple truth, to be “alive” is to believe in God, Faith, Hope, Love, and Life!

I begin with this simple passage I found in 1987:

On Creativity

The man who follows the crowd, will usually get no further than the crowd.

The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.

Creativity in living is not without its attendant difficulty, for peculiarity breeds contempt. And the unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they’ll say it was obvious all along.

You have two choices in life. You can dissolve into the main stream or you can be distinct. To be distinct you must be different. To be different you must strive to be what no one else but you can be.

I end my words with this quote from me, “”See me as I am, Not as I was”
