I am a self-published
(here) author, poet, musician, composer,
photographer, and nature lover.
My wife and I are
I record and produce my music myself in my home recording studio
located twenty minutes from Bowling Green Ky., which is the place
Corvettes are made.
I am an 'iconoclast
Until the 2004 presidential election,
in which I
voted for the first time in an attempt to stop the spreading evil that was epitomized
by G.W. Bush,
I had never voted, for what was to me obvious
: politicians, judges [the 2000 Presidential Election Right-Wing Coup by the
Supreme Court], etc.
I was 16 when Nixon was re-elected in 1972, with Watergate
already in the news, and his Democrat opponent George McGovern only won one state- his own
[he was the best progressive candidate till Bernie Sanders in 2016].
At that moment I decided there was no hope for America if the people were so
Then in 1980 came Reagan, "666" himself, who did more long-term damage
(deregulation, busting unions, "trickle-down [carrot on a stick] economics"
hogwash) to this country than any other President,
getting himself elected by bribing the Iranians not to release the hostages
before the election...[except maybe G.W.Bush and his needless murderous wars
and resulting destabilization of the Mid-East-who was put in power in
that right-wing Coup by the Supreme Court in 2000].
I now always vote, and always vote for the most
Worst of all, now
Trump is making those villains seem mild by comparison...
I am in my opinion a very spiritual person who's beliefs are similar to
what's called New Age.
I believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ yet the Bible is not, shall
we say, exact.
I believe in a Higher order of Being we refer to as God, and said Being can
and does interact here.
I believe, using the metaphor of the garden of Eden, that the tree of the
Knowledge of Good and Evil was placed there by God so that when Humans had
sufficiently matured (evolved) and were ready to begin the journey (kicked
out of garden) of self-awareness, of conscience, lucidity, of morality
beyond instinct, then the God who knows all past. present. and future knew
that one day his creation would be ready for Truth and prepared for that
time in advance. This story is a parable that has to be deciphered, like
most of the Bible.
I believe that God sent his Son, his "Avatar",
"Messiah"," Christ", as a Savior, yet the
salvation is not one of a
as much as it is one ofHis Message,
a message that is not practiced by mainstream
"Christians", fundamentalists or otherwise.
They just do not GET IT.
