I am a Renaissance Guy in the sense that I know a little about a lot.
I am a teacher with a B. A. and an M. A. in English. I know, I’m some people’s worst nightmare.
I am an amateur musician with eclectic taste in music. I play the piano and the guitar. I listen mostly to classical, jazz, folk, and bluegrass, but I will listen to any music if it is good.
I am a husband and father, currently between 40 and 50 years old.
Most importantly I am a follower of Jesus the Messiah. My spiritual journey has lots of interesting twists and turns.
I write about all the things I am most interested in–literature, spirituality, music, history, genealogy, and politics.
