Writing is career number three for me after 30+ years in the Air Force and five years in higher education administration. I am not just a writer but also a learner, learning about everything, every single day, while living my best possible life with my wife and family.
I like to be at home with family, to ride bicycles, to go fishing. My wife and I have an RV, and though we don’t get out in it as much as we want to, it’s a love we both share, along with taking care of our family, our home, our pets. We dabble together in the garden, and work very hard in our yard. I read some, love to eat so learned to cook, and consider myself to be a student of leadership. I have deep interest in history and science fiction, as well. I may someday write about any or all of these topics, and I will likely stray afield and write on other things, too.
Over the past few years, I have looked for and seen what I call the “extra in the ordinary,” and taken lots of pictures trying to capture that extra. I have never had as much time as I would have liked to put my thoughts adjacent to those captured moments, but with retirement from the work force came a good-sized sum of unbooked time on my calendar. I intend to spend at least some of it here.
I hope very much to both give and receive on this group of sites. There's nothing greater than the former, but there's also nothing wrong with the latter. Both have their place, and particularly so in a community of writers.
