Foremost, I am a spiritual being having a physical experience.
Even though I am a very pragmatic retired math professor and have been an educator most of my life, what defines me is the fact that I am a believer in the Great Mystery, the Life Force, the Divinity of Universal Love. I believe that long before Earth existed physically, it existed in the mind of the Supreme Scientist. Why was Earth called into existence? That’s a mystery to ponder. I believe in parallel dimensions, quantum physics, and reincarnation. I believe that Jesus came to this planet to remind the inhabitants that compassion is more precious than possessions. I believe in the wisdom of the Divine Feminine. I also believe in spirit guides and angels, as well as discarnates. These beliefs have been and continue to be influential on my post-retirement pursuits of wildlife painting and writing. And, saving the best for last, I am blessed to have a daughter, two sons, three granddaughters, one grandson, and a loving woodsman poet partner.
