A breathtaking Arizona sunset

A breathtaking Arizona sunset


Welcome to My Blog

I started writing this blog on May 31, 2013:  just two weeks after arriving in the city of Phoenix, Arizona from the place I had called home for the previous 20 years – Orlando, Florida.  The circumstances that brought me to this place are nothing short of miraculous. Wil and I are convinced that God actively interceded in our lives to bring us together. But you can read all about that in the early posts you will find in this blog. What I do wish to convey to all who read the thoughts and experiences I share here is that I share them for a number of reasons:

1.  to let our family and friends know what is happening in our lives

2. because,  in the same way as an artisan picks and chooses just the right beads to string together and just the right pattern in which to do so to create a beautiful necklace, so do I enjoy stringing just the right words together and in just the right pattern to create pleasurable reading that will not just inform, but also evoke emotion, whether it be humor, empathy, introspection, inspiration, and so on

3. to hopefully touch the hearts or minds (or both) of those who read my posts – whether they be family, friends, or total strangers -and, since the human condition is a commonality we all share, it is my hope that somehow, my words will have relevance and a positive effect on those who read them

This page will lead you to News From Arizona and also to A New Beginning, the website created for our wedding.  As you read posts, please feel free to share your thoughts, reactions, impressions, questions, or anything else you wish.  I look forward to reading them.

Blessings to you,

    Hope you get this I’m trying to reach you. My brother was Geoffrey will a singer who worked your father I believe. I’m trying find pictures of him singing if I can. Can you help me? Or tell me the name of the church or someone who might have the pictures.
    Hope this finds you well and blooming inArizona.

    I’m sorry for the delay in responding; I hardly come on this blog anymore. I’m afraid I don’t know who you’re talking about. Who do you think my father was? I think you may have the wrong person. Maybe if you give me more information???
