Portland Headlight at Dawn 09/26/2007, Oil Paint Rendered — Portland, Maine
What is your soul's true joy?
Your heart's delight?
What sends your little toes tapping
and your little feet dancing?

How often do you do those things?
For how long?

Why not longer,
more often?

My lists are long,
and I generally do something 
on a list or two
and when I'm not doing it,
I'm thinking about doing it.
Planning to do it.
Looking forward to doing it.

That's one of the childlike things about me.

Nurture the child within!
Nourish your inner child!
Take your child out to play!

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
