Get Off The Tracks!!! 07-24-2015 Oil Paint Rendered — Union County, South Carolina
The missing ingredient in the lives
of present day citizens of the United States
is the study of the arts! 
Music, Poetry, Dance, Song, Pottery, Sculpture,
Drawing, Painting...

Wordless, intuitive, instinctive, knowing/doing 
the right thing 
at the right time 
in the right place 
in the right way!

Learning to listen
to the voice of silence,

How do the moved
live so as to place themselves
in the service of the mover?

Knowing that
is the place of the arts
in our life.

We are all artists
of one stripe or another.

We knew that when we were 
two years old.
Then, somebody told us we weren't.

Everyone has a camera phone.
Begin to photograph the world!
Bring your inner artist to life!
While the light lasts!

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.
