Adams Millpond Reflection Oil Paint Rendered — Goodale State Park, Camden, South Carolina
Noise, complexity and drama
run our life.

Emptiness, stillness and silence
wait their turn.

We just want to be happy.

That's pretty much it. 

What we do with it
from this point on
tells the tale.

Won't somebody tell us
how to be happy?

All of the time?

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.
