- Husband, father, grandfather, friend...a few of the roles acquired in 62 years of living. I keep an upbeat attitude, loving humor and the singular freedom of a perfect laugh. I don't let curmudgeons ruin my day; that only gives them power over me. Having experienced death once, I no longer fear it, although I am still frightened by the process of dying. I love to write because it allows me the freedom to vent those complex feelings that bounce restlessly off the walls of my mind; and express the beauty that can only be found within the human heart.

A Blessing for a Cherokee Wedding
The flag of the Cherokee Nation from Cherokee.org
Now you will feel no rain
For each of you will be shelter to the other
Now you will feel no cold
For each of you will be warmth to the other
Now there is no loneliness for you
For each of you will be a companion to the other.
You are two persons
But there is only one life before you
Enter now into the day of your togetherness
And may your days be good and long together.
