Welcome to my blog, I’m glad that you are visiting. Here is where I share what I learn along my life’s journey. I believe in always looking at the world from a variety of perspectives and being a life-long autodidact. I love to read and write, and the written word is my passion. In the grand tradition of the longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer, I offer you short essays, observations, and aphorisms, for your entertainment and enlightenment. May you live the examined life in harmony with yourself, the people around you, and your environment.
