Do you have problems reconciling who you are, why you are hear, or what is the point in all this madness? Maybe you want someone to listen or affirm where you are or share a perspective. I do not claim to know anything other than my own affirming experience after a long honest life of self reflection and analysis of those around me. All we do together in and around each other is of value.
I am a committed christian with a small c. This can only mean i am still thinking about it, welcoming debate, cross culture discussion, as well as the ecumenical needs we face for the future. The art work reflects the challenges and multi dimensional aspects of my artist mind.
I am an author by surprise, someone asked me to write down what i think, so i did. The words have proven to help those who seek. I can be a mentor to that person who is seeking and determined to find their own truth, humbly categorizing myself as a spiritual director. Labels are often not the way to tell anyone who you are, you have to “click” with a teacher or mentor to learn from them.
peace be with you
