|Welcome to My Kavern
I am a librarian, a philosopher of sorts, a student of the great Sanés, a bad poet, and well on my way to becoming a senior citizen. Maybe that explains why one of my favorite activities is visiting cemeteries. Actually, I thank my lucky stars that I made it this far - I could have been glowing from radiation experiments!
I grew up in the 1950's and 1960's in a nice suburban neighborhood in a family that could have been the Nelsons or the Andersons (not the Cleavers - I couldn't stand Beaver's parents!) Since my dad worked for RCA, we always had a television, at least as far back as I can remember.
I am an Episcopalian and, like many folks, Francis of Assisi is my favorite saint. One of the most memorable days of my life was when I saw the Dalai Lama in Washington, DC.
When my mind is muddled, I sometimes visit the outhouse, where I can sit down and think. Occasionally I reflect on the good old days and those visits to the Reading Gaol to see Stewart Harris. I might also play some music, read a book, or watch some TV or a movie.
My interests vary from day to day. I think that Nelson Eddy is the greatest singer who ever lived. But then I am a great fan of Metallica and listen to the local country music station regularly. I have read every Tarzan book, almost saw Star Wars the day it opened (a long story), and love to ride the rails.
Then there are my life's goals - to visit England and Germany to stand on the land of my ancestors and to spend a moment of silence at Wounded Knee.
Ooh! A bat just flew by. It's a good thing he is my friend and a reminder of baseball season!
