You are young my friend.

A weak heart may beat in a young chest and a strong heart in old chest.

It is how we perceive the world that determines our attitude and how we live this gift.

I admire your risk and willingness to tackle a new adventure in the middle of your life.

I entered college in 1979. I was on track as a Chemistry major. I wrote so poorly that I ended up taking a remedial writing class. Never saw the importance of writing in high school.

Well, my life took a different turn.

I returned to college in my mid-thirties. It was during that time that an English professor unlocked my passion for writing.

It went unmet until I was in my fifties. Here I am writing — 57 — and posting frequently because I love to share a story in prose and poetry.

Keep telling your story.

Writer, philosopher, humorist, observer of life, an all-around lovable guy.
