about the Author

about the Author, image 2Birth:  My birth was rather sudden and unexpected and altogether not promising.  It produced a lot of drama and fear and certainly no hope.
Rebirth:  My rebirth seemed to be the natural thing to do.  It produced uncertainty for some and certain hope for me.

Student Life:  My student life was normally abnormal.  My associates degree was funded at a junior college by scholarships I knew nothing about until I was awarded them.

Adult Life:  My professional life began by applying for a job for which technically I was not qualified.  My mother sat in the reception area during the interview.  That was about the Author, image 3the beginning of a 16-year investment as a medical transcriptionist.  Following that investment in medical institutions, my public ministry life as a missionary began, continuing for six years firstly in the UK and secondly in the US.  Life in the present is one of leisure in the “deep south of the colonies”, allowing ample time to pursue personal pleasures, one being writing and all that it entails, as well as volunteering in various ministries.

“There is meaning and purpose in everything that happens.  There is value to every soul.”

As stated earlier, my birth was rather sudden and unexpected and altogether not promising.  It produced a lot of drama and fear and certainly no hope.  Actually, my birth was significantly premature according to the timing of medical professionals.  According to the diagnosis of medical professionals given when I was at the age of three, cerebral palsy became a defining tag in life in the opinion of many.  It produced uncertainty for some.  I became aware of a certain hope a few short years later which became a defining tag in life in my opinion.  The Lover, the source of a certain hope, tends to override earthly professionals, medical or otherwise.

Anywho, thanks again for stopping by, and enjoy your blogging…..


    • Thank you, Anne. I happen to agree with your post. Outpatient surgery may be more “economical” financially but there is certainly a high price to pay for the patient and caregivers.
