About ... This Site
I used to have a blog called "Eclectic Thinker," and this site could be called "Eclectic Site." There is a blog, and essays, and poems. The blog has entries on a number of topics; if you only want to see the ones that interest you, just click the link on the right to choose a category.
Please sign the guestbook, if you don't mind, and feel free to leave a comment or two. Or, drop me an email. And if you're into RSS, subscribe to one or more of the blog feeds.
About ... Me
I've been writing various things (articles, poems, parts of books) for some years. Blogging is another outlet, as well as a way to add my voice to the mix. I've always been interested in public policy issues, but went from an observer to an activist in the 2000 election. I'm currently (2008) the president of the Metro Democratic Club in Louisville, and involved in some local party work.
As you can tell by looking at the blog topics, I'm also interested in faith, works, and the church, especially of the Christian kind. I've served as a full-time and part-time minister of music most of my life, and in two churches I also served as minister of education. I'm now back "in the pew," but still interested in the intersection of belief and life.
And finally, perhaps as a counter to all this "weighty" interests, I'm into sports. Primarily college football and basketball, but some other sports as well. I'm a fan, yes -- you can see the teams I cheer for on the blog page -- but one of the main reasons I enjoy sports is the human angle: the tales of triumph, of character, of hard work, of team.
