  • 5 things I love about being an artist

    Since I recently wrote a blog post about “5 things that can suck about being an artist”, I thought it would be good to balance it out with 5 things I absolutely LOVE about being an artist! 1) Getting to work mostly at home, whenever and wherever I desire and in whatever clothing I desire […]

  • The three types of human relationships as I see it

    Maybe it is because of the logical thinking connected with Asperger’s Syndrome, but I tend to categorize most things in my life. Today I want to talk about the three categories I see in human relationships. This is somewhat from a spiritual point of view, since I myself am deeply interested in spirituality. Category #1 […]

  • Religion is getting harder to defend…but I still have hope.

    I love God. I always have and likely always will. I’ve always had a deep interest in spirituality…even before I understood religion.

  • The three points of view…in spirituality?

But I found it interesting when I came across a magazine article stating that these points of view apply to our religious or spiritual natures […]

  • Love – in theory and practice

    Maybe I have read too many near-death experiences or just have too much time on my hands, but I often think about the end of my life and how I will feel if I undergo a life review. While pondering, I start to wonder if the life review would make me regret some of the […]

  • Finding the blessings in our pain

    Recently there has been quite a bit of pain introduced into my life.  Not necessarily my own, but that of my grandfather, who is dying from stage 4 lung and bone cancer, and from my new foster son who is dealing with emotional issues no one at his age should have to encounter.  Of course, […]
