About me

Gender MALE
Industry Museums or Libraries
Occupation Writer
Location Indian Orchard, MA, United States
Introduction I am a writer and a historian. Libraries, books, music, art, pop culture, science fiction, fantasy all that you have read in my bio and more is me. I enjoy hikes on the mountain looking down at my world below. I enjoy listening to the sprinkling of the rain on the rooftop. I have lived a life. That life, all my experiences, finds its way into my writing. I live for the time spent with all my family, friends and familiars for that is what life is about. I am happy when I make someone smile. I am happy with my life and content to wait for what I know the future promises me. Certain treasures in life are simply that important.

Do you believe that forks are evolved from spoons?

No. Can I remember the story? The knife and spoon were the chosen of the European courts of the Middle-Ages. Forks were looked down upon as inferior. I do know that those who resided outside Christendom used forks. The Answer? No, still, I feel that the pitchfork is the progenitor of the fork. Over time it was shrunk down. I really should have looked this up first, but hey I am sticking with this!
