About me

Location Springfield, Missouri, United States
Introduction A citizen of Springfield, Missouri who likes to write and needed a place to do it. I am involved in my church; follow City government, as able; value my family and friends; like to cook and; enjoy creative crafting. For a time I covered the Springfield City Council for a local Community newspaper and was told I was the first "beat writer" the Community Free Press ever had. I'm pleased and proud to have broken that ground for them. Today, after having relinquished that position, I'm just enjoying life and looking for new opportunities where they can be had. I've never understood why anyone cares what I think, and I still don't.
Interests Christianity, Family, City government, Politics, Children's Ministries, Gardening, Baking and Cooking, Occasional Thinking :)
Favorite Movies Being There, Little Big Man, all Indiana Jones movies, Old Pink Panther Movies...
Favorite Music I like any kind of good music and recognize that, sort of like art, good music, rather than being in the eye of the beholder, is in the ear of the listener. Some of my favorite artists are, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, Yes, Greasy Greens (try to find something on them, I dare ya!) Dire Straits. I usually prefer album (CD) cuts rather than hits and this was not an exhaustive list of my favorite artists. In the 70's, my highschool years, I listened to Leo Sayer, Cat Stevens, Kris Kristopherson, Carole King and Boston.
Favorite Books The Bible, Herzog, In Watermelon Sugar, Mere Christianity, Mr. Sammler's Planet, A Confederate General in King Arthur's Court....
