Occasionally incorporating a spiritual approach, this writing investigates diverse challenges one tends to find in a sometimes-uncertain modern society. The perspective influenced over a period by considering people and ideas, with a particular understanding of human nature are highlighted qualities relating to identity, belief, and love in various forms.

From the relative complexities of social interaction to the strength that comes in a moment of introspection, reflections cover a range of concepts and scenarios, designed to mark phases of my own life’s journey as well as to enlighten and provoke thought for the reader who expresses an interest in a related element. Furthermore, it discusses at length how I have lived with posttraumatic stress disorder and its effects on me, and my family.

Much of the writing contemplates the place of the individual within a larger context of being. “Our dialogue focuses on the likely impact of specific “choices” and “behavior.” Written as a speaker would, it outlines a method toward transcending “irrational thoughts and beliefs.” Other entries, such as my Vietnam War poems seek to characterize some of the physical, emotional and psychological considerations that might define a “soldiers” experience and much about spirituality and God is discussed as an outcome and to present a hope for future and present times.
