An Introduction to This Blog, Spiders from Heaven
This is my blog, Spiders from Heaven. It’s named after a book (my first and hopefully not my last) that I have written about my experience with adopting two daughters from Asia. In this space, I plan to write as often as I can about what’s going on around me, what’s important to me at the moment, and the thoughts and ideas that come from this.
I live on a small acreage outside Manhattan, Kansas, and recently retired from a lifetime career of teaching English as a Second Language. I want to now use my work time for art and writing. At an interview that will be used in a short documentary for a journalism class at K-State (that I plan to post when it’s done), I was asked why it’s important for my creative endeavors to go public. I could only answer that if you believe you have something of value to say and to give the world, in whatever unique form that is yours, then it makes no sense to keep it hidden. I hope you will find here something that is worth reading, something that may add to your day and your own dealings with trying to make the most of your time here on earth. And remember, even spiders come from heaven
