Fracking, Drilling, and Trying to Stay Optimistic

I hope you all know that this blog is intended to encourage you to read The Fourth Moment or suggest it to a friend. The challenge is getting the word out, but I only have one mailing list. I apologize for that. Nevertheless, I want to use this list to encourage you to follow my blog even as it is intended to promote the book.
I never thought of being a blogger. I do occasionally write letters to the editor but rarely engage on Facebook, especially now that we know half the verbiage on the site isn’t even a legitimate opinion—only propaganda. But my publisher insisted, so I have a blog. Check it out. Love it, hate it— your choice.

I woke up to an NPR report about opening all coastal areas to off-shore drilling. My response was disappointing. “Fracking, drilling, what the hell? It doesn’t matter anymore.” That’s not really me. I care, I protest, I try to make a difference. But my hand is swollen with some sort of recurring arthritis flare up, and I am planning to “get out of Dodge” in the form of a five-month trip around the world, traveling east to west. Follow me on my blog as I try to recapture a love of life and a love of humankind. Oh, and if you haven’t yet read the book, give it a try. It’s on Amazon.

I’m a conversationalist, an observer, a passionate participant in life. And now, in my later years, I’m a recorder of the lessons of my life through essays, stories, and novels. I live in the fourth moment of life, just outside the normal distribution of most people and it is from this place that I write.
