Welcome to As I Lay Living!
I have created this blog to share my passion for creative writing!
Simply put, I am an older gentleman who has led a full life that has been rich with experience. I have been a war resistor, a high school art teacher, a television producer, and a high school teacher of English as a Second Language.
On this site, I have posted articles and essays I have written that are sometimes humourous, sometimes reflective, sometimes political, sometimes simply observations of phenomena. I hope that my thoughts and observations may touch the human spirit, strike chords of agreement or recognition and perhaps tickle a few funnybones along the way. Simply click on the “BLOG” tab at the top of the page to read any of the 200+ entries I’ve made so far. Or choose a folder of your interest (humour, fiction, political, reflective) and explore it that way.
A summary of my journey to the present may be read at Bloggography. The title of this blog was taken from the longish (6000 word) autobiographical essay of the same name, As I Lay Living . If you’d really care to know more than a “little” about me, you may read that tome. If you read it, beginning to end, every word of it, you will qualify yourself to be called a bona fide masochist! Congratulations! Read every posting and you will know nearly everything about me. I hope I’m okay with that!
