Welcome to As I Lay Living!
I have created this blog to share my passion for creative writing! Simply click on the “BLOG” tab at the top of the page, or, if you’re on a phone, click the circle with the three horizontal lines to find more choices. Then you can read any of the 500+ entries I’ve made so far. Or choose a folder of your interest (Humour, Fiction, Political, Reflective, or that very naughty one, Eros) and explore it that way.
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, a high school teacher of English as a Second Language and now, a retired senior, still full of the dickens, but mostly unable to carry out all of my physically demanding or deliciously salacious imaginings.
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.
A summary of my journey to the present may be read at Bloggography, or the more recent experiences only, Confess-to-Success/. 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!
PS: I have a mystery American reader who seems to be sending me a message of indistinct intent by reading and re-reading only the links contained on this intro page. I am curious. I have written about you, mystery reader (indirectly) so, to help clear up this mystery, please read the link Blog Mystery
