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 300+ 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, 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!
