I am not a professional writer. I am a retired military man in my mid seventies. I write because I have many wonderful and meaningful life experiences. They are valuable to me and I treasure them. I want to remember them, record them, and share them. I hope they will be of value to others, and especially to my family. I do not write these posts in any particular order. I write them randomly as the thoughts and memories come to me, and as I gain new insights. (At times, I may move a timely or more relevant thought to the top of this list.) These are mostly my thoughts, many of which are very personal. I write and shared them sincerely from my heart. In addition, I have included many favorite quotes from great thinkers. These are insights I believe and cherish. I write from the perspective of a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I consider myself a disciple of Jesus Christ.
