*** I prefer writing to talking. No one interrupts!! ***

I write what interests me and that is mostly chess. I have lots of other interests including Catholic spirituality psychology, philosophy, addiction and recovery, creativity, technology and books.

Having a vision-impairment coupled with a rebellious attitude toward images, I don't want to waste time with them and copyright issues are a royal pain! I outgrew the need for pictures in my reading material by the time I completed second grade.

I speak my mind and share my heart with no claim to knowing ANYTHING that can be proven. I don't present FACTS, only OPINIONS. Whether you agree or not, I truly appreciate your reading time.
