My heart will be my compass
And you will be my North
— Secret Garden - The Dream


"“When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive:

Love that conquers hate, 

peace that rises triumphant over war, and 

justice that proves more powerful than greed.”

-- Fred Rogers


About - me:  

You know that little thing inside your head, 
that keeps you from saying things you shouldn’t?
Yeah, I don't have one of those.

Growing up in my father's machine shop near Atlanta, I began by studying physics. Then I went on to study computing, thinking and religion. I became a scientist [physics, computing & astronomy] and also Episcopal priest.  At home, I was married with two children.

As I grew up in Georgia, deeply embedded in racism, greed and militarism, I was drawn to the beauty of the Episcopal Church. Based on what they said, I expected response to our human situation. But, when I spoke out during the Vietnam War and civil rights struggles, they threw me, my wife and babies out in the street. 

So, I didn’t set out to be a meddlesome priest. It just came out that way. Like the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, this proved to be more liberation than rejection - escape from religion.

Now I live in New Mexico, a land of big spaces and high places. There I find myself going for walks and talks with the “Old One,” as Einstein said.
