About Me

My photo

Did Socrates say "Know Thyself", or was he misunderstood, as all are. Show Thyself is all we can do. The knowing is unknowable.  

I am filled with joy.  It can't be helped.  

Became a Farmer, Builder, Musician, Tank Commander, Librarian, Lawyer and Minister. I have failed at many things. And now retired.  Filled, just filled, with Joy.

Quote: Goethe - words have been exchanged, now take action!

Der Worte sind genug gewechselt,
lasst mich auch endlich Taten sehn!

  The words are exchanged,
now at last show me what you can do! (Goethe, Faust I)
