now, for seven things about myself…

1: I live in Heaven where the weather is hell, Texas. I live on a river that inspires me to write much of my zen poetry and writes.

2: I am married to a wonderful woman and have a daughter (8) these are the treasures in my life that make me a wealthy man.

3: I am a 3rd degree black belt, in Tae Kwon Do. I feel this is one of my greatest achievements but foremost my inspiration to become a master of zen, life and myself.

4: I am employed as a Correctional Officer (prison guard) I am challenged daily, mentally and or physically. I love my job, I try to be an inspiration to my co-workers and to those inmates that may one day be walking among us in the free world. Our mission is to reintegrate these individuals into society. A task that is not easy but necessary.

5: I was born in Japan, however I am American, my father was in the service and we traveled a great deal till I was about 9. We lived a great deal of this time in Central America. The first thing I noticed when we came to the states was how rich Americans were because there was paved streets and wooden doors rather than sheets and blankets.

6: At one time I was a truck driver and I have been to nearly every state in the united states except for Alaska and Hawaii. I feel this enhanced my life greatly to be able to see the world, so to speak, in its highs and lows.

7: I love writing, it is my addiction. I suppose we all have a vice, I some how have made mine, zen. I want to be as enlightened as one can be in order to pass this wisdom on to my family and the world. I have seen so much wrong with people, who simply couldn’t find a way to climb out of their ruts, depression and or twisted lives. I can only hope to have a story that might help one unravel their turmoil. I had a best friend (years ago) who eventually ended his life due to a deep unhappiness. I am not a doctor but if I could give one person a outlet from personal unhappiness,then I have done a great deed.

There were many more I could have listed here as versatile bloggers, many I see have already received this award. I think that the sharing of this award and our lives is its greatest asset. Thank you for reading my words and I hope to read as much of your as possible, because I hunt for wisdom, wit, enlightenment and zen every single time I turn on the computer because zen is addictive… bows (~_~) humble,
