About the Blog Title Photo – Point Lobos near Carmel, California with Pebble Beach in background.
I am a trial lawyer in Arizona. Today, I am in my 68th year, so time is of the essence. I am married to Susan and we have a 26 year old son, Wyatt. I have been a Christian since 1971 when I first believed while reading the Bible in a cottage in Woodmont, Connecticut. I like to read and write and watch politics, news and sports on TV. I sing, play guitar and keyboards/piano.
My spiritual memoir, My Faith-Based Life and the Language of Heaven is here:

Here is a music video I made on Christmas day, 2012. It is a slide show of my two families, the family of my youth growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, and the family of my adulthood in Arizona. I recorded “Goin’ Back,” a Carol King song, in 2002 in a Scottsdale recording studio, singing the vocals and overdubbed harmonies, and playing my 1969 Gibson J-50 acoustic, and overdubbing my vocals.
Here is a music video I made a in March 2012 using Windows Movie Maker, a simple work. I wrote the song, “Summer Girls” in 1988. I was trying to write a Motown-like ballad. I did not finish the song, but the song and the recording came out alright. I played all the instruments and sang all the vocals overdubbing with a 4-Track Portostudio in my bedroom in Carmel, California in 1988.

Self-control is easier with serious health control, though never easy. Click here for a essay on self-control I posted after the diagnosis]:
