I am a Psychologist, and student of archetypes and a professed Franciscan in the Third Order of the Society of St Francis. My fascinations include the mathematical imagination, amateur astronomy, sacred texts from around the world, and the so-called "dead" ( but beautiful) languages - Aramaic, ancient Greek, Latin, and Sanskrit; a mere beginner in each case to be sure.
I am moved by great poetry, sometimes a humble author of poetry, a collector and author of creative liturgies, a singer, lover of opera, poor but devoted piano player and fledgling guitarist, and one devoted to long, rich dialogues over coffee, tea and munchies.
I am always hopeful of meeting others who see the universe in a flower and God in a smile. I do hope you will share your experiences on spiritual practice.
