"I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an anti-theist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful." - Christopher Hitchens in Letters to a Young Contrarian.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." - Sinclair Lewis

“Religion has ever been anti-human, anti-women, anti-life, anti-peace, anti-reason, and anti- science. The god idea has been detrimental not only to humankind, but to the earth. It is time now for reason, education, and science to take over.” - Madalyn Murray O'Hair


Painter, writer, photographer, dog wrangler, dog rescuer, devourer of books and film and knowledge, gardener, hesitant and mediocre self-taught chef, and avid traveler. People say I should have been a librarian or archivist of some sort. I think I should have been a paleontologist.

Recently divorced after thirteen years. Figuring out the life that follows. Looking for peace. After five years in New York City and twenty more years in other cities, I relocated to rural New England. I like the quiet. I like the forest. I like snow in the winter. I like buying fresh, local goat's milk cheese at the general store.

I have always had rescue dogs and you can see two of them throughout these pages. I eat Indian food every chance I get, but never say no to Chinese. Two of my favorite living musicians are Tom Waits and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. Some of my favorite authors are Samuel Beckett, Gene Wolfe, and William Heinesen. Some of my favorite films are Henry Fool, Hannah and Her Sisters, My Dinner with André, Stalker, Trust, and Through a Glass Darkly.

This is chapter four.
