I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist, a lawyer of 25 years, and a graduate level certified clinical researcher. I have bee married for almost 40 years (meeting my wife at age 13) and have 2 grown children, Brooke 30 and Drew 27. I have great interest in the arts and in cosmology, in addition to my professional interests. I paint, sing, sculpt. I have survived leukemia and a bone marrow transplant. This has resulted in my productiom of my only sibling's blood (5 year younger sister.) I am highly spiritual and have abandoned what I concede to be useful but limiting mythologies of most religious orthodoxy. Since Carl Sagan and I were next-door roomates during our bone marrow transplants, I was that much more contemplative of his universe. However, Carl was misguided in his atheism since neither he,nor others of his ilk, can identify a First Cause/Prime Mover. Until then, the issue remains open and such absolutism is as arrogant as the thelogian "knowers."
