About Me and this Journey

About me

My name is Bill. I am a writer, retired from my real jobs as a career USAF officer, later a DoD contractor, and finally a QA aviation training Civil Service guy imbedded with active duty professionals from the Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy, and members from a dozen partner allied countries. I live in Texas because I married one.

I didn’t know I wanted to be a writer, much less write poetry, memoir, and non-fiction but I am, and I do. This is my WordPress site to wave my poetry and prose around.

I am also a recovering cradle Catholic, a Texas Aggie (non-reg, class of ’71), and I managed to convince Chapman University to give me a master’s degree when the school was still a college. English is my first and only language, but I matriculated only enough of those classes to meet requirements.

Sociology and Educations were my majors. I drink red wine, dark beer, and I love pizza.

About Our Literary Journey

I post some prose and some poetry by going with whatever twaddle spews from the old flapdoodle’s noggin.

Heartfelt thanks to all readers. You have encouraged and supported me on my romantic tryst with writing and blogging. I’ve learned much.

I feel indebted to all writers everywhere, living and dead, who have made this world a better place, using only words.

Until our last words are written, thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.

And yet, please continue to….

Look both ways and mind the gaps.

  1. I like your marriage advice. It has worked for us, too (I’ve been part of one for almost 40 years, so I’m a little behind you) 🙂
    I’ve just discovered your blog and have read a couple of entries. Liked ’em both; looking forward to more.

  2. “Look both ways and mind the gaps.”

    I’m glad I checked a few poetic pieces of yours from the wp reader. Your words tug at emotions, some are even thought-provoking.

    Looking forward to your future posts!
