"You know who you are inside, but people outside see something different. You can choose to become the image, and let go of who you are, or continue as you are and feel phony when you play the image."
-Richard Bach
The Bridge Across Forever

"The soul takes nothing with her to the next world but her education and her culture."
The Republic Quotes

First let me say that as of October, 2007, I moved into a new chapter of my life: this time as the Central Florida Service Unit Director for the United Faculty of Florida. Two years later, I moved to Cocoa Beach, Florida and have spent little time on this Web site: a situation I intend to remedy someday soon.

In the past, I have worn many hats...
