Who am I? Always an interesting question, and one that we all ask ourselves more than once. We are who we are at different times, and with different people. On the one hand, I am the long time happily married man, father of three adult children, grandfather to five munchkins on their way into this wonder world of ours.
On the other hand I am professionally a Trainer, Educator, and Practitioner (TEP) of Psychodrama and Sociometry, and a writer of Poetry and philosophic musings in process and in progress.
On the other, other hand, (why stop at two, that's just a lazy conventional trick)
I am engaged in discovering how to put myself fully into this world of webbing, and want to bring to any and all readers the opportunity to utilize the learning of my life's experiences. My professional biography can be found at:
Now, on to the What
Here are three things we all know, but forget:
1. We are always in relationship
2. Like any good movie, the relationships are experienced as role relationships: teacher/student; wife/husband; cops and robbers.
3. There are rules that govern the relationships; expectations of interactive behavior that are cued and consistent. Teachers don't ask a student for help with the homework assignment.
As the director of an afternoon program for adolescents who had, among other issues, difficulty with rules, I would, from time to time, offer them a reward if they could describe a game without any rules. It didn't take them along to realize that such a thing, while possible to say, was not possible to do.
What we are going to do on this site, is examine together in a variety of ways the rules, roles, and relationships that give shape, substance and meaning to our lives. On the Writings Page I will offer short, easy to read and free downloadable writings designed to give more flesh and bones to some these ideas. There will also be links to a couple of my published books of poetry, and as time goes on, a series of short e-books, minimally priced, and focused on specific areas for personal growth and discovery. Look around and let me know what you think.
