Make a Joyful Noise

JohnWillett(mini)Recently I attended the funeral of yet another vibrant person taken from us far before their time. As always happens when I attend such a funeral and listen to others speak of the virtues of the deceased, I can’t help but reflect on my own self-worth. I wonder if I am doing enough to make a difference in this world? Am I using my god-given talents to their full potential? Or am I wasting them? It’s all very existential.

This posting is the first I’ve written that falls into the category of Ramblings. It is just my own thoughts put out there for your consideration. If you disagree with me, that’s okay; the beauty of this world is our diversity of thought and action. But if you agree with my views, then I can take heart in knowing that there’s a movement out there trying to make a positive difference, however small, in our screwed-up world.

See Make a Joyful Noise in the Ramblings section of this blog.

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
