    I’m not really a creative;
    that is a truly special breed
    of all those to whom it’s native
    to meet the world’s heartfelt need.
    I just write for fun and profit,
    storylines are easy to choose.
    It sounds plebeian, but don’t knock it
    for I have a laid-back muse.
    There is a basic human story,
    with variations on the theme
    of living in Love and giving glory
    to the God that fuels the dream.
    No Great American Novel here;
    I don’t write champagne, just generic beer.

      These are not blog posts. They are show notes for the podcast, or an outline of the content. If you want the details it is very easy to listen.

      To provide a transcript of each show would be a considerable expense.

      Sorry for the dissapointment. There is plenty of other information on the site, over 1,000 posts that may be of help.

        Rats, our internet can’t handle podcasts. We live way out in the woods and have a patchy connection at best.

          I have some good news for you. Podcasts actually are the best multimedia format for bad internet. The key is to use a free app on your phone like Castbox. It will download the podcast in the background and then you can play it without needing to be connected to the internet at all. A lot of people like to listen to podcasts on airplanes for this reason.
