About Me

I am John and second.

I am sharing my experiences as a husband to Daniel, father to Josh, Barrett, and Adler, a bestie, brother, son, leader, professor, writer, photographer, and cook.

My intention is to share my journey blessed by the grace of God through his unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Jesus, and my Family.

My temenos circle can be a place to be still and reflect. It can become my place to meditate and pray. A quiet circle connecting my mind, body, and spirit for inner peace and personal well-being. It can be a place filled with the people in my life I love the most, Daniel, my sons, my family, or friends that become my family. It is a place to laugh, enjoy fun, break bread and connect.

What is your temenos circle?

  1. Hello from Türkiye… just wanted to say “thank you”, I appreciate your recent ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day-to-day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my collection. There are plenty of categories within the drop-down menus to help in said digging process.

    Hope you have a great day…
