A case for the expansion of the (Personal) Universe- as seen
by The Old Man Down the Street.
WHO? and WHY?
OK -- first of all - Who the
heck is "The Old Man Down the Street"? That's what my son
started calling me one day. I kinda like it. It's not disrespectful
because it's accurate (and don't let the picture mislead you - I'm
really a nice guy...)
Anymore personal info would be superfluous. Even though this site is
from a personal point of view - that's not what it's really about...
A case for the expansion of the (Personal) Universe - We all live in our own
We can choose to be narrow-minded and live
in the caves of our minds and see the world through "tunnel vision"
- becoming obssessed with our "differences" from others - refusing
to see our more important commonalities.
Eventually we would just withdraw further and further into the
blackness, eventually smothered by the darkness that would surround
our hearts and minds - leaving us alone and bitter.
We can - under an infinite sky - share in the wonders and mysteries of the
gift of the universe we all live in.
If we strive to expand our personal universes - and at least
offer to help others in their quest to expand theirs... we just might
make a positive difference in at least one person's life - and
that's not a small thing!
My father always told me that
"The only thing you have in your life of any real value is what you
give of yourself to others."
In that spirit of sharing, this site will include links to web sites that have
led me down further paths of discovery.

...by the way - my son created this site for
me... Aye, 'e's a good lad!
