Words


Sometimes I write, because I'm frustrated, or because something tickles me, or just for the hell of it.

One thing that frustrates me these days (the Spring of 2004) is the folks who think that same-sex marriage constitutes some sort of threat to the institution. Here's a dialog on marriage written for those folk's benefit.

If Restaurants Were Like Airlines, Part Un et Part Deux,

If Flight Attendants Told the Truth, and,

not to ignore train travel, If Amtrak Was a Snack Bar.

In a more serious vein, I've occupied the pulpit of the Community Unitarian Universalist Church of San Antonio on more than one occasion, and some of what I have to say is available in their sermon archive.

In the Spring of 2005, a group of us formed a Toastmasters club at church. Early on, we decided that the best way to get to be a club was to join an existing club. As it turned out, an existing club, Northwest Toastmasters of San Antonio, was looking for a home, and our church fit the bill. I'm now a member of Northwest Toastmasters. My speeches are posted here.
