Hello. I am John Louis Thomas. Single (no ex, no kids, no pets, no job…retired). I’m in good health, Christian, US Army vet, and graduate of University of Southern California. I have been a member in good standing of a local church for the past twenty five years.
At age twenty-five, I began writing as a way to analyze thought processes. It struck me at that time that I had wasted essentially a lifetime on fluff and frivolity. I’d better get serious about life if I wanted the best for myself. How should I do that? Start all over. Reprogram my identity. Try to get to the core of who I was, what I was, and why – then rebuild. Writing about much of this was very important and continues to be part of my life.
Today, I find myself willing to share specific aspects of more recent writings. In the past, there was a hesitation to share personal thoughts on issues of controversy – especially in print. However, I feel a stronger sense of taking the initiative to attempt a positive contribution to society. I’m aware that my attempt may not be well received – even by the people I most love and respect - my church, my friends, my family.
