YOU WOKE UP BREATHING……….
Fiction or non-fiction? It’s all fair game for me. To write or to read.
I see now that I’ve been chasing something. I’ve looked for a place where meaning sits beside me as I draw slow on a cup of coffee. Decaf, thank you. It’s weird, but, in this place, I find logic coming and going, never taking residence.
I’m captivated with all things Christian and scientific. And rising over it all, like little fluffy clouds, is the Good Life of relationships, meaningful work, exercise, and mindful attention. I ignore the most urgent advice of writing: focus like a laser on one thing. But there are just too many things rattling around in my head and I’ve got to get them out. I hope you’ll like them as much as I do.
I write a lot about Christian issues, too. I’ve been a Christian most of my life and have a new view after being hit by a car while training for a bicycle race. Life support and a five-week coma can do that to you.
When the pop-up appears, if you’ll put your email address there where it asks, you’ll get notified of new writing, new stories, and maybe a newsletter or gift offer. I’ve mostly given up on publishing. It’s too much work and I don’t have the time. Same with the socials. At least for now. So, I publish everything here or send it out to my readers. I just want to write.

Except for my Evolution Explained site, everything else gets published here on You Woke Up Breathing, I post pieces on Medium too, and Wattpad. If you prefer those venues, follow the hyperlinks and check them out. And if you would like me to publish on another site, just let me know. I’ll check it out. Thanks,
Here’s a piece that is partly true and mostly made up. The idea came to me years ago when I was looking for a house in a Southern town. I didn’t but it, but later, the former owner came to me to tell me that for as long as she lived there, a ghost lived with them.
I write a lot memoir about myself, my dad, and what is both weird and universal about being a human and a Mitton. I change this out often so keep coming back.
Where I write and think a lot about all things Christian and religious. Hit the button – ‘mash’ the button they say here on South Carolina – to go to the top of the Christian menu. And please, let me know what you think.

I would love for you to support me and my work. You can do so at any time by giving through Paypal under the photo above. There are other groups that I admire, too. Mercy Ships docks it’s floating hospital in posts all over the world and performs necessary surgeries and training. And who doesn’t know of St. Jude? Cutting edge medicine at no cost to the family. Isn’t that the goal we all seek? I can’t happen in a vacuum. And I can attest to the expertise and caring of Atlanta’s Shepherd Center, one of the top brain injury centers of the world. I have a soft spot for the last one. It’s for my daughter and her family working with Ethnos360. They are stateside now, waiting out COVID, but are missionaries in the Philippines, learning indigenous languages for BIble translations.
All these groups are worthy of your support, your good thoughts, and your prayers.
