There are many topics and issues which hold my attention. I write about the ones that have a special meaning or interest for me. Some of my favorite subjects involve personal improvement, home repair projects, acoustic guitar music, original songwriting, politics, and history.

While researching a particular item for an article I often find that there is a more interesting story hidden in the details of my original idea. This is when I am especially inspired to write...when I find that golden needle in the proverbial haystack.

Texas' history and contemporary politics are intriguing. My family has a personal connection to a couple of famous Texas historical figures. I also  find songwriting to be especially attractive. The challenging thing about writing a song is how to convey a deep subject in a short time frame, all the while working with cadence and rhyme. Fascinating.

In the past I've had articles published in newspapers. One was a stint as a columnist which helped me learn how to write regularly because of the deadlines. Can you guess what the subject was in this article? "Deadbolts, Slugs and Ettiquette".

Hubpages holds a special place in my life. A place where I can escape from the everyday humdrum. A place where I can create, explore, discover, dream and wonder, all the while, helping to make life a little more interesting.
