I'm an old mystic in young skin.I have no answers.I welcome the new.

I like writing mostly about spirituality, comparative religion, mysticism. Essentially, this is my favorite. Outside of hubpages, I teach meditation classes.

My other favorite topic is the meaning of song lyrics. My favorite songwriter is Leonard Cohen, and I think each of his songs deserves a long, discussion, though his faithful fans often prefer to remain simply silent in the presence of his voice. These two topics go together. Cohen, as well as my other favorite, Bruce Springsteen, have deep spiritual, psychological, and existential meanings in their songs. The Boss, usually listened to more for the music, actually has some profound, highly intelligent lyrical skills, mostly because of their sheer sincerity.

I've travelled the world and speak other languages. I've had a very full existence so far and I'm still young.

I'm excited about hubpages and about being part of the community here.

I created and I run an online magazine called "The Death Cross Monk." I am especially interested in publishing people, especially hubpages writers, in the genres of poetry, visual art, and music. The site is at www.thedeathcrossmonk.com
