About the author

Retired (in a way) from a number of pursuits.  A beginner of many others.

I love to read and write; sing and play guitar.  I like photography and all beauty in life.     I prefer fantasy and its prospects to contemporary ramblings.

I love family.  I love people.  I believe in God.

I believe in sharing and the  probabilities of a united world.  I also believe that, at this time,  this line of thinking is a ‘dreamscape. ‘

I believe in peace as the world believes in war…. and know neither concept, alone.

My true wish would be that no mother or father – anywhere –  would have to lose their children during their lifetime.

I am, unfortunately, a realist.  (why I prefer fantasy ramblings)

I care that you have dropped by and welcome your comments.  My mother would have thanked you.

I thank you.

If you like, you can email me at    thomag1@yahoo.com     It will be my privilege to hear from you.

My best to you all –

tom (t. j. gargano)
