General Information

After great delay I am now available on Facebook using my meatspace name, and also available via blog at DGT Fiction. Since I aspire to be a writer, I figured it was a good idea to write -- even if that means you don't see me at the monastery much any more. And so it goes.

Quotable Quotes (from others)

Bigger is better if smaller is "broken".

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
  Robert. A. Heinlein
We can do no great deeds-only small deeds with great love.
  Mother Theresa
