Who I Am and Why I’m Here

I’ve recently retired from a long succession of careers, including Probation and Parole Officer, Custom Furniture Maker, Main Street Manager, Art Festival Organizer, Info Technology Coordinator, Web Master, and Consultant in Technology and The Arts.

Sounds like Multiple Personality Disorder, but it’s been fun. Really.

I love to share my philosophy and beliefs with like-minded individuals – and sometimes with those who would consider me insane.

I believe in these Guiding Principles:

  • “You never know what you’re going to learn.” – Wendell Berry
  • “Everything happens for a reason I make up.” – Andrew Boyd (AKA Brother Void)
  • “If you’re going to tell people the truth, you’d better make them laugh or they’ll kill you.” – Oscar Wilde

I believe that “we are all one”. I believe there is no such thing as “supernatural”, only “natural”. Just because we don’t understand it (yet) doesn’t make it outside the realm of nature. And I believe I’m always telling the truth, but not often the whole truth. My purpose, in life and in blog, is to connect.

One Eccentric Contemplative – what’s the blog about?

One – Among countless others, possibly yourself, or some parts of yourself.

Eccentric – Off Center – Permanently, Irrevocably, and hopefully, with Increasing Joy

Contemplative – Expressing or Involving prolonged thought, and hopefully discovering this is not an either-or proposition.

Primary Blog Topic – What I’m learning, and learning and learning….I’m figuring out that I don’t know what I think I know…

See y’all,

Marcel LaRose

PS – I close my posts this way because I believe that I do see you. You are welcome to sit on this bench with me.

I loved finding this 'skewed' bench in the woods at Furnace Mountain, a Zen retreat center. It reminds me we all have our own leanings.
