Eric English Typewriter break

Greetings and welcome to the blog of Eric English! This blog is my little place on the internet where all of my diverse personalities come together. When I started this blog in 2011, I could not have imagined that I would still be writing 10 years later. Nor could I have imagined the journey some of these writings would take. Writings on theology, religion, culture, philosophy, poetry, have transversed the world and returned introducing me to individuals I would not have otherwise met. As this new decade begins I look forward to sharing my thoughts and insights for another 10 years.

Please Note
