A Century of Thoughts: Public Journal
This journal will look at the philosophy introduced to Americans by a 1912 visitor to the U.S.

All About Me
I am a former biologist, one who has now become a freelance writer. I do a good deal of writing about science and health issues. I also like to write material directed at children and youth. I wrote a short poem in 2001, and then I read about a writer who had turned a simple magazine article into a book. I thought I would try expanding on the story in my short poem. The result is the story "An American Candy Pleases Persian in New York City." That story will appear in an anthology. Information on that anthology can be found in my blog.

Before His Visit to New York City
He exclaimed: "Here is a black rose!" Everyone present was impressed with a feeling of wonder, which increased when 'Abdu'l-Bahá, distributing a handful of chocolates to each child with a kind word, picked up a particularly dark chocolate and without a word, but with a humorously piercing glance that swept the group, laid the chocolate against the black cheek. 'Abdu'l- Bahá's face was radiant… and that radiance seems to fill the room.
