Hello, I just arrived

Post by pilgrim1917 » Sun Mar 08, 2020 8:20 am

Greetings!

I'm a bit of an oddball, yet I feel very much at home here. I am not an atheist but have friends who are, good friends, in fact. Indeed, I now believe in a supreme being, though I didn't always. I began reading philosophy when I was 20, with The Myth of Sisyphus by Camus, The Will to Power by Nietzsche, followed by philosophical literature, works by Dostoevsky and others.

My degrees are in psychology, teacher education and journalism. I'm retired. I write poetry, fiction, essays and I journal.

I look forward to some good discussions in these forums.

Thank you.

Thank you all for the welcome, or welcomes, whichever is the proper phrasing. It's great to be in this company of thinkers. I'm headed to the discussion about Ricky Gervais, because I've been a fan of his since "The Office," the original British version. Apparently he said some controversial things at the Golden Globe Awards.

Hey there. Pilgrim brings to mind 1620 and the Mayflower, John Wayne, Eric Clapton. I heard recently that an epidemic more than decimated Indian tribes along coastal North America before 1620. Something to check out one of these days.
