I would lose myself in spinship economics, but for my plan to write fiction with Cle' Curbo, who won 1st Place in Sci-Fi in 2021 for "In the Garden of Mistress Bloom" (Writers Digest self-published e-book category). The human race must mature to care for our mother earth, and wean ourselves to space for her sake. I love to experiment with my garden of earthly delightful plants. I strive to love all the people all the time, but I am not powerful enough to do so. End right side amygdala. Space alien! is like shouting "squirrel" to a dog.

Love comes later. View all posts by L Paul Turner
