Introduction – Travels from Ur

Welcome to my eclectic web pages on family, faith, recollections and aspirations. In this jumble of ideas, I invite family and friends to add their thoughts, recollections, ideas and other insights. Just go to the chapters or sub chapters listed above that you may be interested in.

The semi regular blog is at

Explaining the title …

It is very presumptuous to compare oneself with the patriarch Abram/Abraham, but in a very real sense we are all on a journey of faith. We all believe in something – even if it is in ourselves or the non existence of God.  For me, the presence of the Christian God has been a reality from before I was born. However, that does not in itself make the journey of life easier. In fact, it creates challenges, traumas and conflicts – oftentimes with no one else but yourself. This blog  reflects on this journey: physical, spiritual,and emotional.

I will add pieces and edit chapters over time.

In Christ
