About Me

Do you need to know who I am to appreciate this blog? Perhaps. Or perhaps not. Knowing who I am may encourage you to read my posts, or it may encourage you not to bother – but that will say more about you than it says about me! So, just in case it matters, I can tell you that I am a progressive, white, middle-class, middle-aged, pro-choice, married, lesbian, American, Episcopalian woman who has studied psychology, theology and liturgy. I work in a church as well as being a reverse mortgage counselor. I am well educated and fairly well-spoken. But, I’m neither pretentious enough nor arrogant enough to think that my words will change attitudes, much less lives. On the other hand, if my words or images can open a window to another way of looking at something or if they can provide comfort or joy, I know I will be blessed in return.

    Hey Pat, So I was thinking of setting up a wordpress blog, and found that the name I wanted to used was already taken by you. SO, you must be the “real” Pat Hawkins. If I’m correct, do you remember the “other” Pat Hawkins that used to work as Parish Administrator at St. James’ Episcopal Church in Hackettstown all those many years ago? If it’s you, and you remember me, then hello and good to know you’re doing well! I suppose I’ll have to use another name for my own blog then ….

      Hey Pat! Yes, I do remember the “other” Pat Hawkins. Hope you’re well and enjoying life. Sorry I took your name – for the blog that is, I think I had the other name first!
