Twain Hearts

This is a recent picture (taken in March of 2017) of me and my lovely wife on the dance floor, and in honor of God making the most perfect match for me, I have written a new sonnet titled “Twain Hearts.”
So here’s to God, “the best maker of all marriages . . .” Guys, God has never created “a perfect woman,” but never doubt that He can create the perfect woman for you. I hope you enjoy “Twain Hearts.”

Gunner Lindsey served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War and came home to work for the Salt Lake City PD while taking college courses (and serving in the National Guard in intelligence gathering ops). He graduated from the University of Utah with a PhD in Sociology, specializing in Criminal Justice and Religion. He taught at Cal State San Bernardino for 20 years. Strong work, Dad!

I dedicate the following haiku to Sergeant Donald B. Lindsey Sr. I salute you: Thank you for serving!  Continue reading

Stardust

Think of it: a star 100 times larger than our sun, and scientists watched it before, during, and after its explosion! SN 1987a has been the most fantastic cosmic phenomena (in terms of supernovas exploding) in 400 years!  What will God think of next?
