About josephbc69

At 75, I'm active in my design/build residential improvement business. I sometimes write articles/essays for Internet publication and paper pubs, as well as poetry, which is where I'm most recognised. Google or cluuz 'joseph e fasciani' to get some idea of what I'm about, but HEY! God's not done w/me yet! At present I live in Esquimalt, 'the meeting places of whales' according to native tradition, near Victoria, BC, in a pleasant neighbourhood which is good for my business logistics. The greatest influence in my life was my pacifist anarchist father, who found God late in life. If you need a tag for me, "libertarian anarchist christian pacifist" will work, BUT: after I've turned the 2nd cheek, aye, there's the rub and quandary! I like meeting new people, especially if they share my interests, which are history, politics, philosophy, poetry, creative writing of all kinds, cooking good food, and the eating of it, along w/a good wine or two!
