In My Own Words:
Dan E. Nicholas In the work world I'm found online at DanNicholasCLU and hail as a long term care solutions specialist and serve Santa Cruz, Monterey, Santa Clara, and San Benito Counties since 1986. But in the wee hours I'm here, a book reader, philosopher, theologian, writer, and then at sunup a husband, father, brother, son, friend and lover.

For decades now, my idea of a good time continues to be rising a few hours early and reading. Reading the thoughts of those near and far on similar interests. What continues to fascinate me is union and communion with God and man starting with my own soul and my own family. Getting and living connected. I read near books. Books by monks and Eastern Orthodox theologians. Near words by poets held near and dear to me. About getting close; what it means to live there and not burn up. Thinkers throughout church history, East and West. Science; sociology, psychology; books by and about people who work closely with people living closely with others in their bodies not just their heads or souls. Union and communion with self and God and others--lovers, spouses, friends. Close vs. long distance. Near vs. far. Mostly relationship stuff; sex and God stuff. So yes, what does it mean to be a Near Person vs. a far person? These are the thoughts that continue to captivate me. And, of course I'm writing and working on my memoir. Aren't you? Mine: Sex With Librarians and God. The concepts and thoughts I've run into within the 160+ books I've reviewed here have held my interest for the last 15 years or more. Hope you enjoy my reviews. What I read is all over the board but you'll see a connecting thread; a self and God thread. A thread that addresses the body, the sacred and the profane. A red, passionate thread. Now, go get a book. And, read!
