My motto: Question everything – learn something new every day!
Hi. My name is Ken Vickery. I'm now retired. Over the years I have been an electronic technician (USAF & Kennedy Space Center), teacher (secondary math and physical sciences), and pastor (United Methodist). I spend much of my time thinking about time: the past, present and future. Questioning everything, I wonder about civilization's true roots, how much misinformation we have been fed either because we don't know any better or don't want to give credence to other possibilites. I observe the present wondering about humanity's actions and reactions and question why we humans don't seem to mature. I look to the future with great hope seeing changes taking place among some of our youth and reading about the birth of a new higher order of humans which will create a new society and world outlook. At this time, I don't think most humans see beyond the physical nor realize we are eternal beings passing through this physical journey for a brief while.
I am married to a wonderful lady who accepts me as me while not agreeing with all my thoughts and choices. We live a simple life appreciating each other and each day and enjoying this gift of life. We sing in our church's choir -- she sings and I try. I teach Bible study twice a week encouraging my fellow students to look closely at the text, consider when it was written and by whom and put what we read into the historical context of their society, beliefs and hopes.
I'm a realist and yet an optimist. As an acute observer, I'm easily amused by people, including myself, and the little things in life.
