Such a wonderful gift the world has given us… the power of imagination. We can make anything up in our minds. Create anything at all. Re-arrange elements, add or subtract…
It is said we spend about 30% of the time daydreaming. It is said we fall asleep imagining perfect scenarios…some times we sleep with them inside our heads too.

Dappled light danced across Vivian’s face, a hypnotic electric blue. She’d traveled long and far to get here, to the ends of the Earth and back. So much pain. So much loss. Time had passed her by as she wandered the darker passages of the world, until everyone and everything she’d ever known was dead.
“If our ideas about creation are confused, we are lost.”
Human civilization is synonimous with trying to understand how this world began. We’ve been trying to explain how this Universe came to be ever since. Why?
Well, you should read David Shaw‘s short book on the subject.
Because in order to know who you are, where you are going, you need to know where you came from.
The past defines the present and influences the future, whether we like to admit it or not.
David Shaw lives in Silver Spring Maryland with his wife Loydell Jones. David studied philosophy and theology at Thomas Aquinas Institute in River Forest, Illinois and Dubuque, Iowa from 1957 to 1964. He earned an M.A in sociology at the University of Chicago in 1967. He was employed at the Bureau of the Census from 1968 to 1999. He served as president of American Federation of Government Employees, Local 2782 for three terms between 1970 and 1977. David published The Mount Vernon-Lee Vantage monthly newspaper in Fairfax County, Virginia from 1988 to 1999. He was a leader in creating the Mount Vernon Community Assembly in 1991 and the Franconia Community Assembly in 1997. He studied oil painting at Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland from 2006 until 2008. He served on the executive committee of the Montgomery County Civic Federation in 2010-2011. He convened and serves as president of the Glenmont Exchange, Inc., 2012-.
Creation has been David’s central religious concern since his late teens. He was concerned that creation was taught as a past event that left no role for humans. He remembers the jolt he experienced when he learned about the ancient Hebrew cosmos. He also remembers the excitement he experienced upon finding Isaac Asimov’s step by step account of the opening of the solid sky. David can be reached by email at DxShaw@Gmail.com
