What Kind Of Atheist Are You?
You are one of life’s enjoyers, determined to get the most you can out of your brief spell on Earth. What first attracted you to atheism was the prospect of liberation from the Ten Commandments, few of which are compatible with a life of pleasure.
You can see the point of abstract principles, and might sacrifice for a concept, although it would need to be better than sex. You really would lay down your life for a friend. A champagne humanist, you admire George Bernard Shaw for his cheerful agnosticism and pursuit of sensual rewards.
Sometimes you might be tempted to allow your own pleasures to take precedence over your ethics, but you know everyone is striving for that elusive balance between the good and the happy life.
Open another bottle and go forward !
What Type of Poet Are You?

City ... London
You belong in London, but you belong in many cities... Hong Kong, Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo, Rome, Sidney. You fit in almost anywhere. London is diverse and international enough to satisfy your tastes. From curry to Shakespeare, London has it all!

Enjo-Kosai children (Tokyo) There are heavy sinful nights on Tokyo’s flashy streets what Gaijin call the true Bladerunner dark where wheezing suits of Yakuza suck ramen noodles hotly over gritty golden teeth where a million black umbrellas hide a thousand … Continue reading
Walking Past the Park at the VA Hospital Bits of color flash in the palm, fingers tighten, loosen twist and twitch in nervous candor Something in brown and tremulous hands held airily or softly or in fear of breakage Hands … Continue reading

A Poem In The Modern Style Hemingway’s passage about men drinking together on the eve of battle during The Spanish Civil War describes two men comparing pistols the length of the barrels the size of the bullets. This is always … Continue reading
