Check out my new blog "Cogito Ergo Some". It is a traditional blog, not essays, but a poet/writer running at the mouth on an assortment of topics.

But please continue look for stories on religion on Indie Theology; education on Bored-o-Ed and poetry on Fresh Poetry!  I plan to do lots of cross-posting, and I continue to republish many of my essays on Huffington Post.

Please "like" my Facebook page and follow me on twitter (@nypoet) to receive updates on new poems and essays.
