Allow me to introduce myself...
A Nom de Plume is otherwise known as a pen name.
For the past several years, I've written under the name
J D Evanston, AKA Jacques Daveon Evanston.
Depending on mood, need, or season,
I spend my nights under the stars near water in Florida, Costa Rica, Panama, South America, or South Africa.
Friends say life events have made me a good ex-Pirate;
I am now even more dedicated to defending the weak and unfortunate. Always I will rescue any damsel, or wench in distress. Mermaids are my particular specialty.
Not all Pirates are cold, some simply require freedom.
Admittedly, I am growing a bit long in the tooth.
However, my participation in life, searching for love, adventure, and helping those in need, is as young as ever.
I suppose that is the reason I so truly enjoy attempting to place into words the true experiences, realities, and emotions of life.
The positive results and effects of many unfortunate events have burned upon my soul a compassion that has
reformed my focus and intent of life.
I cannot dispute the direct intervention and clear participation of some higher power intentionally guarding my life for purpose, or purposes yet unknown. After being inexplicably rescued from death four distinct times by God,
Clearly I have much left to be done.
Therefore, every new day is another day in paradise, another day to be carefully aware of the often subtle signs leading me forward, as I also enthusiastically teach others to recognize
the spiritual signs and hints directing one's daily path.
The personal quote I am most known for-
I love everyone, just some more than others.
Follow my journey, or voyage, of adventures as I search
the world sharing not only peace, love, and understanding,
but utilizing science to provide clean drinking water,
searching for any means to end hunger, ways to stop
the spread of disease, and means to forever eliminate
both physical and emotional violence against women,
children, the helpless, the weak, and the infirm.
These formidable concerns are my primary focus. The life stories born of these truths pain my soul, but also nourish my pen to bring voice to the silent, and strength to the defenseless, as I enlighten the unfortunately ignorant world that personal greed should never exist as long as any child cries for food.
May the stories I scribe bring comfort and humor
to your mind, soul, and spirit; compassion to the unaware,
wisdom to the ignorant, and conviction to the selfish.
May the seeds of inequality I intentionally plant, weigh
upon the conscience of the wealthy, for these are capable
of providing the basic tenants of life itself;
filling countless empty stomachs of the desperate,
and eliminating the spread of disease and death from
the non-choice of drinking contaminated water.
Those possessing heart and bounty are obliged to share
with those less fortunate, for we are but the same,
save for birthright, education, or opportunity.
When I see another less fortunate, in need, or handicapped,
I am continually reminded of a quote
from John Bradford in 1542,
"But for the Grace of God, there go I."
