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 either mood, need, or season,
I spend my nights under the stars in or near water in Florida, Costa Rica, Panama, South America, or South Africa.
Some close to me say life events have made me an ex-Pirate; others say in ways, I am even more dedicated - to continually 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, at least in part, the reason I so truly enjoy attempting to place into words the true experiences,
realities, and emotions of real 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.
With all due logic and scrutiny, no one can dispute the direct intervention and clear participation of some higher power intentionally guarding my life for purpose, or purposes yet unknown. After facing death and being inexplicably rescued four distinct times by the great invisible force, I clearly see I have work left to be done.
Therefore, I view every new day as yet another day in paradise, another day to watch for the often subtle signs directing my path, as I teach others how to recognize these visual, and verbal 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, and 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 wealth should never exist as long as any child cries for food.
May the stories I scribe bring comfort and humor to your mind, body, 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 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."
Peace, love, and light,
Jacques Daveon Evanston
