I use C L Couch when writing formally because it is a version of my name that's genderless. And, frankly, easier for handwriting--I have a severe writer's cramp. In conversation, I go by Christopher, having been named for the boy who had the poly bear and finally being (achieving) fine with that.
I use small Xes all the time because WordPress won't let me cut and paste the text from my program page to this one. (Grrrrrr.)
I am a career educator, semi-retired due to disability. I live in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (USA).
The main photographs at this site (of the road, of me) were crafted by photographer and my friend Debra Danielson. A variety of her work is available for appreciation at
Thank you, lookers, hearers.--Christopher

Sounds like you had a tough day when you wrote this. In my own way, I can relate. I pray you have many more good days then bad ones.

You’re right. I wrote this early in the morning after waking up feeling really sick and wondering how pointless is everything. The day picked up, I think. But I do go through these times. Thanks, Mandi, for your encouragement. Thanks for your prayer!
