My name is Bill Sheehan. I live on Cape Cod, a sixty mile stretch of sand and glacial moraine extending into the Atlantic from Massachusetts. If you were standing in front of me, I would cock my fist like John L. Sullivan and point to the crook of the elbow, inviting you to imagine a spot halfway between the Canal and Provincetown, on the sheltered northern side just before you can’t go any further east and start heading north.
I refer to my spouse as the Unindicted Co-Conspirator. It is our belief that a happy marriage is not so much a partnership as a conspiracy. We met about 25 years ago on a local BBS, a couple of members of which are still around here on LiveJournal.
We were DINKs (dual income, no kids) who were fortunate in our employment in technical fields. Recently, we determined that, while we probably had enough money to fund a modest retirement, we were quickly running out of life. We found a place near a bike path with a pool and exercise room, and are working on recovering from decades of sedentary professions.
For the first four years or so, I posted daily on subjects of interest to me. These included history, politics, and religion. I’m fascinated by religion’s history and power, but do not believe in its object. Nowadays, I promise myself I'll get back to regular writing in addition to a weekly Sunday Sermonette.
So that, in a nutshell, is me. Pleased to meet you.
