Reflections of a Retired Priest – Philippines

A few weeks back, a friend of mine, Thomas Martin wrote 2 articles for my site. His thoughts and insights are open, honest and interesting.

Well, as you now will find out, Tom is a retired Catholic Priest from Texas. For his own reasons Tom moved a few years ago to the Philippines. From the first moment I met him, I felt a comfortable and trusting friendship.

I do not know if it was because of my site or just the need to have a blog of his own, Tom has started his own blog Reflections of a Retired Priest – Philippines.

I hope you will visit and enjoy his thoughts, reflections, and observations.

    Thanks for the remark on my site. I have always written for therapy. I never thought that my writings were worth others reading. I got interested in blogging from your site. I was glad that you chose to put some of my writings on your site. I began to realize that my writings are far longer than your writings and really too long for a blog and that the subject matter I write on is not really on living in Davao. I did not want to impose on our friendship so decided to get you to help me with the blog of my own.

    It might be therapy for you but enjoyable readings and insights from a learned man. Also interesting reading is never too long. Mine are short since I can only babble for so long before my brain stops working.
    I am glad you started your blog, but miss that you will contribute to mine.
    I( do think we need a site meter and a few other items to get your blog noticed and to see how many visitors you are getting.

    Hi Bruce
    I’ve just been browsing in WO as I can never remember what I’ve said or who I’ve been talking too, and thus I came back to your site again Bruce.
    I am interested in what you say about moving your blog. I have for some time had one on my web site to keep friends up to date with what I’ve been doing, but it’s not a proper interactive one.
    Recently I have been wondering if I can incorporate a proper one into my site but don’t know how.

      I am not a programmer but it was not as hard as I thought. I did have 2 friends to ask for advice. I do recommend HostGator as a hosting service. Their assistence and help was wonderful. If you need advice, help, steps to setup your site or anything, just email me at
      Pass me to your friends, I love visitors that comment and develope a online friendship.
