Father of three wonderful daughters, husband to a lovely and delightful wife, theologian by profession who dabbles in poetry and art from time to time, Allen loves words and the way they lead him into places alien and astounding. Allen is also especially interested in the wonderment of space and silence. Sailing occupies his summer and curling his winter spare time. That, and reading novels, poetry, theology and theology. As of late, he finds himself drawn to lessons to be learned from Canada’s First Nations. Life really is an adventure.
