Dude o' the day
Roger Williams was a Puritan minister, theologian and all around swell guy who thought of himself foremost as a “seeker”. He believed that church and state should forever be separate and apart. Especially with regard to state-mandated religious preference. A potential problem in a newly forming colony where everyone is the same religion. He also believed that the discovery of truth is a personal quest, Roger was a pain in the ass on several levels, and after pissing enough powerful people off he was forced to flee Boston in the middle of a blizzard, walking 55 miles through deep snow, yeah… no mass pike. It was there visiting a friendly-ish tribe. Next, he went on to found Providence, write the first attempt at a lexicon fo American Indian words, as well as other books and tracts aimed at pissing people in power off with brash statements like the one below In 1683 he died was buried, eaten by a tree, then dug up and buried again, The root that ate Roger Williams in on display in the Carriage House of the Brown House Museum

Introvert, autodidact, polymath, writer, spiritual seeker, mystic and weirdo. These are me. With abundant fascinations, fixations. foibles, follies, frivolity and freakishness. I love much and hate not at all. Welcome to my world. May you escape with your sanity intact.
