David discusses, lectures and rants, but always in a conversational adult voice. Somehow both an agnostic and true believer, he radiates optimism while still seeking illumination in dark places. His favorite themes are community, virtues, values, and human growth. He will tease you into his world and then send you off to explore your own."
Some of these essays were previously published in David's weekly column in the "Dayton Review." He once described his intent as, "...giving my conservative neighbors something something to discuss and tempting my liberal neighbors to come out of the closet."
David Satterlee is one of those untamed souls who professes an interest in almost everything except mastering brain surgery. His wife lives in dread of his personal library someday crashing through the floor of his office into the living room. Undeterred, he maintains that, "a man knows himself by the books he keeps."
After retiring from a quarter-century of technical and communications work in industrial electronics, controls, and computers, he spent a decade as a consulting herbalist, and went on to manage media production for a Utah publisher. In all this time, David pursued a personal quest to understand why we think, believe, and act the way we do. He developed from a lay minister, through interests in meditation, natural healing, psychology, and philosophy. Now mobility and neurologically disabled, David does what he can for family. His personal goals are to read, think, write, repeat, and help save the world.
