Activities:In the last decade, 2004 to 2015, I have created an extensive audience or readership. I address myself to a circle, a crowd or single individuals. I try to make of my interactions more than the typical ones found at sites like Facebook and twitter. The interactions or connections at such popular social networking sites often reduce friendship to a feeling or an image, a sense of connection to faraway or nearby friends about everyday things based, for the most part, on very short, pithy posts. Such connections involve posts that often contain little about one"s true difficulties in life. A world of privacy and an image is created. There is nothing wrong with that, with this type of site and networking style, but it is not my style, not my approach, not my MO, modus operandi, to use a who-dun-it term. My website is found at: http://www.ronpriceepoch.com/ You can also go to any search engine and type: Ron Price followed by any one of a number of words in addition to: poetry, forums, etc.
Beliefs:I am now 70 and I attempt to endow various themes and a wide range of subjects in the arts and sciences with many layers of meaning. In these last 18 years on the world-wide-web I have evoked a complex range of responses in readers who come upon my work, responses which range from lavish enthusiasm to utter indifference and quite intense criticism. The solitary work of literary creation requires a type of talent, some earned ability or unearned gift of grace which is almost never collaborative. Social networking may expose readers to this or that book, this or that video or piece of music, this or that restaurant, food dish or pleasurable activity, this or that idea or cause....I am a Baha'i and have been associated with this religion for more than 60 years. My extensive writing is also imbued with Baha'i concepts. Readers can go to the offical international Baha'i website if they want to know about my specific beliefs at: http://www.bahai.org
Books:SOME OF MY BOOKS AND LINKS ON THE INTERNET; BOOK BY RON PRICE...These three books were put on the Internet in 2002 and 2003 and contain some 6000 pages of content. In addition I have been able to put over four million words at some 8000 internet sites: forums, discussion sites, poetry sites, essay sites, et cetera. Anyone having questions or comments about this content can contact me at my email address: ronprice9@gmail.coM; 1. The Emergence of a Baha"i Consciousness in World Literature: The Poetry of Roger White: 300 pages http://bahai-library.org/books/white or http://www.juxta.com/main"..download free; 2. Pioneering Over Five Epochs:3000 plus pages. At 80,000 words/book this site has the equivalent of 6 books"". Website: http:// www.ronpriceepoch.com/; 3. Pioneering Over Five Epochs: An Autobiographical Study and a Study in Autobiography: 2600 page, 5 volume book.
Movies:Although my experience with the print and electronic media began, insensibly and sensibly, by 1950 after my conception in October 1943, the formal study of these media did not begin until I taught media studies at the Ballarat College of Advanced Education, now the University of Ballarat, from 1976 to 1978. I was then in my early thirties. In the 1980s and 1990s, first as an adult educator at the Open College of Tafe in Katherine, Northern Territory, and then at the Thornlie College of Technical and Further Education(Tafe), now Polytechnic-West, I taught media studies yet again. I was in my forties, and then my fifties, and soon to retire from FT teaching by the time I stopped teaching media studies. Media Studies was just one in a long list of subjects, over 100 different syllabi, that I taught in my years of teaching in post-secondary schools and colleges, universities and institutions of learning, from 1974 to 2005.
Music:I have collections of notes and articles in two arch-lever files on classical music. I also have an additional two arch-lever files, one on popular: folk/rock music, and one on jazz music. I developed these collections after I retired from my career as a FT and PT student and teacher, a career which had lasted from 1949 to 2009. In 2009 I went on two old-age pensions, one from Canada and one from Australia. I could then enjoy the world of music much more than I ever had during my working life, my life as: a student and a teacher, a lecturer and an adult educator, as well as a parent and a father, among literally dozens of other ascribed and achieved roles that were part of my life at various times and for various periods from the 1940s to the first decade of the 21st century. Music has played an important part in my life unlike the many forms of dance and gymnastics, figure skating and synchronized swimming which are sports that incorporate dance.
Quotes:Anselm Hollo in his book The Poet's Notebook: Excerpts from the Notebooks of 26 American Poets(WW Norton and Co., NY, editor, Stephen Kuudisto, et al., 1995) wrote that: "I love reading poets' notebooks. Poets are curious critters, and it is a pleasure to relax with the jottings and musings of such literary practitioners." Many writers and poets, though not all, keep notebooks. I have a section of my autobiography, Pioneering Over Five Epochs, section IX, which contains information relevant to my notebooks. What readers find there provides a general framework for the many notebooks I have kept over the years. I used to collect quotations before the WWW got going, but now there are dozens of sites with good quotations. The great historian Edward Gibbon wrote about the complexities of motivation and much else. You might enjoy some of these quotations from his magnificent Decline and Fall at this link FY possible I: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/e/edward_gibbon.html
Sports Teams:Athletics are necessary if not indispensable for the future success of the nation as well as of the individual. "A sound mind in a sound body" was the motto of the Greeks and the model of the strong, healthy and vigorous Spartans. Their carrying out of an athletic plan was a cause for their long existence as a city state of Greece and for the luxuriant literary culture of Athens. This model in just the same way should be put into action if we wish to have any success in this world. Athletics refresh the body, tranquilize and enlighten the mind, and develop moral character. As a concrete example let us take a student in his college activities. The student who does exercise tends to be more fresh and vigorous, he seldom gets sick and tired. He also tends to have a more jovial character, and good disposition. his chief characteristics.
TV Shows:During my years as a teacher and tutor, lecturer and adult educator, 1967 to 2005, I used various television documentaries. The doco I used more than any other was Civilisation: A Personal View by Kenneth Clark, a documentary series outlining the history of Western art, architecture and philosophy since the Dark Ages. The series was produced by the BBC and aired in 1969 on BBC2.

Apologetics Anyone?

Part 1: Since there are so many questions raised and issues discussed concerning people"s basic assumptions about life, about their philosophy, about their religious beliefs, indeed, about their very approach to reality and the way their society goes about organizing things, it seemed like a useful exercise, useful at least to me and hopefully to some others at this site, to say a few things about: My Position and Beliefs: My Religion. Religion, in the sense that I am using it here, is th...
