Oh, and by the way, I guess it might be helpful to orient those who find this website to know a bit about me.
My name is Timothy Hodgens. I am, as of this writing, a whisker away from passing the three-quarters of a century mark in my life. I am happily married to my wife Mary; we have been together for forty six years. We have been blessed with three wonderful offspring and to date four growing miracles called grandchildren.
I have earned my living and paid my bills and also found my way for the past forty five years as a psychologist. Most of that time was in private practice working with individuals in psychotherapy or with couples around marital issues. No publications to date. It may come as news to most, but most clinicians never publish anything in the professional journals. In a way, this website may become the primary publication of my lifetime.
Prior to the above I lived for several years in a monastic setting. It made some sense for me to do that at that time in my life, but it was not to be for me long term. Curiously I find that what I do now in my life is what I would call “spiritual” but without religious affiliation or inclination.
Earlier life: born in Brooklyn, New York. So many stories there. On reflection, I own every piece of my story. It has all been necessary. None of it has been wasted, even the mistakes and the missteps. So much has happened, but most importantly, I am so grateful to be here and to be able to take all of this moving freshly into the rest of my life.
