Describing How I See Things

I have been asked a number of times over the years how I have come to see things the way I see things.  That is true especially of people who have known me for some time and had a chance to see how impossible it is to stereotype my religious views adequately and, in some cases, know how I think about some topics - since I am all over the place on the conservative-liberal spectrum when it comes to lots of random, individual topics.

The shortest response I've been able to construct to describe how my brain operates is that I am a "thinker tinkerer".

My father and brothers are excellent mechanics - and one of my brothers loves working on computers. I have no desire to do any of that. I take things apart mentally and reconstruct them in my mind. That's just who I am.

I feel like your ability to think well has been a spiritual gift that you were born with and also one that you have carefully cultivated throughout your life. Thank you for being willing to share it with others. I'm not looking for anyone to do my thinking for me, but I sometimes feel like my mind needs to be "shown some different pathways" just to help it along! I appreciate your writings. Thanks again.
