Welcome to The Clueless Gent’s Homepage

I am the Clueless Gent because the more I learn in life, the more I realize just how much I don’t know.  This may seem like an oxymoron ~ and maybe it is ~ but it’s been a truth and a driving force in my life.

I haven’t quite decided whether it is better to know a lot about a little or a little about a lot.  Nevertheless, my pursuit of truth, knowledge and wisdom seems never-ending.

In the realm of knowledge, I thank my mother and my teachers for instilling in me a love of reading.  I adore fiction!  It is my main mode of transport to other lands, other times, and other people.  Real or otherwise, I take whatever I can from stories and characters.

In The Clueless Gent website, I hope to share my love of reading and offer a glimpse into my perceptions of the world around me.  If you have the mind to do so, please tag along for the ride!

 SYNOPSIS

Holding On Loosely cover

Helicopter parents. Control freaks. Perfectionists. Intolerants. Over-consumers. Social media junkies. We all fit in there somewhere. Read one woman’s stories of clinging, turning loose, and becoming free.

We are overly busy helicopter parents, control freaks, perfectionists, intolerants, over-consumers and social media junkies–who worry, fear, laugh less, and always want more. In the midst of it, we wonder what it would feel like to open our hands and turn loose of all of it.

In HOLDING ON LOOSELY: Opening My Hands, Lightening My Load, and Seeing Something Else, author Dana Knox Wright tells stories of one who is hardwired to cling. To her children when they asked for a blessing to go. To someone else’s ideas, when she didn’t trust her own. She held on to prejudice when she would tell you she didn’t. She shut down for days while clinging to fear. She clung to youthfulness as if what would come next couldn’t be her life’s cherry on top.

In a particular season of her life, she recognized her bent to possess, to keep, to hold tightly, and to control was completely contrary to Jesus’ example. This is one woman’s history of holding on and her stories of turning loose–stories of the gentle and firm, humorous and heartbreaking ways God led her to turn loose. It is living minimally from the inside out.
