Introduction: One Minute Monologues

When I retired as an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in 2011, I began writing a short, free-verse, daily exegesis of my experience of life. And here they all are! I have currently published 60 Monologues with 100 entrees per published Monologue, or 6,000 total, with more to come.

I offer these to you as springboards into your own reflections in the service of realization, insight, enlightenment and awakening, and trust that some of them will be useful, and that you will enjoy wandering among the words.

There is a drop-down menu under “One Minute Monologues” in the menu list at the top of this page, which will take you to the various listings to be found here. I am adding additional entries on a regular basis, so check back as the mood strikes you.

I am editing and updating these posts as time goes by, and the earlier ones will be more in need of than than the later ones, but if I live long enough, they all will appear as they should.

A live “up-to-the-minute” collection of daily posts can be found on my “Jim Dollar’s Photography and Philosophy” site on WordPress at:

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
