I have been a 'student of Thomas Jefferson's since the early 1970s. During that time I have both studied Jefferson and looked at the world through the prism of his thought and life. Although I'm not an academic scholar, historian, nor expert, I believe I have arrived at some insights that could benefit others. Using my interest in history, politics, world affairs, psychology, and spirituality, my intention is to reveal Jefferson's wisdom and vision inorder to help us guide our lives, as well as provide direction for America and the world. A tall order, indeed, but well worth the effort.

Everyone is welcome, you don't need to know much about Thomas Jefferson or American history. In fact, you don't even need to have much interest in Jefferson the man or history. The guidance he can provide is both personal and national, psychological and political, moral and economic, and spiritual and international. Our Jefferson doesn't provide clear answers, rather he helps us ask good questions, expand our perspective, and find our own answers. The focus is not on some long deceased historic figure placed on a pedestal, but on how Thomas Jefferson's wisdom and vision can be transfered into our lives, our nation, and our times.
We welcome your interest and comments.
