Rodric Johnson (Rodric29)

Joined 5 years ago from Phoenix, Arizona. Last activity 3 hours ago.

Rodric Anthony Johnson was born in the bustling city of Rochester, New York in the wintry month of November.  Being migrant by nature, his family uprooted and moved to the Southeast. He now lives in the Southwest in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife and kids. 

Rodric aspires to be a great writer and has published a few works, Memory Piece being the most prized of his, and plans to release others as they come along.

He has completed an undergraduate in psychology and a graduate in education, but his interests include topics mostly regarding religion and politics--the two taboo convesational topics.

He has and does have major health problems (that he has written about) and personal loss that shape his daily living. Because of education verses his health, he has limited capacity for anything other than writing. He is inspired to rise to the occasion because of all that God has trusted him to experienece.

As with most biographies, this one lists his best efforts and character--like an advert. There is no doubt that his very human and flawed peronality should never be an advert as a writer.

He is not one to be inspirational during his most poignant health problems and requires constant and exhaustive support from his Wife Afryka and his six children Xavier, Naomi, Sariah, Mosiah, Ephraim, and Miriam.

A host of others who support the Johnson family who are not mentioned here by name exist through extend family, church, associates, and friends..

His muse, or inspirition is his angel daughter Zipporah Linda-ann Johnson. In her death he found the blackest of times; yet, in his striving to see her again according to his faith, he finds satisfaction and courage.

Rodric writes to entertain though sometimes it comes across in a peculiar manner. He occacionally expresses:

I get on my own nerves sometimes; so, I know I get on your's!

 

You may find in reading his words that he has that affect on you also!
