Meet Leonard Woolsey

Thanks for the visit — I’m glad you were curious enough to find this page.

Here is the short (there really isn’t a longer version):

Somehow I became a writer — ‘somehow’ being the operative word.

Years ago my fifth-grade teacher pulled me aside and said, “Leonard, you should really think of becoming a writer. You have got a great way with words.”

Was she just playing the role of an encouraging and supporting teacher to a student finding his way through elementary school? Who knows, but it kicked around my head for a lifetime.

I once read to be a writer, you have to find your voice. Well, for most of my life I really didn’t have anything to say.

Then came children and the turning of my world upside down. A near-death experience. Being Born Again. Life events started unfolding before me like one of those paper fortune telling toys we made in grade school. And about as surprising.

What I seem to write about is not rocket science. But life, it turns out, is one giant shared experience. I’m not blazing any new trails, discovering hidden secrets to life. But what I do – and humbly – is to try and capture those little moments in life which might easily pass me by.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you find something here you like and come back again.

Some people like his work – his writings and columns earning awards from the Associated Press as well as multiple press associations…for what that is worth.

  1. Leonard, I have reposted your response to the Thursday board meeting in Seguin on FB. Thank you for that insightful summary. We long term residents are feeling stunned and hugely let down by the board. As a refresher, I was the one fascinated by your hair! Frankly, I cannot recall who introduced us, but I am grateful that they did and that you were there to capture the essence of democracy in a small town!

  2. I was delighted to meet you at our very interesting school board meeting, here, in Seguin. Please, correct your typos. You are a an elegant voice for us. You were there, your were appalled. Fix the typos. We want the world to know your view.
