Site Title

The title for the site is derived from “September Song,” which has been sung by many artists, my favorite being Willie Nelson:¬†https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7810J78TmbU

“Oh the days dwindle down. . . to a precious few” are lyrics from this song. . . and I am no longer in the September of my life. . .


My journey has carried me from nuclear engineering (BS, University Buffalo) to psychology (PhD, University of Rochester), with a brief stopover in the philosophy of science (MS, University Buffalo); from traditional religion to humanism; from teacher to novice/retiree; from researcher to blogger.

Before retiring, I spent 37 years as Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, served as Director of the Graduate Clinical Psychology Program, and published extensively on topics at the intersection of psychology, science, religion and existential concerns.
