A Universe expressed through a Window of Experience

About Skywalker

 

I was born John Eric Nicholson II in Escondido, California on June 28, 1984 as the product of Denise Monroe and John Eric Nicholson. I spent the majority of my years in Moultrie, Georgia, which I claim as home.

I’m officially the father of a baby boy, Xavier Holmes, born February 2006, after becoming a blessed husband on Nov 7, 2005 to my high school sweetheart Angela. I was scheduled to separate from the U.S. Army on May of 2006 to endure a normal civilian lifestyle, but I was “stop-lossed” and forced to serve another tour in Iraq as the Supply Sergeant for Alpha Company of 5-20th Infantry Battalion. This deployment was the worst experience of my life. I have lost both comrades and friends, endured a 3-month extension to the original 12-month deployment, and encountered excessive levels of stress due to the demands of my job, loss, and dealing with separation from family.

Through all the trials, tribulations, losses, and deferred dreams, I have been blessed with the strength, character, and wisdom to overcome all of my life’s obstacles through faith. I am focused on my future in achieving a middle class status in society, becoming a defined child of God, and developing a family in which my mother can be proud of to carry on her legacy, and the legacy of an example my family follows- Jesus Christ. I’m currently living in Kuwait, working for CSA as a Senior Supply Technician. I’m more focused than ever! I’m a divorcee. My son, Xavier, lives with his mother in Florida. I am just a man looking to spread love and be the best that I can be for everyone I encounter in life in hopes to inspire others to do the same. There are too many qualities for me to list to define who I am because of how expansive my soul is. If you are stubborn and love consistency – I will not be your most compatible associate. I have many beliefs, most in which are a result of my experience, but also a result of my open mind set. As good as I can be, I have a set of horns to accompany my set of wings – I am a product of God that is forever taking a new form. Don’t spend too much time trying to figure me out; that’s like trying to figure out the mechnical movements of water – ever so changing. Just enjoy me as I come, and you’ll appreciate the end result everytime.

    What happens to a dream deferred?

    Does it dry up
    Like a raisin in the sun?

    Or fester like a sore–
    And then run?

    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over–
    like a syrupy sweet?

    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.

    Or does it explode?

    Oh no, John Skywalker… Your dreams, although they may have once been deferred, you are making your dreams into reality every single day! I admire you and your ambition; your passion for life, and your way with words. I love your ONEness with God and I know he will continue to bless you on your tireless journey to GREATNESS! One love my brotha!
