Fat Soul Philosophy is like an enormous tent, under which tables and chairs are set up, awaiting people from many faiths and cultures who wish to share their traditional foods with one another. Here, listening takes place–and laughter, too. Maybe a little music. Listening, learning, sharing, celebrating the beauty of diversity: this is what Fat Soul International is all about. Thanks to my colleague at Jesus, Jazz, and Buddhism, Professor and guitarist Jay McDaniel, the Fat Soul vision is becoming an on-the-ground reality. You will find in the beautiful college town of Conway, a Fat Soul Band and Fat Soul Festivals and Fat Soul Gatherings starting to pop up. You are invited! Check out this upcoming gathering . . .

Yes, indeed: it’s delicious all the way around!
Oh what fun — and Arkansas is one of the few remaining states in my goal of visiting all 50 sooner or later. But no way I’ll get there next week…. In spirit, will be there.
Hello Yvonne! Thanks so much for your comment. I’ve never been to Arkansas either, and I won’t be there for this event as I am still here in Ecuador. But someday . . .yes! (We’re moving to New Mexico in November, so at least I’ll be closer to the fun.)
You can definitely see your skills in the work you write.
The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who
aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.
Hello Fred! Your words are so much appreciated–really. Just what I needed. Thank you!
