Nathanael was born on the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean in the 1960s. He grew up in Australia. While in Australia, he became close to a man named Richard who “adopted” him as his nephew. At that time he went by the name Nat, and his “Uncle Richard” used to joke with him saying that “G’Nat is just a G’nickname for G’Nathanael.” “Uncle Richard” thought that was hilarious. This blog is therefore written from a “G’Nat’s Eye View” of the world.
Nathanael came to the United States permanently in 1980 where he began his post-secondary studies. He holds degrees in Religious Education, Liberal Studies, English, and Education. He lives with his wife and son (the most important people in his life and his first love and joy) in the Southern portion of the United States (although he dreams of moving to San Francisco). He has been an educator for the past twenty years, and enjoys: working in their “kitchen window” vegetable garden, everything associated with baseball (he grew up with cricket), cooking, travel, and photography. He has concluded that life is what he makes it, and he tries to see to it that it is full of love, joy, peace, and light. He occasionally succeeds, and it is enough.
