Dennis T. Maglinte is a bioinformatics programmer by training. More importantly he is a father, husband, brother, son and a friend. During his spare time he writes about the human condition and the condition of the mind, body and spirit as it pertains to his own experiences and observations of the world and existence around him. His words are a reflection of the soul. Through the conversation of his heart, he hopes that others may see the conversation taking place in their own heart and bring others into it.

Some call this peace. I call it an awareness of the heart.
