I am a father of 3, a builder, a horticulturist, and a thinker-at-birth; i love words, and their dances, as well as their potential to share (I have been writing verse for the last 58 years; ). i have had the extraordinary good fortune, to have seen ginsberg, ferlinghetti, yevteshenko, voznesenski, and (recently) maya angelou LIVE!. i write to communicate what i think, feel, want, need and am grateful for; to see if there are 'like minds' out there, and if i can use language to engage them ..& i await the end of (this) world with a song in my heart, and a (rueful) smile on my lips
