Bio
I am a poet-essayist-singer-songwriter, and advocate for the poor, with a teaching and counseling background. I grew up in Florida, now live in Asheville, North Carolina. I also lived in New England 20 years. I love nature, music, and poetry. I am married and we have three adult-kids between us and four grandkids! I am interfaith, leaning toward Taoist, Celtic, and Native American spirituality, and an "Obama Democrat." My book of song lyrics (Back to the Sun) and my book of essays on creativity (On the Blue Ridge Line) can also be found on Amazon. In addition, I have a book of sayings on Amazon--Sayings for the Creative Person, Reflections on Personal Growth, Things that Matter (prose-poetry), and Alive and Free (2-14 poetry). In 2015, I hope to write new books on creativity, homelessness and aging, along with new poetry.
