Artist Statement

I grew up with the prose of Ernest Hemingway, the verse of Robert Frost and the music of Woody Gutherie. Those three guys continue to rattle around inmy head. They provide underlying theme and rhythm in my verse. My life has been a rocky journey, a search for the symmetries between nature, God and the daily tasks of living. Love is the prism through which these symmetries are reflected and my words a description, albiet a reaching one, of that reflection.
