I think it is amazing that I have a book out. There was no sign of my being a poet in any of my schooling, especially in the free world. I flunked all of my English and language... More > classes, and did not pick up reading until I lost my physical freedom.
I became a student in life, learning whatever I could, seeking out new things to know and do. This led to my meeting some splendid people, and to reading and studying some fascinating books. I gained a love and appreciation for the arts, for language, and for English. One must love and be love to be real – to walk in your own shoes.
I offer these poems of realness with an open heart, mind, and soul. I hope this book inspires you to be you, and to walk in your own realness – to stay real, forever glowing and growing.< Less
