More > Esquimo song, Proverbs, Thomas Cole, Egon Schiele, Rabindranath Tagore, Ecclesiastes, and Robert Frost.

My themes might be different now, but still I will live on the edge of my seat: fascination vitally matters. The state of Maine is a fascinating place. The intricacies of color abound everywhere.
