Describing myself is not an easy task... and the poems collected here are the product of diverse experiences and different "selves" that emerged from those situations. They are also the product of an education that began with voracious lonely independent reading... followed by 4 years of literary and other study at Southern Oregon University. I was then blessed and cursed with a spell as an English professor in steamy teeming Thailand... a strange adventure which battered my sensitive health but which has also been an extremely fertile source of creative material, not to mention a conversation piece. The writing collected here shows my whole journey, and frankly many of the older pieces are of dubious value. However, this garden contains the flowers of my life and in weeding it I would likely destroy some good poems.
