Why I Do What I Do
I do have some news to report, however, I will be adding a new publication to those available. My small book of poetry based on life, history, and family in the rural Southwest will be here in a few days and available for purchase. These mostly free verse poems deal with landscape, weather, animals, ancestors, and my emotions involving all of these. I hope you'll be interested in reading them and tell me what you think. I'll try to add things from time to time, possibly including the occasional poem. I'm very comfortable with reasoned critique and may make use of any of it that seems right to me. I am also a teacher, workshop leader, giver of critique as well, so if you would like a response to your work, email something to me and we'll talk. Just don't expect a back-patting because I don't tend to pull punches about stuff like that.
