Born in California, I traveled the world after the Vietnam War. I studied music and art in order to heal my spirit. I met my wife in Mexico and we are blessed with two wonderful children. I completed my education in art and biology with attached teaching credentials. I painted for forty years and began to write poetry at the end of this period. I was inspired by an intuition of enlightenment. The poems describe my sense of beauty and wonder at our cosmic being. We are little, but we are a part of everything.
