Thanks for dropping by. I’m a poet and writer who’s rattled by our increasingly technological society. I was the child who headed to the lake or into the woods with a bag of books and notebooks. The world outside under the sky remains an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
But I’m also the adult who’s happy to visit—online—the drawings of a young Irish artist whose work I discovered at one of my favorite bookstores, or to click through to a friend’s newly published poem. That sort of immediate access to another kind of inspiration can be breathtaking for those of us who grew up without computers.
Reading and writing, especially the creative kind, liberate our imaginations from what-is and nudge us—or shove us—toward what-could-be. In these times, imagination seems more important than ever.
I’m based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but seem to live all across the southern Lower Peninsula these days.
