Had the greatest thrill of my wee life Sunday, being privileged to visit the home of Edgar Allen Poe, in Baltimore, MD!

About Me

Writing, for me, has always been the friend who brought out the best in me, and who would never argue with me, except when necessary to point out my many obvious inconsistancies.
Writing and I have had a comfortable relationship for over forty years now, and, with the addition of a ready community of others with similar companions, both I and my writing have grown enormously in the past two years.
Lately, I am asked more and more often to mentor those who are just starting out, though my style is very much not in the current fashion. This I take as high praise, and with luck and persistance, mayhap I can bring a lost soul or two back from the brink of diary-hea so prevalent here, and convert their doubtlessly sincere emotions into actual poetry: a little Rhyme, a little Focus, a lot less Profanity, and a beautiful Thought becomes, as if by magic, a beautiful Read! Try it! You'll see!

It's nearly a year later that I come here and discover this very sad news. Thank you for sharing your fine writing with us, my friend, and may you rest in peace.

Friends, if you have not yet heard, I have sad news. Mark is no longer with us. He died on May 4th, 2016. I don't know any of the details, but this is a shock and a serious loss to the WC community. Rachel Gray is his sister and can be found on Facebook. I know it is a hard time for the entire family. There is now a collective hole in all our hearts.

Haven't written in over a year, since coming to Vegas and some months prior. Only recently got back online after a four-months' hiatus. Just one o' those decades, I guess. But go to "My Writing", click last, and read some of the old stuff--I've got several I'm sure you haven't seen!
