Mostly I use my creative energies for my own enjoyment and delight, yet, if you like what I do, I'm also happy to share them with you...
My writing rises out of a lifetime of using words in speech and print. Words capture the essence of experience and relationship, which are at the very heart of life. As I hear and read and learn and understand, I want to respond. So it is that words compel me to spirit and action, changing me into what I can yet become, driving me into tomorrow, animating what I do. That's why I talk and write, and invite you into the conversation...
My art is something else, coming to me late in time. There is within me an urge to create. I've applied it to my life, my marriage, my family, my community, my world. After a lifetime as a do-it-yourself-er, mostly in words and music and wood and leadership, I went to a workshop about woodblock printing. There I found a medium for my message. So, I print images of reality and imagination, places I like and things I value. If they touch you in ways you like, I'm glad for you to have them, too...
