I love classical music.

Isn’t music the sounds of creation inspiring us to relax, or cry, or rejoice, or empathize, or laugh, or draw, or pain with a camera, or brush a beautiful or provocative ideology,  or millions of ideas and emotions, all from the linear progression of sounds, combined sounds or diffident sounds or harmonized sounds sometimes in polyphony, sometimes random, sometimes dreaming into existence or magnified a thousand times over. So what of death, so the cessation of breath, so the memory goes on in raindrops, sunbeams, dust, soil, space atoms, clouds beyond penumbra, a spirit of physical, windows into meaning, essence of eternity, languish of atoms, molecules of paramecium, cellular walls, bodies in a vacuum, realities incandescent light, photons, invisible radiations, relaxed bacterium, viruses, microscopic electrons, subatomic, mountains, valleys, rivers, houses, essence of ice, sweet morsels, morbid smells, magic crystals, sea monkeys, african animals, clouds, air, oxygen, elements, lingering emotion, disappearing love, blissful food, sour grapes. Meaning. Nonmeaning, nothing, something, everything, and on and on and on…in music…DSC_0186 (1).jpg

I was a University and community college instructor before retiring. I also worked in fast food restaurants, and retail stores. I am an ordinary man writing for because I want to write and because my education prepared me to write; BA English lit, MA English, EdS higher education, and MFA creative writing, free verse poetry and essays. Blogs are an answer to high-priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to self-publish his first 1000 copies of the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass because in 1855 poetry did not sell. Most poets make a living in other ways than writing. Wallace Stevens was an insurance executive, and TS Eliot was a banker. Many writers teach, and always there have been writers who have written because they needed to express their thoughts and feelings. They wrote not necessarily to make money but to express "the old universal truths of the human heart" according to Faulkner. Here I reach a wider audience I missed than by self-publishing, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience for less expense than self-publishing. I self-published my first books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude; poetry and photo books which were easier to self-publish than to seek a not to seek a publisher company. This blog allows me to write for an interested audience because I write poetry and personal essays. I write for a friendly audience and present to you a slice of my writing. Perhaps you will enjoy what you read.
