I used to teach, but now I don’t. I’ve published hundreds of poems, articles, and essays, and have edited journals, books, and anthologies. My most recent book of poems, The Light You Find, was published by Blue Begonia Press. I have an affinity for campfires, movies (on the big screen), and long walks, and I live in Yakima, Washington--The Fruit Bowl of the Nation.
HOME IS A LOT MORE THAN WHERE YOU CAME FROM
formed in childhood
can take a lifetime.
