I grew up in Texas, second son (and second child) in a family that grew to thirteen siblings by my senior year in college.
I meandered from home up to Boston for College (result of a deficiency in basic geography), met classmate Maureen Reilly, and “married New England,” domiciling near her closely-knit family. Our seven children basically have “sibling cousins” and enjoy holidays and celebratory occasions, often enhanced by musical bonfires with several family members and friends playing, singing, and spiriting.
Family influences are prominent in many of my verses, especially “The Wanderer’s Waltz.”
My strategy with this website is to use the cloud to record my written creative activities, and publicize (and maybe even sell) my published works.
