Born the son of a farmer and school teacher; raised to love hard work and the diversity of life; grew to love dirty Martinies, fine cigars and dice; Tried to live out the white picket fence Americian dream; Gave up to live out a life crossed between Hemingway Novels, Jimmy Buffet songs and e.e. cumming's poems; Fathered two of the most bueatiful childern in the world; Now spends his time raising his son and daughter and enjoying the breif adventures that life brings documenting his soul with poetry. more »
