"The poet doesn't invent. He listens."~Jean Cocteau

I invite you to look at more paintings like these mandalas.

     I love this quote as it reminds me that art and poetry help me to stop. To listen. To pay attention to the world. I am eternally grateful for any writer or artist who has inspired me to do so. I humbly hope my work might do the same.

     After years of words piling up, this blog will attempt to put them into good order. Here you will find poems, thoughts and photos of art in progress and essays (some previously published elsewhere). I hope, dear visitor that you find something worthy. Thanks for taking a look
