I am older now and although I still philosophize on many of the topics I have previously written about, my place in the world is changing. Life seems more precious when one has less time to live but there is also a particular kind of joy that comes with growing older. I intend to entertain all I am capable of in these continued writings, wisdom, poetry and clouds. This is how I get to play each moment with all that is.
I am a philosopher via undergraduate education and discipline but my education is much more worldly. I have been collecting bits of wisdom in the form of words and quotations for over fifty years. These words have come from writers, poets, politicians, the every day man and woman, the famous and the infamous. The words of wisdom presented here are a legacy to the authors and a gift to the readers.
I am a poet at heart. When nothing else can get me through the day, I am confident in opening a book of poetry I will find words to ease my burden, lighten my heart and bring me to a place of peace within this life I live. A poet looks at life from different perspectives then turns it inside out and upside down to instill a better understanding of it to himself and hopefully the reader. These poems and poets make up the Poetry Anthology I always wanted to create.
I write primarily to share the things I love most in this world, reading, writing, thinking and dreaming. Available here are my collected writings, poetry, photographs and dreams. I write because I have a mind needing to express itself with words and a heart which sometimes needs to sing. As Sandra Cineros says, “If you don’t tell your most vulnerable secrets, someone will tell them for you, so you’d better get them out there before you die. I don’t want to have any open secrets.”
I have always loved clouds in all their variations. The dark clouds of storms, the puffy white thunderheads of changes to come, the strata, the cumulus, the nimbus, the female and the male. I love the poetry of clouds. Clouds and poetry have the same source of inspiration. Most of these photographs are taken from the balcony of my hotel suite here in Loja, Ecuador while some were taken during various journeys in other world ports.
