This is the working title for my fourth collection of poems.
The inspiration for this latest “meditation” on life and love can be found in the following quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti…
“So WHEN you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, THEN you are listening not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed, to the whole of it, not part of it.”
As of now I have twenty seven (27) new poems ready to go for publication.
I have no idea when this collection will contain enough poems ready for publication, so if you care to check back from time to time as I make my way through another collection that’s fine. Or you can wait to be surprised along with some friends and family alike.
a few of the poems…
some advance reviews…
“I love your writing and I think it’s amazing that you have the discipline and desire to write all of these!!!! Sacral chakra on fire lol…”
~ Alison Lessard
“f**king good stuff… the way your images get burned in my mind’s retina without distracting me with trying to figure out too much. just gold!”
~ Mark Shepard
It’s never easy to “sum up” a life, any life, in a few short and sharp sentences. So here goes… I left home at seventeen years old one week after graduation by joining the US Air Force. I was fortunately stationed for four years at Soesterberg AB in the Netherlands (1986 to 1990). From 1995 to 1998 I lived and worked with the Montfort Missionaries, a Catholic religious community, serving in a number of ministries both in St. Louis, MO and Queens, NY.
In 1998 I graduated from St John’s University in Jamaica, NY (2nd in the class) with a BA in Theology, and I received a Master’s Degree in Philosophy from Fordham University in 2002.
My first three books of poetry are available on amazon.com, and right now besides working on this one I’m in the process of completing a collection of essays titled An Awakening Heart. I also have sketched out a rough draft for my first novel, A Road Less Traveled: Memoirs of a Watcher.
I live in Connecticut with my amazing wife Rumpa and our two children, Adam and Amy.
