I have been writing poetry for a very long time...because I have to...influences include...David Lerner, Yi Sha, Jack Micheline, Bob Kaufman, Leonard Cohen, Li Po, Matsuo Basho, Issa, Charles Bukowski, Diane di Prima, Michael Madsen, Baudelaire, Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Gregory Corso, Yevtushenko, Lorca, Rimbaud etc. My favorite poem is 'Mein Kampf', by David Lerner.
I have been studying philosophy for more than 30 years...western and eastern. I have been influenced by Seneca and his Stoicism and Epicureanism,  Existentialism, Zen Buddhism, Lao Tzi, Chuang Tzi but it is the philosophy of Friedrich Nietzsche that has had the profoundest impact on the way I live my life.
