I love writing, photography and art. (I drew the tiger used as my avatar)
I just joined AP in March, 2017.
I've always wanted to write creatively for a living but, I guess, the river of life doesn't always flow in our direction.
Plus, I hear the income stream is barely trickling in the writing biz.....ha!
One day I hope to focus more on writing children's books, short stories and poetry. I dabble when I have extra time but wish I could devote more.
I grew up in Vermont and went to art school in Miami and Los Angeles. I then went on to study journalism. So far, I've had a colorful broadcasting career and now live in Florida.
This site has prompted me to write more than I ever have.
I love nature and animals of all kinds (especially dogs) and one day hope to have my own menagerie.

when reflections on the wet cement
are drained of every drop." - MM
"A good poem packed with power
one that's awesome
and is wild,
On its own it can flower
and then blossom
in a child." - MM
