Hey Missisippi. Love back, big time. Isn’t it incandescently beautiful, that we are alive, so very alive, at the same time, right now? Thank you for brightening my day. It’s an honor to reach you. This is precisely my favorite thing about the internet. Please stay in touch. One love.


Anonymous asked: Why do you close your eyes in a lot of pictures?

When I close my eyes, I create the darkness with which I may perceive true light. Love to you.


comptonass-mark asked: When I read things, I usually get a strong mental image. While reading the poetry on your website, I mostly had a feeling of Autumn brought forth by your words. Being that that is my favorite season, I very much enjoyed them. Keep up the awesome work

To have summoned for you, this is my privilege. Thank you for taking the time to read my work, and for writing me such a thoughtful message. Autumn is likewise my favorite season, for personal and profoundly impersonal reasons. There is magic in the surrender. Bless, stay in touch. 1love.

heartsalve asked: Why must you torture me, by appearing so beautiful, so suddenly, only to tease me with your paucity? (The unavailability of your prose.) I have no "patience" for love, Love.

Love. This is the absolute kindest. What’s your name?

Ted is (fingers crossed) on the way. I so appreciate your enthusiasm.

I have an excerpt avail for free on my website at the moment, and as mentioned earlier I do tweet bits and pieces intermittently.

Thank you. I’m exploring your wonderful work at the moment; so very colorful and wise. I hope you stay in touch!
