My Bio
Honestly, I don't know that anything I could put here would be as accurate or descriptive as necessary. In truth, I have been fortunate to become an eclectic blend of what my parents built and that which I made out to become - like most of us. Besides though, how do you tell the story of your life and not leave something out ?

In a brief glimpse, I know that in time I want to run for office - doing what I can in the only thing I have ever been good at. Perhaps I may even be given the opportunity to help people by showing a better way of fulfillment through civic involvement.

I want my wife to know how much I love her despite the knowledge that I probably will never be able to do so. I want to have children in an attempt at giving the gift which has brought me joy - and hope that I can do half the job my own did for me.

I'd like to buy some land - build our own castle, retire out from public life - to think and to write again if I could ever get over this damn block.

I would like to give my wife a smooth sportscar - so that in the comfort of cool autumn evenings, I can steal those keys to remember 17 and maybe enjoy the engineer I was not to become. Not to stay out too late - just a little while.

I seek the most perspective I can and there's a litany of adjectives that probably do a better job than anything I write; human, husband, son, brother, soldier, stoic/romantic, friend - did I mention human ?

The garbled marble groans garrulous, As the maw of mottled igneous – Babbles through tumbling brambles, Coughing and crackling billow by billow. Waxing a lonesome lyric… Amid a palette lit by crescent Indian indigo. A chorus of snow-stained sopranos - Punctuated in sonorous timbre… The nocturnal Minervans keep a solstice vigil, Seething to and fro a smaller crescendo.... Sweeping the sinewed symphony - Strands of frosted sand… Scattered anon across a more diamond desert. And as flock of a frozen fleet, So too do the nomadic narwhal of the plains – Birth to breathe from the ice-driven drifts. Plumes of

But I could not reach her. For a lifetime of seasons, Of sleet & sun, Of Spring... And Scarecrow - I grew. And in my audacious arrogance, In righteous rebellion - I dared defiance... Proud proclamation. And who should judge, The course of my grain ? For it was not my Icarian envy, That harvested the god's dismay. But, rather, In draconian devilry - They guarded the gaunlet, Keeping her ephemeral, Epicurean bodice... From me.... And though I was forever estranged, I felt the empathy in her soft frost whispers, Drank in her breath, And washed my worries in her watery expressions... Listening to the si
