About Me

My photo
I paint, make collages and mixed media work. I write poetry. I reflect on the Tao.

Art credo

I believe that the poetic arts may very well be the last hope for humanity to avoid its own extinction.

I believe that making poetry in words, song, music, dance, images, objects and experiences is a subversive act, undermining the dangerous arrogance of the mind that knows everything and understands nothing.

I believe that making poetry challenges the divisive assumption of our science, our technology, our societies, our nations, and, indeed, many forms of art...that pit human against nature, group against group, person against person.

I believe that putting the poetic arts to the didactic service of a cause is to put poetry to the sword.

I believe that the true place and function of the poetic arts is as a bridge between I and Thou, so that there is an understanding of uniqueness within oneness.
