This past week has been nothing short of catastrophic. There have been people literally dying in the streets. Black men shot by police in what should have been routine encounters; police officers t…

One dream ends and another begins. Really, though, it is the same dream, downsized. Much of what I envisioned may not be possible, but something will be possible. I am very grateful for all the s…

Poem by a friend: 

49


Black lives matter
Blue lives matter
All lives
           Matter
But does your life still
Matter
When you are black and
Blue?
Do all lives matter
When blues is the backdrop
Framing the frustration
Of their lives?
Does my life matter
When my blackness is not the
Color angels wear
But is the uniform of
A rebel?
Only rebels are good at
Singing the blues
Even angels rebel when god
Wont hear their cries!
When the song they've known
All their life becomes a song of
Lies
The white man may sing the blues
But it aint like mine !!!
The white man may bear the weight
Like sysyphus
But his weight aint mine !!!
Loving a woman wont placate it
I ask j.c., " can you you relate to it?"
The guitars echo the pain
Like a bullet shattering
My brain
Do you know what it feels like
To be blue?
To be black and blue?

Thanks once again to my wonderful friends who backed this project! Thanks also to the friends of friends who stepped up out of love to add their support! This has been a wonderful experience mostly because of all of you. I remain very, very grateful. Since "Notes from the Spirit" is more than $4,000 short of being funded with only 17 hours to go, it is very likely now that your pledges will not be collected and you will be released from all o...

Husband, father, poet, musician, door hardware genius.
Introduction
In my poetry I report the depth and breadth of what I sense and feel in the physical existence.

As a musician I play to make the ensemble sound good, and write to amuse and provoke thought and feeling. 

As a door hardware genius I embrace innovation and revere established standards, helping others by learning and by teaching.
