My Stories memoirs, essays, drawings, poems, etc.
I have a lot of stories from my past. These are a few. I hope to keep adding more each month so that I eventually have enough to warrant publishing them in a book.
- Outlaw Country Boy’s Tension and Hope - 1969-1971
- Fifth-Grade Perfection and Lies - 1975
- May I Shine Your Shoes? - 1978-1979
- Why Not? - 1982
- College with MLK - 1984
- Backstage at Gunpoint - 1985
- I’m Not a Spy! - 1987
I like to draw. I haven’t done it in a while. These were drawn in the lobby of the Rex Hotel in San Francisco in the late 90’s. I would sit in a dark corner and pretend I was an artist. There was a great art supply store nearby that inspired me to start doing it.
I want to want to write poetry. Like puns, I’m not exactly sure what a poem is yet - although I usually know one when I see one. I try to read at least one poetry book by each new U.S. Poet Laureate in order to become inspired. They are appointed annually by the Librarian of the U.S. Congress.
