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. So far, nothing has lit me up enough to write more. I hope that changes.
