“the intent of this blog is to incrementally build a body of thought that works toward integrating various topics, yoga, fitness, and the arts – it’s a process…”


In progress – what isn’t! 😉

at my age, other than saying “i’m here” 😉 there’s just too many things to say, to just say who i am –

the image below is “Barton Springs Canoe” a large (36×48) oil on canvas i think captures a chunk of me i like…contrasts, blendings of smooth edged colors, a human presence, and a slightly skewed perspective 😉


Original and Giclee both in Private Collections


image-wise, the skewed perspective also refers to the view from Barton Springs Rd Bridge in Austin, Tx

the arts, meditation, yoga, fitness – that’s a big part of me, but not all of me…

As the oldest of six, a father of three, and a grandfather of five, and married over thirty years, I believe, in writing stories and poems, I’ve found a perfect outlet for my years of living.

I have been writing and creating pictures since high school in the sixties, and began writing more seriously in the late 70s and early 80s.

One of my more recent surprises has been to read a definition of Romance that seems to generally fit the majority of both my poetry and fiction: a central story involving the relationship of two people, and a generally optimistic and satisfying ending.

With that revelation, I now view Romance fiction in a whole new light. 😉

But if I had to give one word about most of my fiction and poetry, and even my images, it’s relationships.

The interactions of people, especially couples and among family, seem to have the strongest hold on me. That would also help explain why even in my poetry about teachers and nurses and others, it is the relationship aspect that usually is my focus.

Below, is more general information about myself. I hope you can take advantage of the half dozen or so titles I offer free for downloads, and will also consider and enjoy my other work. Thanks so much!

  10. “The greatness of a man is in ITS simplicity” ~ By M.k.Gandhi.
    The power behind this noble thought is the yoga, which he did till his last days.

    I thank you to en light back the same power, which exists some deep in us.

    Thank you…By heart and soul.

    You have a very interesting site here. Thank you for visiting mine and leading me here.


  13. Adan,
    I can’t seem to change my email address on this site, so my new email address is:


    Delete the old one, mdg…., and forget it.

    AT&T has deceptive practices and unethical logic regarding its long-time customers and what they say they offer and what they actually offer. They had me delete my home phone to get wireless internet and then said I couldn’t get it OR my internet service back. Supposedly my block isn’t in their service area. This was after ordering it, confirming it, getting an installation date, and on and on. Said it was “advertising bulk mail.” We had had that home phone number since 1980 and I’ve had service with them since 1965. Go figure.
    Email me personally to get my new address. Thanks.
