Everyone has a story to tell

and you never know where those stories will take you. I've journeyed all around the world, back to places I never could have anticipated -- like 1932 Gee's Bend, Alabama, and behind-the-scenes at a contemporary zoo; to the shores of an African water hole and the frozen continent of Antarctica; to the art museum and to my childhood home on Willie Road, and to the farmers' market just down the street from where I live now. There's always a new adventure waiting for me when I show up at the page sometimes poetry, sometimes prose. Come, won't you walk with me a while?

Oh, and P.S.
