Thank you so much for visiting! My major interests are in writing poetry, young adult adventure & humorous, light-sci-fi short stories. I’m looking forward to making friends, contacts & networking because I believe all creative artists have to support & lift each other up. We can all help each other along the path.
I’ve always loved the writings and music of those who seemed to hear something different. I never cared for most writing that was popular and was always drawn to the out of the ordinary writing or ideas. Whatever was other than here…that was where I wanted to be. This is the Elsewhere. The world itself seemed predictable and unconvincing. Beautiful Elsewhere is about what I feel I have heard when I have brought myself into the clearing of my soul. It’s there where I feel the music is heard, the music I can hear.
I feel like I’ve lived a wild & exciting life. Any time I think it might be predictable I tell myself that predictable isn’t all that bad. I’ve been on jet plane leaving Japan when one of the engines blew up & caught on fire. I nearly drowned in a city pool when I was 9. I’ve been shot at (don’t ask). I’ve been a radio DJ, advertising executive, freelance copy-writer, fashion photographer & owner of a fashion company. There have been tremendous highs/lows but it’s all been living. I’ve been on hundreds of Huck Finn-type adventures. I’ve met wonderful people from some of the beautiful places I’ve been fortunate to see. I will forever be in love with Japan & Taiwan and long to go to China.
Now is the time of my life to sit down and put it all (well some of it…some I would never tell again) into words.
Bout me: serious NFL fan (go Colts!) absinthe fan nicknamed Kirby by my Grandfather due to my apparent love of Jack Kirby‘s Spider-man(i’m a bigger batman fan). non-activist, but concerned over the growing nexus of global finances and militarism. chopstick food lover, proud to have a one-of-a-kind chinese g/f. blog named after a line from Marvin Bell poem. proud stompin’ grounds include Indiana, Ohio, Taiwan and Japan. God is my closest associate and confident.
