I hope you are safe from our sudden outburst of forest fires (they made national news) and finding time to enjoy our lovely natural world (those parts which aren’t on fire). I have several projects in the works right now, and a brief synopsis of each follows.

Words on Sand
My new chapbook, Words on Sand, combines poetry with some of my best nature photography. I have wrapped up the revisions and hope to have it published soon.
After an invitation to participate in an art exhibit this past summer, I produced a poster of my poem, “Water,” and a larger poster of my photograph of a mountain stream at Cloudland Canyon State Park, They were displayed as companion pieces. I have now developed some small posters which combine one of my photographs and one of my poems on one page. These are ready to print. I have also produced my first post card size miniature which combines a photo of a Canada Goose with Goslings and a Haiku. I have approved the design, and these will be available in the next few weeks.
Nature is my Muse
My full length book of poetry is now completely assembled and in the editing stage. I expect it to be ready for publication by the end of the year.
