Life is full of magic, if only we look first to what is within. We live in a world that tells us meaning, reality and happiness can be found if we look outside ourselves; this is not so, and these poems trace a journey from the freedom of youth, through the prisons of attempted conformity, back to the freedom of adult anarchy. There is no escaping alienation in this world - so be free of spirit.

Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.

Each poem in this collection of my poetry from the past forty years is like a picture frozen in time: a snapshot from my life. Sometimes my feelings surprise me and sometimes they confirm me. Often they make me laugh or cry...after all, I am just an ordinary guy. I feel privileged to share these impressions with you; moments both lost and found in my life.

Poetry is a place to meet. We all have a table here waiting for us. We talk, laugh, and metaphor our way through verse like intimate conversations. In our hands are the mugs matching the personalities wide and varied, they are our hearts. In them - filled to the brim - is our ink. This addictive fluid is drank slowly as we read or it's splashed down on paper. So sit and drink the ink with me.
