About Howard Wells

Dr. Howard Wells was born in 1921 in a remote mountain village in Lesutho. He was educated in South Africa, and saw active military service in WW2 in Italy. He has worked as a Mining Engineer, an international mining and management consultant, a farmer, a contractor in the field of shaft sinking and tunneling, and as an educator. He immigrated to the USA in 1977 to join the faculty of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. He retired in 1986 as Professor Emeritus of Mining Engineering; in 1992 he moved with his wife to his present residence in Florida,where he has happily pursued his hobbies of painting in water colors and oils, and writing poetry about matters that are perhaps more relevant in Golden Years than in the earlier days of earning a living.

Reviews

Review by: mcrawford on Aug. 16, 2011 : (no rating)
Howard Wells' Musings is a delightful collection of poetic reveries, on living well, on happiness, on nature, on family, on beauty, on love. The reader is transported to the author's surroundings on Alligator Creek in Florida, and comes away with a deepened appreciation of the joys of aging, with its rich array of memories and sharper sense of what is important in life.

Have enjoyed Howard's poems. I can picture the scene so clearly. He writes so serenly - his personality comes through clearly.
