Robert Nicholas


I was born in 1946 – the first year of the Baby Boomers. I lived in the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts most of my life – Pittsfield, Richmond and Lenox.

I graduated from the University of Mass in Amherst in 1968 with a BS in Mathematics. I did a two-year stint in the Peace Corps in the Philippines from 1968-1970 teaching high school modern mathematics. I later taught for eleven years and then became a computer programmer/analyst and eventually an MIS Director.

I currently winter in Florida and summer in upstate NY – with my 35 year old African Gray Parrot, Little Pete.

I enjoy playing piano and guitar as well as painting watercolors. The “watercolor” cityscape in my blog header was done on my iPad using a stylus. Check out the iPadArt page in the menu for the full version of this painting and others.

I started writing poetry when I was in my early teens. It has always brought me joy to express my emotions in writing. My poems tend to be quite straightforward. You won’t need a dictionary or an encyclopedia to comprehend them. I like my poems to flow easily, and have the reader flow with my thoughts.
