John Kulm

Biography

I've been called an outsider artist, a Jungian and a pseudo-Jungian. I like all those labels even if it's just persona. As an intuitive introvert, I'm reclusive and happiest alone working on creative projects.

I come out of my shell occasionally to do public readings. Some venues where I've read include these:
- The People's Poetry Gathering, Lower Manhattan
- The National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, Elko, NV
- Lollapalooza
- The Adelaide Fringe Festival, Australia
- The international Finn Fest
- The Impala, Los Angeles

A Silver Ring Crafted In World War II

A ring can be made from a coin by tapping with a spoon. That's what my father witnessed while guarding German POWs during World War II. He told me a story about that and I'm sharing it here. When my father died I was struck by the thought that when a man dies his stories die with him unless someone writes them down.

    Fun, humorous book that caught me early on and kept me scrolling the text to see where the story would go.

    The author is so adventurous and free spirited, she made the journey fun - like a very personal travelogue.
  • Blessed are the Introverts on Jan. 07, 2013

    Fun observations about differences between extroverts and introverts. I like that the text was short and a fast read. It was long enough to leave me thinking more about the topic.
