I love when what I write makes sense to others and helps them to understand a new concept, truth or emotion that they may not have understood before. I love when I can talk with readers and hear their personal reactions and perceptions of something I've written -- how it's touched them, in positive or negative ways, as it helps me get to know that person better and gives clarity as to how my writing is interpreted. I love the English language and how words can touch others.(less)

“Life happens so fast. I woke up a young man, at lunch I was middle aged, and by dinner I could imagine my own death. I long ago finished my wine, ale, and hors d'oeuvres, the main course was mostly a grand feast. Coffee has been served, and I hope for one last, sweet taste of dessert.”
