Robert Morrow is the author of the novel Ringing True, a poet, a blogger and nonfiction writer (published under another pseudonym). Robert is currently working on three books: one a novel set in San Francisco during the dot.com boom; a collection of essays on workplace reality; and a book of blank verse sonnets.

Under yet another nom de plume, he is a musician and songwriter for the alternative rock band Acoustic Disturbance. He is also a traveler, a lover and explorer of the human condition.

He grew up in Silicon Valley, spent a few years in the wine country of Sonoma, then finally landed in San Francisco, the place he considers his home town. Leaving San Francisco along with all the other artists who found the city too high-priced for its o

Review: What Happened by Hillary Clinton

What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton My rating: 5 of 5 stars Disclosure: When I did one of those Facebook quizzes at the start of the election cycle, I came out 95% compatible with Bernie Sanders; 65% with Hillary. The truth is I agree with a lot of Bernie’s ideas but find him completely lacking… Read more of this blog post »

“If you want to know what a truly healthy relationship is, it’s one where both people wake up every morning and say, “I choose to be with this person.”
Robert Morrow, Ringing True

“The most sublime act is to set another before you.”
William Blake

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.”
Anais Nin

“Too much and too long, we seem to have surrendered community excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things. Our gross national product...if we should judge the United States of America by that - counts air pollution and cigarette advertising, and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage. It counts special locks for our doors and the jails for those who break them. It counts the destruction of our redwoods and the loss of our natural wonder in chaotic sprawl. It counts napalm and the cost of a nuclear warhead, and armored cars for police who fight riots in our streets. It counts Whitman's rifle and Speck's knife, and the television programs which glorify violence in order to sell toys to our children.

Yet the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education, or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages; the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials. It measures neither our wit nor our courage; neither our wisdom nor our learning; neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country; it measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile. And it tells us everything about America except why we are proud that we are Americans.”
Robert F. Kennedy
