I love to work with words. They can be so powerful in sharing ideas across cultures and the world and yet so powerless to express even the simplest sentiment.
I work with words in my professional career as a researcher. Here I enjoy working with them in much more open ways through poetry.
I also write songs. My other enjoyment is music. I play a variety of instruments – none to with any great expertise. What I enjoy is the pleasure of the sound. The taste and vibration of the clarinet in my mouth – the resonance of a guitar on my knee. All of which is another way of communicating across boundaries.
My writing is here for you to enjoy. Please let me know your thoughts. Comments are very much appreciated.
