    • I am a writer and storyteller. Writing and storytelling stories have always been my strong point in whatever I do or have done. So, now I am seeking to make them the focus, rather than the side or support. This includes all kinds of work related to history, which is, after all, THE story....

          The Seven Pillars of Wisdom - T. E. Lawrence
          Childhood's End - Arthur C. Clarke
          Walden - Henry D. Thoreau

        • Mozart
          Jackson Browne

        • "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live! Methinks that the moment my legs begin to move my thoughts begin to flow--as if I had given vent to the stream at the lower end and consequently new fountains flowed into it at the upper. A thousand rills which have their rise in the sources of thought--burst forth and fertilize my brain you need to increase the draught below-as the owners of meadows on C. river say of the Billerica Dam. Only while we are in action is the circulation perfect. The writing which consists with habitual sitting is mechanical wooden dull to read." -Henry D. Thoreau
