About Me

My favorite author the great Norman Maclean once said in his most recognized work, “My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him all good things-trout as well as eternal salvation-come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy.” (from A River Runs Through It – and Other Tales).  My nature has been to look to great art – and in that I mean primarily works of words – as a refuge and as a sort of seasoning for other great foods for my soul such as moments in Creation.  After stalling and waiting for far too long, I hope to capture here in my own words and art a bit of the grace that has so often surrounded me but has gone unsung.

I don’t pretend to be a great thinker, and those that know me best would tell you I enjoy a good and well-timed off-color turn of phrase.  The truth is, I hope to stir the virtual campfire here a bit and in that perhaps give someone something to think about.  More often than not, that person may be me.

I’m more than a few things…  a father, conservationist, hiker, canoeist, motorcyclist.  Some of these things will find their way here.  Others may as well.  If a consistent theme is your preferred flavor you may need to look elsewhere.

Be well…  Be blessed…
