I have written about my work in
the past; and I've written verse to accompany many of
my pieces since the 1960's. Much of it is lost or has
never been made public. In the last few years I have
begun to include my writing with new work on my website.
I am also reflecting now on older pieces that I feel
can benefit from my explanations or the inclusion of
the verse or poem that I originally wrote to compliment
the ideas I was tackling. Some explanations are edited
originals from past years. Others are new or recollected
reflections on the meaning of older work. It has been
interesting for me to re-exam my motives and motivations
for pieces I did ten, twenty and thirty years ago. In
some ways I feel more open, now, and certainly more
willing to articulate my views.
This verbal initiative, is open to your comments. I
hope these writings stimulate response and I would love
to have your thoughts about my thoughts?

“Desert Storm", sounds like an epic
film, doesn't it?
It was a little war that began with a six month build
up and prelude in early autumn 1990.
