One day the Universe blessed me with the reawakening of romantic love. I was thunderstruck from afar.
These collected poems and brief essays celebrate the restoration of my life. I was a single father for many years, and I devoted my life to my three children. I suffered some serious health issues due to immense stress.
With much soul-searching and long discussions with my marvelous kids, I left America and moved to China to be with the woman I love. I lived twenty percent of my life there before returning to the US. My time living in a foreign culture inspired my writing and changed me forever.
In China, at the Dean’s request, I created a Poetry Appreciation class for my university. I taught hundreds of students to love poetry and to write their own poetry. I was also the foreign editor and lead writer for a monthly magazine and weekly newspaper.
These poems capture the emotions of times of great change in my life. Love inspires all my writing. Love is the most powerful force in the Universe and that power restored my life to me.
