Published poetry locally; active ultramarathoner. Lived in Berkeley since 1976; originally from Southern California. Attended UC Riverside and UC Berkeley.
I attempt to understand my experience with the world and share this with like-minded people. I also read from the past to discover other writer's views on life.
Rilke, Flannery O'Connor, Franz Wright, Edmond Jabes, John Keats, James Wright, Charles Simic, many, many, others.
Hey Mike! Saw your name on the new users grid...terrific, glad you hopped on. Lots of storytellers here, but also some great poets....Darryl Price (above)is very active and writes wonderful verse...Sam Rasnake, Bill Yarrow...Susan Tepper, Gloria Mindock. And maybe you know fellow UC Berkeley denizen, Jane Hammons.
Welcome, Mike, from Jerry Ratch, fellow Berkeleyite, living in the Rockridge now.
