I am a 50+ year old, married, veteran.
I probably haven't been through any more than other people. But I like to think I have paid attention to it a little more. I have "felt" the things that happened to me. I am a romantic at heart. I am pleased with most things I have done in my life. I am happy when I reflect on them. I think people do things for reasons, outside of normal reaction. I like to ponder on those reasons.
James Thurber. Edgar Allen Poe. Stephen King. S.E. Hinton was the first author who I really liked.

thank you so much for the double WOW for Fairy Tale in Dachau. It was much appreciated.
Yes, this is dark. You are correct. I suppose that going through four wars and see my friend and family killed had caused me to write kind of dark poems and stories. Thank you for commenting. This is my first post on this site.
Thanks for your funny comment on There's Going to be a Test at the End. Did you pass it?
