Nature, interactions with people,art and teaching make my life purposeful, including mentoring Bridgeport school children.
An excerpt from my poem "Depending on Light":
On the most overcast of days
it skims the water
or remains a steady sheen.
A serenity one tries to assume,
the clouds kind in summer,
patient in winter.
