I am a person with some very strong opinions, one who enjoys sharing them for better or for worse. I am a liberal American of Irish and English heritage who has travelled extensively through Europe and who has lived in various locations in the United States. I believe in socialized education and medicine for those who accept help. I also believe inpublic and private schools, freedom of speech, civil rights, human rights, family rights and democracy. I write in three genres: poetry, fiction and non-fiction. I sell abstract drawings that relate to my poems online. I believe in respecting one another and living peacefully and debt free with liberty.
