New Poetry Book and Huge Life Changes

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 27, 2014, 5:12 PM
Sweet Ether

a writer's paradise

Hello there friends & followers here on dA

Hope everyone is doing well and being productive in their respective creative arts.

The last year I have been mostly absent from here and that is because I now have a beautiful baby boy named Gavin Jude! The last thirteen months have been some of the most beautiful and most trying of my life, but I wouldn't take a single moment of it back.  The highs have certainly outweighed the lows.  As you can imagine, my internet time is limited and though I still write every day, I've found it impossible to keep up with deviations/journals/commenting or even updating my own deviations/page.  I've missed dA a lot and I miss so many of you and the connections we've gained into each others lives through art.  I will post some pictures of my son soon!

I have a new poetry book completed entitled: Sleeping Children Are Still Flying.  I uploaded the cover art already! It is forthcoming and will be available on Amazon. 

I hope I can reconnect with a lot of you!

  • Listening to: My son laughing
  • Reading: Daniel Dafoe- Robinson Crusoe
  • Drinking: Iced Coffee
