Fairhope, Alabama - A place to call home, dream and fall in love...

In 1935, George Gershwin premiered the classical production of Porgy & Bess. Porgy and Bess tells the story of Porgy, a disabled black beggar living in the slums of Charleston, South Carolina. It deals with his attempts to rescue Bess from the clutches of Crown, her violent and possessive lover, and Sportin' Life, the drug dealer. It contains some of the most memorable and beloved music still wildly popular today. "I love you Porgy" and the inimitable,…

Passageways an Essay

To some a Dandelion is only a weed, but I have always thought them potent and lovely, so able to survive in even the toughest conditions. Beauty coupled with strength, is the most powerful combination. In that end for me the greatest love has never ever been about possession or control.

Leisure and Liberty

Oh my epicure

Who tastes food as

Some holy sacrament

The sounds you make as the steak

Rolls on your tongue are blasphemy.

Across from the dinner table

My spine shivers

In our vaulted ceilinged domicile

The sky so high

And Winter Park so long my home

Goodbye Eastside it’s good

To be here

I love the fat grey squirrels

And orange beaked finches

The papery rustle of…

Overdone metaphors

Stiff childlike canvases

Arrested development

Fading middle aged flower

Wilts stinks

Gone to seed menopausal--

Its genes die with it

Obscene scene is a playground

For these ageing children

With no progeny

No one to prove with fresh faces that they were once young too

A year of popularity does not immortality make

Darwin’s survival of the fittest
