I write, speak, invest, network, and question to stimulate fruitful conversation. Let's talk about human flourishing! It begins with freedom. Holy leisure is the key to human being, freedom and generativity. Please join me in the adventure of realizing Christ!
A candle has a destiny to burn, that will not be fulfilled unless you light it!
I’ve spent years writing and collecting and writing about my poetry. Poems of mine have been published in St. Austin Review, Canticle, Gilbert and other magazines. I use some of my poems in retreats and workshops to start a conversation about the person as a poem, or about the way poetic thinking affects our interior freedom.
I’ve just published A Destiny to Burn, and each poem is linked to a recording.
Gerard Manley Hopkins said that poetry couldn’t be itself without being heard, so I hope you’ll get the book and have a listen. For several years I gathered friends in the Living Poem Society to recite and discuss our poetry. I hope to restart that someday.
Here are all the recordings for A Destiny to Burn, and if you click on the huge cover image, you’ll be able to buy a copy.
Thanks for your patronage of my art!
