These poems and paintings explore our relationship to nature and the nature of our place in it. Not just any relationship, not just any place, but rooted here along the banks of Warwoman Creek in the North Georgia Mountains where I am trying, with all my heart, to come home to. It's all a great river, and my hope is to meet you there.

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER: Poems & Paintings

These poems and paintings offer something special - bringing together for the ear, the eye, and the imagination - the breaching of morning light, the call of the Red-Tailed Hawk, and the dreams that weave through our vision. It's all a great river. I'll meet you there.

Poems and paintings - they share something important - a concentrated form of paying attention - paying attention to what is! Paintings are still and yet move in our minds, thoughts, and feelings. Poems are always moving in our minds, our thoughts, our feelings, and yet they form pooling echoes of the still and eternal present. Paintings and poems, two sides of one bright coin, tumbling in a great river. I'll meet you there
