I'm a yogi, musician and accountant living in Austin, Texas. I'm a seeker, as many of us who turn to poetry are, I would imagine. I'm not a trained poet, though I'm a firm believer in the power of the written word. Sometimes when linear processing can't capture everything that's swirling around in my head, my thoughts and emotions find their way into a poem. The philosophy of yoga will sometimes find its way into a poem as I'm working to process the deeper meanings of a particular concept. I mention that from a place of concern that some of what I write might come across as preachy or self-righteous. Know that I never intend that. I am human, and flawed, as much as the next person. In that humanity I hope to connect to other similarly flawed yet hopeful and aspirational souls through the power of our shared experiences.
Two toads sitting on a log One toad pushes the other in and chuckles to himself that he always wins The second toad surfaces with a satisfied smile happy to be in the water where he’d craved to be all the while
