What I have written

Over my life so far I have written a wide variety of material, from the rustic poetry of my youth in Northern California, on through the more experimental writings as a student in Berkeley, and then, finally, the more seasoned writings that came after my return to a Sonoma County much changed from my childhood there. What follow below are links to a few of these.
