I fell in love, only for the second time in my life, and I married the woman after knowing her only a few months. That woman is Naila Moon, of the Gray Wolf. She has helped me find the passion that I had lost, nearly 8 years before.
I am writing again, rediscovering my model building, and photography, and I am moving forward with taking risks in fining a better job, after keeping my current job for over two years, and we are looking at moving to Missouri in the next year.
I am learning to drive, and get a license and I am not allowing fear to cloud my mind. I am alive and passionate about life again.

Day 19 A Talent I have
I am talented as both a writer of fiction and poetry, as a photographer and as a scale model builder.
I discovered my ability as poet only with-in the past 17 years, I had never written poetry until 1993, when I met a young woman, who brougt out the poet in me. I have written romantic poetry, political poetry, and poetry that is about my life since 1993.
Sunrise In Sherwood
Silence as the cool water goes its’ way,
The first chirps of birds,
the hoof beat of deer at the break of day
The dark night makes a last attempt to remain
But the Orange, gold and yellow of the sun sings a new refrain
In the silence there is a stirring, as little john and Friar Tuck awaken
Yet they move about quietly as if not to disturb she who rests in
Such wonder and beauty.
I stand and watch you from a distance, and yet it is as if I still hold you near.
The sun begins to warm the land and a cold winter mist
Rises from the cool forest, yet it as if m’ lady is being kissed.
For the mist rises from your lips in soft cushions of air
Yet like an unskilled lad all I do is stand and stare.
Finally you rise and I see the gentle love in your eyes.
I wonder if you knew that I stood and watched you
Sleep like a child?
Touched by the air ever mild
But it is just another sunrise here in Sherwood Forest for all to see.
Yet I dream of a day when you Lady Marian and I Robin of Loxleigh
Will be free to love each other openly and honestly.
Poem from the unpublished book Legends written November 15 1993 rewritten September 19.1999.
I have been into photography since I was about eight years old, and have used everything from a 35mm camera to a 110, to my Kodak digital camera.

|Me on my birthday 1973.|
My father opened the door for me, as a scale mode builder. On weekends, we would go to the local hobby shops, and get the latest MPC kit and build it. After my dads death in 1974, I began to really expand in the area of my model building and started to do the detail work, of painting the pilots and guns and other parts. I now take weeks, if not months in building a model, keeping this talent alive, and one I intend on sharing with my grand daughter when she is older.
