"A Man Living Apart From His World" 

(5/22/2022) Howdy! Working on the site. Having some trouble with loading stuff (like pictures on) and editing.        

Site been dormant for all intents & purposes for a while.

I am going to be (1) adding artwork (as soon as I have it copyright protected), (2) changing some of the entries

& (3) adding some entries from my Magnum Opus, Part I (c). And some discussion of that work

- plus Parts II & III to follow.

What I call my “professional writing” I cannot include here. Not for public view.

Lot of art work submitted for copyright - paintings, photographic work, etc.

About drove myself insane with the Magnum Opus, Part I - got a good comment or two about it. One reviewer said major literary work quality, another thought "cathertic."

A few other positive comments - and some consideration that I was too tough on me and not enough on her.

Still read parts at times - get lost in the story, the woman I loved so much and what I did which cost me her.

The “Magnum Opus” - for family & friends . Some asked over the years (primarily two) questions. Was difficult to finish. Hurt in some ways, felt good in others. I tried to be fair & complete. Maybe I succeeded. The “Magnum Opus” is not intended for publication I am copyrighting it so be able to use bits & pieces from it elsewhere.

  Once I get Parts II & III reviewed & copyrighted I will turn my attention fully to other projects. 

I hope those who see & read my “Magnum Opus”  will think I did not waste the 7 or 8 years i devoted to it. I am going to include two or three excerpts here in for your viewing. Give one a feel for what I wrote.   

The price of a hardbound copy of my book "A Man Living Apart from His World" is $10. 

My "compilaiton of Poems (in folio) is $6. 

If you want to talk about a book, poetry, artwork or whatever contact me - best way is write me at PO BOX 5902 Arlington Texas 76005-5902. 

  Constantly working on a whole myriad of projects. I tend not to get much done. Must be lazy...
