Welcome to My Life in Metaphor, one man’s life experiences and views of life, death, and everything in between.
My writing reflects
growing up a part of two distinct, rich cultures;
training as a scientist and public health professional;
work and residence in three foreign countries – Brazil, Jordan and Ecuador;
a love of nature; and,
great respect for our country, but concern about a decline in our nation’s values – the growing hostility and intolerance, technology as a substitute for direct human contact, and excessive violence.
I hope you will enjoy my poetry, find it interesting and thought-provoking.
