Bob Casey is a poet, freelance writer, professional photographer, educator, speaker, tai chi instructor, and publisher. More importantly, he is a seeker. He sees life as an adventurous journey with innumerable lessons to be learned along the way. From everyday experiences to the special life-changing ones, all impact who we are and whom we will become. His poetry and writing often focus on these life events.
He spent much of his professional life in Ohio as an educator, consultant, educational reformer, and now a professional writer, photographer, and tai chi instructor. He has sailed, cycled, hiked, and traveled extensively throughout the world. A favorite memory is the year spent in New Zealand on a teaching Fulbright. Later, his first book, The Wanderer: A Poetical Journey (2002) focused on his around the world trip and the insights gained. His second and third books, Wisdom from the Journey (2004) and An Oasis in a Cluttered World (2006) were a compilation of poems, vignettes, and recommendations from the Poetical Journal, an Internet newsletter that is published monthly for thousands of subscribers residing in all fifty states and seventy-two countries. Bob also has poems, photography, and articles published in anthologies and magazines. Two of his photographs taken in the Cascade Gardens in Banff recently appeared in Better Homes and Gardens.
“Poet Bob,” as his car license plate declares, is a past-president of the Ohio Poetry Association and a founding members of the Apple Valley Poets, a small group of outstanding poets residing in north central Ohio.
Bob currently resides in Fredericktown, Ohio. For more information about Bob, visit one of his websites, www.poeticaljourneys.com, www.journeyspublishing.com, or www.journey4healthnow.com.
