I write poetry and articles on art and ecology, the role of art in society, and the importance of natural systems and biodiversity in the physical and spiritual well-being of individuals, communities, and the planet. My poetry reflects these concerns.
It seems to me true that we protect what we feel affection for. My poetry is always an effort to find the beauty that compels affection.
From August of 2022 until 2024, I am serving as Poet Laureate of Sonoma County. The theme of my tenure is Being Brave. I look forward to that conversation. I hope much of it will be in poetry.
