Some call me son, brother, godfather, cousin, uncle, writer, author, veteran, and friend. That may be true, but mostly I am me - a unique human being who has run the race of life through many different forests, down many roaring rivers and along some tangled paths. All in all it has been a good journey of growth and expansion of self. I am a lover of family, animals, food, laughs, poetry, books, compassionate people and chasing the light. My first journey into writing is Quiet Thoughts: Written Reflections. It is a book of poems and reflections - a small flicker of light into my life journey. I currently reside in Emmaus, PA and enjoy all that the Lehigh Valley has to offer.
