Where's your Quiet Place? Here's mine.

I love the wild, whether desert or forest, I'd sit and just watch, quietly, and wish everyone else could do the same. Listen to the soft sigh of the wind in the trees. The magic dance of the butterfly, as it flitters from leaf to leaf, and the bees in their hurry, buzzing about looking for pollen. I'd jump at the caw of the blackbird and whistle of the hawk. The leaf stirring scamper of the squirrel seeking nuts would blend with accusations of the bluejay.
The warning stamp of the deer as it tries to decide what kind of interloper I am in their wood. The soft splashing of the nearby stream would be almost drowned out by a flock of geese trying to find their way. Come, join me in my quiet place.

About Me

My childhood was spent growing up on a farm in the mountains of northern Pennsylvania. In those years I learned the lessons that would mold my character and moral center. In my teens I moved to a small city in southeastern PA. Like many teens I had my rebellion and found the futility of it. During my late teens I moved to central PA and in high school lost my heart to the girl who is now my wife. Presently I'm well into midlife and slowing rapidly. The things I used to do, I can't even remember. Married as 2021 for 46 years, we have a son, a daughter and five grandchildren. My son has two boys, my daughter three girls, I love irony! I am adding 2 great grandsons! I'm self-employed for most of 35 years in construction. Doing a project for a customer and getting their approval is wonderful and inspiring. I started writing when my children were younger. I did some stories for them and over time it became more of an interest. I now have four completed novels and several shorts and am working towards getting one or more published. One short has been published.
