My recently released indie book, The Sky, the Stable, and Spaces in Between, is a collection of my poetry, haiku, and photography.
"In this collection, the author/ photographer combines the creative imagery of haiku with photography to celebrate the beauty of the sky, explore the relationships between himself, horses, and other animals, while using poetry as a means to question the value of a materially complex and hurried life."

Seventeen Farms is home for my family, along with our horses, goats, ducks, chickens, cats, and honey bees. Seventeen Farms is also a home to various wildlife - deer, wild turkeys, and more. We do our best to live in harmony with nature, and with all who come here, including our friends.
I created this blog to write about my experiences here and my observations of life in general.
