We regret to announce
That last Wednesday a funeral
Was held for language
The death certificate read: Of Causes Unknown
But we are sure that it died at the hands of ignorance.

They say it languished for years
And some thought it died of old age.
But the masters knew, the lovers of old books and beautiful words
Said it was neglect.

Flowers may be sent to the Library of Congress.

Earned a living at 35,000 feet, then, later, at sea level, now writing nonfiction books somewhere inbetween. What's cool about writing are the things that inspire me: music, near misses, film, the natural world, my yellow lab, Luna, literature and the people I meet in serendipidous ways. I'm not a great writer yet, but I'm working on it.
