A Special Announcement: The Owl is About to Arrive

Here I present to you an ultrasound of my new baby, the draft copy of the cover for my new book to be released in a few weeks. It would be one of the longest gestations ever if this were a human baby. But the book has gone through a long evolutionary journey, not unlike its protagonist.

Watch this space because once the particulars have been finished, a special pre-publication offer will be made to any visitors to this site. To be among the first to hear of this special offer, ...

Hickenlooper Concerned with Flatulence and Climate Change

Hickenlooper Concerned with Flatulence and Climate Change

The following was posted a few weeks ago. But now that Hickenlooper has dropped out of the presidential race who will take up the flatulence cause? 

Recently John Hickenlooper, former Colorado Governor, was in Iowa as he campaigns for the democrat nomination for president. In a press conference, he brought up the decades old contention that one of the culprits for (take your pick) is methane as a significant green house gas, specifically cow flatulence. I would like to ...

“Puzzle Posed by a Rainbow”

Puzzle Posed by a Rainbow


One of life’s greatest puzzles is how two
can walk a beach together and change the sky,
make appear a spectrum across the blue
Yet leave not a trace for a passerby
no tracks in the sand beyond the next tide
yet leave such deep marks on each other’s heart.
Deep memories that leave them satisfied or build a yearning for new ones to start Them on the path to the rest of their lives.

” ’41 Plymouth”



’41 Plymouth

Searching for a book, my eye wandered
to the shelf below old time radio,
long unlistened to episodes on tape –
The Shadow, The Great Gildersleeve, Red Skelton –
where the forty-one Plymouth model is parked, 
true treasure of my diecast collection,
but for the black twin’s missing right headlight
When, I wondered, did that happen, and how?
Was it the victim of a hit and run
by my grandson’s rough taboo make-believe?
Defaced perhaps in a hurried dusting?
Or my own careless photo shooting practice?

My mind shifted into ...

New Shots of Wild Horses

A Pilgrimage to Israel

I recently had the great good fortune to travel to Israel where I not only snapped all the memory jogging pictures I could but also tried to capture as many images as I could of scenes and objects that lent themselves to more artistic rendering than travel snapshots can. When I make pictures I strive to depict the beauty that God has built into his creation because that is the reality of his creation. It is appropriate sometimes, however, to also show a not so beautiful side of the world. That ...

Lucian Wurhmwuhd returns, sort of

Finally after all these weeks I am able to make the big announcement I’ve promised. When I originally posted that a big announcement would be coming soon, I thought I had all the Ts crossed and the I’s dotted; but as it turned out I made my promise prematurely.  You can rest assured that I have been working behind the scenes to bring off a major coup, at least in terms of who it involves.

I have been in negotiations with my old friend Lucian Wurhmwuhd to make available again his ...
