Thanks to everyone who made Upstream a success!

This was a great event, bringing together hundreds of bands, sponsors, art, performers, culture and artists to raise money for arts and culture in Seattle.

I want to thank everyone from the Seattle Sounders to Bold Hat productions for all that they have organized and contributed.  Thanks to everyone for all that they contributed to this great event and I look forward to participating in this again next year!

Now on, a sinister sale on my seethingly dark tales:

I usually write novels, but today I wrote a poem. I hope you like it!


The hierarchy of nature seems

In nature and in life to be

Run by a conductor unseen

And in many ways it is me

(As if by some magic or simony).

When the unseen hand changes the tide

And sets the sun below the sky

And all of nature returns to hide

And the Zephyr in the breezes sighs;

Reminds me that within my life

Whether in my sports or my child

Either in the classroom or the type

I direct the events in the books I write.

Though many things I can’t control

With each storm and wave I roll

Yet when the chance comes to my soul

I direct the chimes the bell tolls.

Knowing what and what not to do

When I can rest and when to move

Is a gift not many can prove

To have and yet I surely do!

We spent the day at the Art Museum in downtown Seattle.

It was a wonderful, sunny day down by the ocean in downtown Seattle.  The food and drink were tantalizing, the sun on the water was mesmerizing, and the art was edifying!  The exhibit of many Flemish and Dutch Masters painters were on display including originals by Rembrandt!  He is one of my favorite Dutch painters and has the best first name!  I also love Vermeer and it was inspirational, as an artist myself, to see the originals up close and first hand, in person.  It reminded me of my novel, “The Dutch Muse,” that I wrote years ago.

After the museum we tooled around town enjoyed the market, where we watched them throw the fish!  Then we had an awesome dinner at Gordon Biersch and were exhilarated as we walked about and took in the sea air.  It was a wonderful day.

I am weary of this planet…

I long to find another place, somewhere higher!  I feel like Beethoven, Rembrandt (which, by the way, is his first name) and Eddie Allen Poe!  I feel that my fellow-man does not understand my genius and talent.  That my fellow dwellers here on earth do not appreciate my insight and vision.  But I don’t want to end up dying penniless like my fellow three great artists I mentioned above.  I don’t want to wait until my dotage like Tolkien, or even until after my death, to be rich and famous for my art.  I want to be loved and understood now, here!

People are so angry and rude to each other.  Everyone is oblivious of their fellow-man and are greedy, suing for everything, while the prices go through the ceiling and the quantity and service goes down through the floor.  Even now in this Spring the clouds are heavy and the rain pours down.  The sun has not shown his head for many days and I am weary.  I want to find warmth and inspiration again.  I want to feel exhilarated and know that this life is worth living and to discover new hope…
