Things that makes my mind go round

Want a quick peek at what makes my mind tick? Pictured here are just a few of the many influences on not just my world view, but also that have helped shape and inform the 100,000-some words that I have assembled to write my story. This list is but a scratch on the surface, and only touches on a few (though very important) literary works that just happened to be close at hand and willing to pose for a group photo. Not pictured are the many other albums, musicians, poets, activists, comedians, artists, scientists, family members, life experiences, philosophers, and philosophies that infuse my thoughts and motivate my creative endeavors.
