New Gardening Magazine

Following our 4,500 mile road trip from Detroit to Mukuntuweap National Monument in Utah, Susan and I had decided:  it was time to combine our love for gardens, art, and travel into a new magazine. Our conversation had started during the shoot for the 2017 October issue of Gothic Girl Art Magazine, which is set in Susan’s…

Quiet

Fire your bombs, blast them into the hot night Death’s a brief transition, gruesome he’d say; Dissolve your fears, in the misty dawn’s light Long years he schemed, a learned man sans delight Before living for two taught him the way Fire your bombs, blast them into the hot night Noble beginnings, his story burned…

Projecting | Yourself

One of the interesting things about writing a book or music and then making the work available to everyone is the reader’s or listener’s feedback. One of my professor’s hated when I used the word “interesting” in a discussion because it didn’t tell him much about my viewpoint, which is what he was looking for…

George Libertiny | Numbers

There are many numbers that describe a person’s life.  And their death. On May 17, my father sat in a small room with my mother laughing at one of their many inside jokes.  Twenty-four hours later, he was dead. Death. Everything about that word sounds brutal. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. Make it politically correct.…
