About the Book
The poems in this book are mostly recent, although some of them were written over the period of the past ten years. All of the artwork in this book, Thought Broadcasting, is current. The artwork displays the different skills I have as an artist, which are painting, drawing, decoupage, collage, photography, and digital artwork. Creativity and self-expression has helped me to find a life for myself that I enjoy and can share with others. My artwork has been exhibited in galleries and have been sold. I hope that through reading my works, people can learn how creativity can bring joy to one’s heart, soul, and spirits and also to the lives of others. I have published three other books, which are Take Five Seroquel and Call Me in the Morning, Far Out, and Time Lapse.
