Head out into the world of cosmic and cryptic poems and prose. As well as being a wordsmith by nature, a varied life has contributed to Roger’s inspiration. Growing up in the Seattle area, four years in a co-ed private Quaker boarding high school in Pennsylvania, the psychedelic 60’s and the earthy 70’s in western Washington state, a cosmic 80’s in Santa Cruz, California, and traveling and living in Europe have provided fertile grounds for this collection of creative writings and poetry.Money for Art:Buying this book, I’ll tell you right now, is good for your health. / Though it may seem, on the surface, to compromise your wealth. / This book you can open, and read and reread, whatever you find. / You’ll get a new meaning, with each day’s new light, and that’s good for your mind. / A penny saved, is a penny earned, so they’ve always told you. / But listen carefully, to what I say to you now, and you’ll know it rings true. / Reading the words in this book, is like a walk in the woods, and good for your heart. / And spending those pennies, will free your soul, if spent to buy art.
