William J. Karnowski is a construction worker by day and poet by night. His spirit is married to the earth. He worked as a laborer, a mason tender, finisher, gandydancer, therapy aide, boat builder, ironworker, draftsman, and now owns a construction company with his brother Dave.
I thought to myself,
"Self, if the geese can go south,
then, why can't we?"
It never did take me
very long to make a
decision, especially if
it involved a motorcycle.
Bill has traveled the length of the Oregon Trail, the Santa Fe Trail, and to the Great Smokies and back in the sports car that he built. He built his house, makes his furniture, and writes poetry on his farm at Laclede, Kansas.
"I find it is satisfying to get my hands and brain involved in everything I do."
"Check it out. I twist a few tails along the way."
