A few decades ago, I was born in Ohio, raised in New York City. (I'm a southern boy by default. Daddy was born in Mississippi) I've traveled all over the world and along the way I've made and lost many friends. RIP guys. I founded a bar, wrote a few dozen books and took some mighty fine photographs along the way. My philosophy is live and let live, and if you can find a way to include me, all the better. I've loved and 'loved' thank you Goddess!

This site is dedicated to Jack H, Will B., Rob P, David M, Nathan R. and Raul M. you guys are the creme in my coffee.
