I am the younger of two

I am a farm boy at heart
I am an urban greenery in practice

I have known great loss,

I find contradictions sexy
I crave more order

I think HIV is a scourge

Our sacred duty is to determine which

    1. Doll! I’m so happy to hear from you! We are locked down in Palm Springs but there are SO many worse places we could be. All well and as healthy as old farts can be these days. robby@wuzzle.com robbysherwin on FB. Thanks for dropping in! I just published a new piece on this whole situation: Grateful Is Boring Hugs!

  2. You are an excellent writer! Keep up the great work!

    So refreshing to read your piece.
