Dear David,
You probably don't remember me, but I was the older guy drinking lavender tea at the Good Cup in Santa Barbara four years ago. I recognized you right away. You stood at the counter with your long, white balding hair and walrus-style mustache. You were wearing a T-shirt and had black suspenders. You were taller than I imagined, like a giant Yoda.

--Excerpt from A Goodbye Letter to David Crosby.

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

    That was a great letter.

  2. Wow! And he was connected in so many different ways to others. I know he’ll be missed. Thank you for saying what we all felt.
