This book is dedicated to my wife, my children, and the soldiers with whom I served.
The author is a California native and Georgia resident who writes sonnets as a source of thought clarification. As a contradiction to poetry, his day job consists of applied mathematics, information management, history, analytics, and military science.
This book represents a sample of the author’s thought clarification. Somber, crazy, joyful, or eclectic in subjects, the sonnet format provides a steady bedrock of expression. Some subjects are deep, some barely scratching the surface, some trying to resolve a conundrum, some a passing whim. All start with a single word or phrase with no end-state in mind until the poem is done.
