I had the great pleasure and opportunity to work with the poetry of George Elliott Clarke earlier this year. Lasso the Wind: Aurélia's Verses and Other Poems will be out this fall.  Here are several illustrations... a bit of a preview!
On March 25, my father, George Harold Tooke died.  I haven't posted since then, but have continued to create.  Here is a photo of my father and mother, Esther Van Schoick at their home in Colombia shortly after they married in 1944.  Mom was an operating room nurse and Dad an accountant.  I miss them both every day.
