    Jimbo, great to see! I checked out the website, and there's a very apt review on the front page: “A fresh voice from the forests to the city pavement in Minnesota. James Marshall Goff brings a sweet sounding style, best read aloud, quite intimate, poetic journey in many forms, describing his universe, close by....and far away.” Clicked on the link for your bio notes, and read how you're a southpaw....now it all makes sense :D~Whenever I learn that a strong writer, artist, musician or even an athelete, is left-handed, I think to myself, "Of course, of course, now it all makes sense!" ha ha!
