Quote Left When I was very, very young I learned how to tie my shoes in a double knot, really tight, but I couldn't untie them. I tried and tried but to no avail. I was stubborn and didn't want to ask for help, but eventually I had to ask my Mom or Dad to help me. And they did. Makes you wonder who's going to untie the hard knots that mankind's responsible for? Quote Right

Happily married for over 45 years, having raised 2 sons, both married to girls named Carla.  Go figure. :) 

Come visit my website when you have the time.

I just started posting on Instagram.  Check it out!

"Glass is Empty" is my avatar.  It reflects a play on words with my initials, as "Empty" becomes "MT" for my name.  The glass represents my transparently fragile creative process.  The glass begins to fill as I struggle through the process of writing, becoming full when I (finally!) complete a short story or poem.  After publishing the work, the glass becomes empty again, awaiting new inspiration.  Empty or full, the glass is always "MT" :)
