Born in south Louisiana quite a number of years ago, I lived in St. Mary Parish until I was six years old, then moved to deep south Texas.  I attended elementary school there until the beginning of the eight grade then finished eight grade in Louisiana, then back to Texas until the beginning of the 10th grade, then back to Louisiana, where I finished high school.  After a short time in college, I joined the Air Force, went through a lengthy tech school, then spent 2 years in Germany and about the same amount of time in far northeastern coastal Turkey.  While in the Air Force, I attended additional training/college programs (which continued after I left the service).....I have since lived in south Louisiana, including New Orleans (rather briefly), Houston, Bryan (Tx), short stints in southern California and in New York City, back in south Louisiana, and in south Texas and northern Mexico, where I have lived and worked (in Texas and in Mexico) continuously for the last 45+ years.......I am currently retired and enjoying (?) pursuing interests that I had neglected for a long time.....

Just a comment to advise that I have recently revised many of my poems (all still posted as previously) -- the revisions include quite a lot of line rearrangements, and some  wording changes as well as a few punctuation changes.  I hope some readers will revisit any poems they previously read and will leave me a few encouraging and/or informative comments, as I could use a little boost now to inspire me to invest more time in producing and reading additional poetry.  Many thanks!

Leo, I like to do that too, especially the real old ones and I am always amazed at how much I have grown as a writer _Constance

Date: 8/18/2020 1:40:00 PM time goes on we all change, as does our taste/thought process, and it is advisable and (probably) good that we sometimes have the opportunity to revise at least a little some of the things we wrote in ways different from how we would write them now. Thanks for reading (and keep changing/revising as you like)....

Hi, Leo. I’ve read several of your poems starting with the earliest submitted to PS. I notice too that you have quite a few audio files uploaded with what I assume is you reading the poems. That took a lot of work, especially with your revisions as outlined above. I like your writing style, so I’ll be reading more :) ~Mark

Thank you very much Mark. Yes, that is me reading the earlier versions of many of the poems (I will not try to update the audio versions since most of the changes I have made have been relatively minor, i.e. line arrangements, punctuation, and a wording change here and there.) Thank you for visiting them and for your comment. I will try to visit yours.
