Some personal stuff...(photo) Don Calderwood

  • Favorite authorHenry Miller, at the very top of my list - way up there. I have most everything he's ever written. Most, not all.

  • Favorite bookThe Wisdom of the Heart, by Henry Miller, and others by him. On Writing, the trilogy, etc.

  • Favorite quote - "Strange as it may seem today to say, the aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware."  Henry Miller, from an essay, "Creative Death".

  • Favorite Artist & Painting - many, but Edward Hopper is a star. Nighthawks is one sensational painting and favorite.

  • Favorite Illustrator - Maxfield Parrish - see below

  • Telling friends they should read - duh, Henry Miller...anything by him, with the possible exception of his first novels very early on. Tropic of Cancer was the start of his fame, but Tropic of Capricorn shines above. Don't confuse Henry with Arthur Miller, another great, because they are night and day.

  • Favorite poet - e.e. cummings (and, yes, lower case was his style). I also enjoy Beat poets immensely, but any good poem and poet will do.

  • Favorite food - 1. Mushroom ravioli; 2. Saganaki or Sazanaki (fried Kasseri, lemon, pepper, brandy or other liquor, flambe'ed at the table). Greek, 1968, invented in Chicago at the Parthenon.

  • Favorite color - I like them all and never had a true favorite but, if forced to choose, it would always be Parrish Blue.

  • Favorite movies of all time - Chinatown, Casablanca

  • Favorite music and song - Rock, jazz, pop, classical... eclectic. Personally, nothing beats At Last by Etta James. How about George Gershwin? Wonderful. Modern pop, too. Adele, etc.

  • Light of his life - my two children, for starters.

     2003 Honorable Mention, Poetry Competition, for the poem, An American Indian, performed at Lakeland Community College, published in the Lakeland Forum

  • Would love to live in... Montreal or Quebec City or Paris. I think. Maybe. Mexico, depending upon where, again "maybe," or possibly Costa Rica. Not sure. It changes.

  • Most interesting place ever lived in (so far):  Mexico City, D.F.

  • He is thrilled when... poems are born.

  • Someday... a major work in publication beyond what I've done.

  • Other stuff... If you haven't read Henry Miller - not Arthur Miller, also good in the extreme - you've missed one of the top twenty writers or authors of the 20th century, terribly relevant today.

  • Originally from... a city in Western Pennsylvania P G H
