As James McMurtry said “I’m not from here, I just live here”
I came out of the one and only Dodge City, Kansas then slowely
drifted southward to resettle in Oklahoma and eventually to central
Texas after a brief life in Ruidoso, NM. I can describe
my personality in two words: Perfect Melancholy. I like
producing music on the computer and strumming guitars
when I’m not wasting my free time. I envy avid readers
who soak in every word. They have inspired me to purchase a
few books. Hopefully, one day I will read them.
