Poetry on my Mind


"Poetry on my Mind" is a lifetime of wisdom and adventure wrapped into one pocket size poem book.  Whether the subject is love, realization or faith you will find yourself turning the pages, memorized by Tom's ability to capture a moment in life and make it dance with rhythm across the paper.  Every part, meticulously calculated down to a 'non-traditionally' spelled word will have you joyfully piecing together this twist on life, through the lens of a global minded author.

Poetry on my Mind: Work


Through my faith and travels and in my many roles as spouse, father and grandfather, faculty member, university administrator, private practice, private business owner, volunteer, through sports and through my diverse hobbies and interests and adventures in life, I have had the privilege of meeting, sometimes becoming personal friends with, many interesting and accomplished persons.  My parents gave me life and launched me into independence. I have been blessed by a truly beautiful and remarkable wife who has stuck by my craziness and travels and shared my journey. She is my compass, my rock.  When the dust clears, she is my best friend. My three children, Kevin, Brian and Erin, have careers, have followed their passions and become their own persons. They have found wonderful mates in life and have given me the joy of eight uniquely grand, grandchildren, who are the reason for my existence.   I continue to enjoy life and the continuing learning it brings to enhance my understanding of who I really am.

I thank you all.

“Such is Life, Such is Being, Such is Spirit, Such is Love.” - JD (Aspen, circa 1990)

I like the unique style, broad topics and the insight and happiness between the lines. I especially appreciated the “Author’s Notes” section!
