PAPER QUILT/RED-WHITE-BLUE IS A COLLECTION OF MEMORIES OF MANY FRIENDS WHO HAVE DIED OF AIDS, BUT NOT ALL. PEOPLE I NOT ONLY KNEW BUT KNEW PRETTY WELL WHO (ONE HOPES) HAVE GONE ON TO A GREATER EXISTENCE. MANY OF (PERHAPS ALL) THESE PEOPLE HAD UNIQUE WAYS THAT WERE AS I SEE IT, VIBRANT. THIS IS AN ATTEMPT TO PORTRAY THEIR BEING, PROCLIVERTY, AND THE EXTENT IMPACT OF AIDS IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY.

CONVERSELY, THIS WORK – PAPER QUILT/RED-WHITE-BLUE – GIVES TRIBUTE, SHARES SADNESS AND FUTILE ACCEPTANCE. A SPIRIT OF KEEPING ON WITH LIFE.

About the author (2004)

The author has been a San Francisco Bay Area resident for the last thirty odd years.  A native of Texas whose rearing was rooted in a Roman Catholic Southwestern Middle-American continence.  A strong believer in justice, fairness and an unabashed pride in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights even when it (and its intent) is blindly, sordidly interpreted thereby compromising its purpose.

Besides writing the author loves to paint and read.  He has found great solace in reading works writings, especially history and has been mired in the Civil War for years:  Lincoln, Grant, Sherman and Sheridan are favorites.  Most selected reading material have been very rewarding and fundamentally educating.

This exposure has contributed to him keeping his life’s navigation mostly balanced.
