THE WRITER, THE READER, AND THE ARCHITECT | December 31, 2007

This is a book with a sibling twist created by three twisted siblings.  Me, the unpublished writer hung up on the past, and my two brothers, one an alcoholic architect without hope or a job, the other a businessman with blood clots and a book fetish.  Together we lead mostly mundane lives working drudge jobs – half lives already half over, our collective talents destined for the crematory. 

Oh, the waste.

We would not be the first in our family to take our passions into the fire.   We come from a long line of people who turned a deaf ear to their creative callings.  An aunt who sculpted in the basement, a grandmother who painted water colors on the porch, a father who played piano, a mother who sketched boats from the shore.  Surely, the sheer volume of our collective artistic entry would equate to something.  This book seeks to make something tangible of that.  More important, though, it begins to pave a path of courage and conviction for those who will lead our family into the future…

The poet, the decorator and the coronet player, ages 19, 15 and 9. 

Enjoy.
