CRYSTALLIZED REMNANTS and I am honored to have been asked to write the Foreword for this special book.
I met Robert--or, Bob, as I call him--several years ago during a memorable but grueling 10-mile hike down into Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon. We became fast friends and immediately bonded over hiking, words, photography, and weird senses of humor. You can really get to know people when you strip away all the creature comforts. Plus, throw in an out-of-nowhere monsoon and 100-degree temperatures and you've got the makings of a solid friendship.
Anyway, each of Bob's poems in his collection are a little bit different but each one has a tendency to press an emotional button. One of my favorites is this one. Enjoy!:
