Also follow me on:

I'm an artist, a poet, a bit of a philosopher. I'm a trained cook/chef, whatever, but don't work in the industry anymore, too stressful. I ride my bicycle just about everywhere I can. In fact, at 61 I've never owned a car. I did finally get a drivers licence a few years back and rent them occasionally on vacations. I lost some weight a couple years back [50lbs] and took up weight training in the process. I'm in the best shape of my life and having a great time at it. I just love doing it, pushing myself, lifting more weight as I can. I'm here to share some of my poetry with the world.

I do assemblages of objects in the forms of faces which I have been displaying locally this past year and selling some. I tried to sell on etsey but didn't sell, so I lost interested there.

I now have a blog at rkane3.wordpress.com but I post rarely.
