    Around, Up and Down

    Having ridden many roller coasters, I've felt the thrill of going up the initial incline and the chill when the coaster drops. These rides are part the Fair's fun.

    I've designed machines and appreciate how they operate. My mechanical engineering background made me aware that when you look at a roller coaster, a machine, you can see the workings of it, its construction, the steel work, the supports. The rider becomes part of its operation.

    This was my first attempt as a poet/writer, so these thoughts and a touch of beginner's luck are what make up my artistic process.
