Salty, Peaceable & Deep: The Pacific

Welcome to The Pacific, a digital domain for peaceable, broadly liberal opinion and poetry, “political ditties” (didactic meter and rhyme) and prose satire. Founded in March of 2017. (Similar posts from a previous blog have been included.)

“The Pacific” as title suggests both the fact and beauty of the actual ocean–near where I lived for a few years and still occasionally spend enjoyable time with my wife and daughter–and the “pacific” of peace and peaceable relations.

Imaginary contributors:

Rumple Oxbridge, liberal lyricist

Riverboat Sam, technical specialist/digital skeptic

T.S. Swanky, a confused conservative

I am a poet and essayist currently residing on the Western Coast of Lake Michigan and published in various literary publications, newspapers, and magazines, including The Progressive and the anthology Paumanok: Poems and Pictures of Long Island. 2009 winner of Milwaukee Press Club “Excellence in Wisconsin Journalism” award for Best Business Story or Series– “King Coal” published in Milwaukee Magazine.

I take photographs, too, and many will appear at The Pacific. The header photograph is one of mine: “Point Lobos, Winter Day.”
