I am an ex-Air Force NCO and I retired from Travis County Juvenile Detention Center on July 31, 2016 after 23.8 years.

I was a Juvenile Detention Shift Supervisor from September 2013 until retirement.

Writing has always been an enjoyable form of expression and my goal is to publish my first volume of poetry in 2016.

I also intend to write more once settled into my retirement.

Nottoway: Hello, Poetry Friends!

I have been without regular computer access for a while. But, I am almost up and running again. Hopefully, I will also be over my writing slump.

I do hope everyone is well.

Nottoway: I will still be posting poems this year but I will also be writing short stories about my years as a United States Air Force Security Policeman (Law Enforcement). I hope everyone will find them interesting. They are some of the events that have stayed with me even 20-30 years later. Have a good day everyone. If you are in the winter environments, stay safe.

Nottoway: My deepest sympathies to all those in Oklahoma, North Texas, the Eastern US and other places around the world who have recently suffered through such terrible events.

Nottoway: May the onset of Spring bring a certain amount of rejuvenation to everyone's spirit. For those areas about to enter the autumnal season toward winter, may there be a slowing of the beat.

Nottoway: A question was asked a while back if some of my writings are things that acually happened. Yes. Unless, I specifically state though which are, I leave to your imagination to ponder. Thank you all for liking the posts and thanks for any and all suggestions.

Nottoway: I have been writing periodically for over 40 years. During the 1 month that I have been posting on FanStory, I have gotten some of the best feedback ever. I am encouraged and inspired.
September 12, 2012 at 1:52PM

Nottoway: I joined FanStory August 12 and have posted several poems. I really appreciate the comments received. I have also done one writing challenge.

Most importantly, I am inspired to write more.

Thank you.

Nottoway: September 2 marks the 6th anniversary of a major health crisis in my life. Some of my writings that will be posted as time goes will reflect this event. I have so far had a very good recovery and I am doing well.
