Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

 The National 9/11 Memorial, New York City, Pentagon 9/11 Memorial, and Flight 93 Memorial
illustrate my semiotic theory of iconic realism.

I wrote this poem the afternoon of September 11, 2001 in Danbury, CT, 65 miles north of the horror,  yet close enough to know that the same clouds passing above me just passed over the horror. The wispy clouds almost looked like angels floating above and away from the madness below. Silence… except for the industry of nature.

September 11, 2001

Bellowing clouds of madness
devour cavernous streets
filled with masses seeking freedom
from a spumous potion of death.

Silent plumes in an azure sky
Blessed
by the whispers of three thousand angels
newly formed, dancing
sweeten this visage of horror.

Delicate cricket chirps, gentle bird songs,
strong airy wings of a soaring bird
reveal the Love
that can never die.

Freedom prevails.
