  1. Good Greetings Chad! How nice to find you here… I really like your blog title, Deep End of the Sky, just right and look forward to anything you share. I am not very sophisticated with my blog site but enjoy posting some of my photos and poems… some you may have seen . All best as always, Tom


    • Hi Tom! Thanks for stopping by. I am new to blogging, and am still learning how it all works. I started the blog as a way to promote my new haiku collection The Deep End of the Sky (where the blog title comes from). Turtle Light Press will be publishing the book in late spring to early summer, in case you’re interested. Kindly, Chad


  2. I found my way here! (First blog I’ve ever commented on) Congratulations, Chad, the blog looks beautiful. I love your work and ‘The Deep End of the Sky’ is at the top of my wish list.

    all the best,


    • Hi Lorin!

      I’m glad you made it to my blog, and thanks for commenting! I hold your work in high esteem, so it would be an honor if one day a copy of my book had a place on your shelf. I hope you’ll stop by here again soon! Thanks, Lorin!
