Jackpot Island is based on the true story of John Caldwell, about whom I wrote travel articles. He sailed around the world, bought Palm Island in the Grenadines, fought off renegades, and played a part in helping the Marines during the Grenada invasion. Hey, that’s better than watching Gilligan on TV!
i am a fox with no home hunting without quarry or hunger
the need receding in time and distance until my world is cold in the vast void of forever
i will go out now and make a tent of sticks walk backward from the dying flame the furious blaze like passion ending
yet one ember will still burn without heat and return like a cold moon on my horizon
