JOHN MUIR'S AUGUST HEAD
John Muir's queer and sundry quotations and exclamations shine through pane after pane of Yosemite Valley's buildings. Less a ghost and more of a sacred mascot, his bearded visage seems to hang down from every shaggy tree and to impose itself in the crinkled cliff-shadows on every side of this immense religious fosse into which tourists pour as amply as blood or wine. "How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountain!" "I never saw a discontented tree." "The mountains are calling, and I must go."

About the Author
Leaves float back up to the branch--
He runs the micro-publishing house BLAST PRESS, (http://gregglory.com/wordpress/posts/meet-me-in-botswana-what-is-blast-press/) which has published over two dozen authors in the past 25 years. Named in honor of the wild Vorticist venture by Ezra Pound and Wyndham Lewis, BLAST PRESS is forward-looking and very opinionated.
He still composes poems on his departed father's clipboard, which he's had since High School.
