Richard Alan is never wanting for a creative spark, whether writing his poetry and prose, teaching, performing as a singer/songwriter/bandleader, gifted instrumentalist, or using his unique vocal artistry and talent for making sound effects.
With a clever wit and joviality, he faces life’s difficulties with a smile while feeling the gambit of emotions. People who cross his path meet with optimism, kindness, and encouragement, even when he is in tears of pain, trial, or joy.
He is an eternal student with a childlike curiosity to understand the sciences, the arts, history, and all things in nature and space. Metaphysically, he is insightful, practiced in several disciplines, and knows there is much more to life than meets the eye.
He creates with an overflowing pallet of colors found in the catacombs of his mind where voices compete for attention. Add to that the experience from a 60+-year-old sojourner. As hippie, Christian, Wiccan, brother, biker, rocker, biker, husband, father, or grandpa, this storyteller churns out the unexpected through a multitude of genres.
The magical brew of imagination has never failed him and boils with multiplying fuel for the fire.
