I never was one for poetry, but I started reading Ric's stuff several months ago. His poetry is inspired much of the time by current events. What I really like most about
him is his art work. He is known for his ability to draw art using a single pen stroke. That is never lifting the pen from the paper. He lives in beautiful Carmel, California. He has been battling advanced prostate cancer for ten years. He just stopped posting and his daughter is sending emails letting us know that he has approached his end game. I thank him for his inspirational work and willingness to let us reference him in our links, and his very detailed journey with cancer. If you haven't seen his work here is his website: www.ric-masten.net
Check his daily "Words and One Liner" and his Odyssey with PCa.
Thank you Ric!
