I feel that this is a unique book of poetry, because it takes the reader on a journey of the Heroic Poet Errant. Like a wandering knight, the Poet falls into the pits of despair, crawls out, and gains a truer, more affirmed sense of Self. Spin The Wheel was written at a time when I believed that life was "suffering." As stated in the "Four Noble Truths" of the Buddhist Dharma, the truth of "Dukha" is that life is anxious, unsatisfactory and suffering. I sought refuge in the Three Jewels to bring my spirit mental clarity and centeredness in a world full of drama. The process of writing this poetic story began my path to salvation. And now I am ready to share it with you.Writing this story allowed for the exploration of enlightened thinking and the examination of our human drama. This fostered my appreciation that we are all divine and that we are all connected, spiritually and physically. We are all one upon Earth - together.I hope this book finds you when you can use it the most. Let the journey begin.

Born on November 5th 1850 in Johnstown, Wisconsin, Ella Wheeler was the youngest of four children. She began to write as a child and by the time she graduated was already well known as a poet throughout Wisconsin. Regarded more as a popular poet than a literary poet her most famous work 'Solitude' reflects on a train journey she made where giving comfort to a distressed fellow traveller she wrote how the others grief imposed itself for a time on her 'Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone'. It was published in 1883 and was immensely popular. The following year, 1884, she married Robert Wilcox. They lived for a time in New York before moving to Connecticut. Their only child, a son, died shortly after birth. Here we publish one of her many poetry books, the classic Maurine, that so endeared her to her audience. Ella died of breast cancer on October 30th, 1919.

The author and his wife, having sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1984, beginning with the race from Newport, RI to Bermuda, lived for the next fifteen years on the Cote d'Azur, their yacht (a 48-foot NY 40 Swan, built in Finland), moored at the Chantier Navale at Beauleu-sur-Mer, halfway between Nice and Monaco. They rented a villa in St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat for the three months of winter, and cruised the Mediterranean the rest of the year. This story is about their attempts to sail all the way around the Italian boot, to cruise the Dalmation coast of Jugoslavia. Three times they left for Corsica, Sardinia, and dozens of other Italian islands but, before they reached the Adriatic, all three times they had some disaster, such as losing all engine power. Finally, the fourth year they attempted the journey, again, it was a howling success. Various members of their family (six children, fifteen grandchildren) were with them every summer. There were even. years when the paid crew were grandchildren, two years a boy and a girl. This time, a daughter and son-in-law, with a two year old girl, came along for the cruise. The author and his wife left them in Ajaccio, Corsica, to get a ferry back to Nice for their return home. But when they got to Jugoslavia, they were joined by the author's eldest son and his wife, and completed the cruise. Among other anecdotes was their experience at Santa Maria de Leuca, at the very tip of the heel of the boot of Italy. The couple had reached this place after about a month at sea and needed some minor engine repair. So the yacht was put in at this ancient harbor and found a modern boatyard. While walking around waiting for the engine repairs, they discovered there was a yacht club. The author's yard arm always flew the burgee of the New York Yacht Club, and carried an NYYC ID. So he and his wife went to the yacht club and asked to have dinner that evening. The steward was overcome and took them to the commanding officer, who was so overwhelmed, he insisted that the author and his wife must be his guests, and all the club's officers were rounded up to have dinner with them. This was, it seems, the first time a New York Yacht Club Member and his yacht had ever arrived at Santa Maria de Leuca, and they were determined to make a proper affair of the occasion."
