About

Thanks for visiting Arcaneword.  For 20 years I was involved with magazine distribution to upscale grocers around the country. I had the good fortune to be able to draw upon my artistic background while working with store design.

Taking some 20 – 30 trips a year all over the country for the better part of the last 18 years allowed me to not only meet a lot of great people but satisfy a natural desire to travel. Some 10 years ago I began taking an overseas trip once a year for my own edification.

My background also includes working in both San Francisco and New York as an art gallery director, curator,  and later as the art critic- for The Santa Fe New Mexican and other papers in the area. Also put on a number of art exhibitions using unused retail spaces to mount pop up shows.

Writing has always been a part of my life. While in NYC some years back I studied at NYU for a while- taking film classes. I wrote a handful of scripts and have returned to writing- film scripts, ideas for several books and articles in addition to the posts you see here. My story  revolves around travel, the fragments of truth found in daily life …a blind love of movement and a philosophy incorporating the method…..fire ready aim
