Blog Buddy Friday: Gary Maxwell


Gary MaxwellI’d like to introduce everyone to poet/songwriter Gary Maxwell over at Fool’s Blog. Gary is probably one of the most charming and talented wordsmiths I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. He can turn a simple line of poetry into a complete story simply by choosing the right words and by manipulating the way the words are used. It’s amazing.

His poetry never fails to delight and entertain. He has an awesome sense of the ridiculous and never fails to give me a good laugh or two or three. If I need to feel a little more cheerful all I have to do is visit Gary for a while and he never fails to add a dose of humor to my day. But he’s not all about humor. Some of his work is very serious and thought provoking.

There’s one more thing you need to know about Gary. He just happens to be a darn nice guy. Go visit Gary and have some fun with words and while you’re there read Massachusetts, one of his serious pieces and one of my favorites.  https://yeoldefoole.wordpress.com
