Kurt Brindley is a retired sailor who lives in Southern Pennsylvania in a house on top of a hill. He is the author of a novel about the harsh realities of life in the navy during the Don't Ask Don't Tell era, a book of poetry, and some other things. When not reading, writing, or moving from chair to chair, he often wanders down to the bottom of the hill to walk along the countryside's many rushing creeks and silent still ponds. He likes it down there by the water. You can visit him at bojiki.com.
