He has shared his observations of people and places collected over a lifetime of his body and soul exercise with me, and I savor every post. My pixel sense of Bert is that he is a straight shooter, and he quietly, but firmly tells it like it is...except, he yells in this post.
Bert's blogging and writing wisdom, collected over a lifetime of growing into his Vietnam experiences quiets me at times, and resonates - the machine gun fire becoming the staccato of my cello. Even though my consciousness didn't start until his was about 20, I hear, understand and share the journey of all who participate, rather than simply observe this life, including Bert.
I dare you to read any of his stories that relate running to writing and not nod your head and smile with understanding whether you are a runner or a writer or neither. Bert was one of the first friends I made over pixels when I started blogging seriously. I don't remember exactly how I met Bert, but I do remember that I instantly trusted him and his words. (Wait...now I remember...I commented on a few of his blogposts, and he returned the favor, then invited me to join his Tribe!)
He's got a couple of books coming out soon that you might want to check out, and his blogs here, here and here are not to be missed! He is an amazing Triberr contributor and here is his Twitter handle.
I am so amazed with the people I have met over my few years writing that I had to share. Many more profiles to come, and Jo, my friend, you are next!
Thanks for reading!
