Richard’s  creative thoughts are not controlled or conditioned. He is positive with his means with which to express his opinions.  His thoughts are positive when he is willing to create ideas down on paper, as can be read in a new book of poetry and tales that he co-authored with Joyce Lancaster entitled, “Sunnybrook: Poems and Tales”,  published by Chickenbus Tales (2016).
