Stories, Musings & The Vision Thing


hanks for dropping by! On this site you’ll find musings, stories and some observations on writing, creativity and vision. There’s lots to explore. I hope you like what you see.

My Musings page features essays, stories and thought pieces I wrote for publication, fun or just to share with you.

My blog, The Vision Thing, explores vision and innovation with a focus on storytelling, visual artistry and the inspirational moment. It will introduce you to fascinating people, artists and creators I’ve discovered in my travels on the Web.

If you’re curious about my books for children, please visit Nice Dog Books. You’ll find our fun stories for kids and everyone else. That’s KukkaTahti my canine companion and partner in Nice Dog Books.
