I wrote the first entry in this work in May 2001, just before I graduated high school, and the last was written almost eight years later in the spring of 2009. This book ends right where my first book, Where the Honey Meets the Wildcat, begins. Singer is a collection I had every intention of printing or publishing a long, long time ago. The original work was much more dense and did not span as great a time. What I present here is the strongest material from the original Singer and what was to be a second work entitled A Fibber, a Scribbler, a Sunshine Nibbler. There is love, enchantment, danger, altered states of consciousness, unconscious despair, stupendous awe and moments of awakening and blissful insight. This is a big part of my life story thus far expressed in poetry and prose and the recall of dreams. I owe it to my younger self, the deep but unfocused dreamer, to put this work into the world. I never could quite overcome my distractions, even at my best. At my worst, I welcomed them. I have been in the darkest places but even there I never lost faith in the potential of this existence. I am much older now but the expressions in these pages continue to inspire me. I hope they inspire you. I hope they cause to believe in life as profoundly as I always have and to see the magic that is very real.
