Those of you who are regular visitors to Ericâ€™s Site know that he is a skilled wordsmith who can extract beauty from the mundane things that pass us by each day without notice. It matters not whether itâ€™s dew on the grass, a spider on the window or a hot cup of coffee on a chilly day; itâ€™s raw material for one of his regular linguistic works of art.
It really is quite something.
But, as those of us who know Eric in the real world know, there is much more to the man than his ability to turn a phrase. For instance, did you know that this poetry-reciting Tennessee gentleman is fiercely competitive? In fact, I sometimes think that heâ€™ll do anything to win, no matter what the contest.
