Amos White – Poet

I am a poet, author and social media marketer.
This blog represents the convergence of those interests. It brings together my poetry as produced on and even some about the web.

I’ve always had a passion and a penchant for making “friends” and in creating social connections. The advent of Web 2.0 and of social media tools like Twitter, Facebook and Myspace helped me combine my passions to provide the platform for creating the poetic content and for publishing it. The bonus was the myriad of ways these tools could extend and reconnect relationships via “friend-of a-friend” or FOAF algorithms that push seeming disparate connections and long-lost relations back together, matching them in but only a few key words from your profile.

My poems may also serve to reconnect you too, with familiar experiences and images that transcend space and time.

Artist Biography

Elizabeth Hack lays down color and texture onto surfaces
with a transfixed awareness that captures every detail of the hand, pen and palette knife. These “excavations” leave no stroke, line, or color unturned. The strong horizontal compositions of her “Wave Series” and corresponding series, “Wave: The Other Side” simultaneously evoke motion and stillness.

Hack states, “The ocean from a distance looks vast and still
and yet up close reveals its waves moving and crashing.”
Born in Frankfurt, Germany in a military hospital, Hack’s
family moved twenty times throughout the US and Europe.
The constant necessity of movement balanced with a need for
stability has developed into a rich visual vocabulary for Hack’s
work. Each “sculpted“ painting shows a new aspect of the artist’s meditative stance.

Finally settling in Berkeley, California Hack became a regular visitor of the northern coastal town Sea Ranch. The Wave Series was begun there and continues to develop with “Wave: The Other Side”. Both Series can be interpreted as a play between ocean, landscape and pure abstraction.
