Poetry by H. J. Cross (@hjcross_poetry)
My poetry is often the unraveling of my deepest thoughts. I find ordering them into poetry can give me clarity. I might also include the occasional short story. Sometimes, it is raw and transparent. Other times, it may be a way for me to release some destructive thinking with sarcasm. However, all of it is me.

Been around the block a few times. Tripped. Got up. Still sore. Still here. Take pictures for fun. No profit. Hope you enjoy some of the ones I post.

I started analogue photography in 1955 at the age of 12. There was only "black and white photography" for me at that time. At school, later at work and as a hobby, I also learned how to develop films in the laboratory.
My interest in motifs encompasses all areas of life accessible to me.
Since 2008 I also take digital photography and am particularly interested in the many possibilities of image editing.
Drawing and painting, also digitally, is another hobby I learned in school.
The contact with like-minded people at ello shows me how nice it is to see and learn new things over and over again

I have recently picked up my camera and paintbrush in a serious way after eighteen years because I have felt compelled to focus on what is important and what fulfills me. I was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and have been undergoing treatments for that period of time which has forced me to re-evaluate my life and the importance of being here now. I expect that I will be here with all of you for many years to come. All of the artwork I complete isa physical and mental healing part of my journey!

Erik Spahn - Humorist, Humanist.
Much like his literary hero, Spahn was originally born Samuel Langhorne Clemens, later changing his name to Erik Spahn which is, of course, an anagram of Mark Twain.

Multidisciplinary overthinker. When I'm not overthinking, I love to design, sculpt and paint.
I studied fine arts but somehow I got into graphic design, had fun for a while until it stopped. I've decided to throw out all the rule books and just do what I love and what makes me happy.
My work is a cross between graphic design, abstract art and illustration.
