Author: Robert Eastwood

Robert Eastwood has evolved, not just in the biological sense, but in the evolving of his heart and mind. He began a career in business, and although he was relatively successful for thirty-four years, he knew he wanted something else. He dabbled with art, but it was something to do with books. He became a teacher, he taught high- schoolers writing, but found it was the writing itself he wanted to do. At 60, when his four children were out of college, and away, making their own futures, he began to write and publish poems and short stories. Now, after 22 years, when he sees a not too distant horizon, he has published four books of poetry with reputable publishers, he has won prizes and recognition, and enjoys friendships with like-minded poets and writers. His works include CANTATA ANGELENO (Broadstone Books, 2021) and SNARE (Broadstone Books, 2016). Maybe evolution, as Alfred North Whitehead and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin suggested, is ineluctably upward. We are collaborators in creation.
