Nature ~ IQ: “Let’s Survive Not Die!” by Keith Alan Hamilton

My friend Keith Alan Hamilton has written a profound book of poetry, Nature ~ IQ: “Let’s Survive, Not Die!” and I want to brag about it a little bit since it just went up for sale on Amazon in early December 2013. Right now the paper back edition is for sale, but by the end of this month he’ll give away free Kindle editions so that people who read his words can freely share it with others. Keith says, “My goal was to have as many people as possible take advantage of the freely accessible way I’ve communicated my thoughts.

Meet my dear friend, Keith Hamilton, poet and cell-phone photographer

I think I was one of the first to join Keith’s Facebook group Poets, Writers, Photographers, Musicians, Artists, etc., and as such we developed a mutual admiration for each other’s work. Keith offered to showcase my work on his Hamilton Gallery and has been very generous in promoting my work ever since. My husband and I had dinner with Keith when we were in Boston last spring, and we became devoted friends. We’re also talking about collaborating on a poetry and cell-phone photography project. More about that later. Keith’s style is earthy. He doesn’t pull any punches. And he has a heart of gold – all he wants to do is save the world.
