FROM THE PREFACE TO RUSTING: The muse has been my faithful companion for most of my life. I believe that writing is an important act, and I have found writing — particularly poetry — is a path to wellness. I give you these poems as life lessons. I am not just writing poems, I am fostering empathy. These poems are the closest I can come to a survival guide.  —David B. Axelrod
