About Me

Paul F. LenziRetired insurance company executive. New Jersey born and bred, I’m the son of Italian immigrants. I’ve commuted to a hectic professional career in Manhattan, I’ve traveled the world, and now enjoy the lush forested mountains and blissful tranquility of quaint New Hampshire. I married my dear bride forty-eight years ago, and we are blessed with three children and eleven grandchildren.

I hold to traditional values of family, faith and country. I’m an old school, conservative, flag waving, spirited patriot. I’m a student of philosophy and politics. I build model clipper ships, collect stamps, shoot guns, and explore New England’s country lanes. I enjoy a good game of chess, poker, or pool. I am a voracious reader and, now that time permits, an aspiring writer.

I am drawn to people with character, conviction, compassion and integrity. I’m repelled by farceurs, incompetence and the self-absorbed.

There is no unifying theme to this blog. My poetry is eclectic, possibly even quirky. My polemics are judgmental and unapologetic. My prose is thoughtful and, hopefully, cogent.

All of my writing is unschooled but heartfelt. Some of it is for fun, allowing me to experiment with words and ideas. Some of it vents my emotion and is therein therapeutic. All of it has the quality of subjective truth and authentically conveys who and what I am. Simply put, my writing reflects my imagination and life experience. Disabling disease shadows much of that experience.

  2. Hello Paul,

    I am writing to ask if you would use your poetical skills and poet contacts to enhance a developing framework for a Caregiver’s Manual for Men.

    Here is a draft version (https://mlbergitn.wordpress.com/cmfm-caregivers-manual-for-men/) but certainly start from whatever vantage you choose.

    The point is that we (males) need guidance. Sometimes we need it spelled out very plainly in print. If we can reach consensus with the general public that something needs to be done, it could happen.

    Thank you for considering this task.
