The Universe

I wake
& the universe knows itself,
carbon, calcium,
flesh, bone & brain
peering from the bed
at its hydrogen

-Rob Simbeck

That just about sums it up! Rob is an award-winning writer, musician, and speaker who lives in Nashville. We've been friends since we met as fellow students at Carnegie-Mellon University and started writing and performing music together just a few short decades ago. His web site displays a pretty good cross section of his work, including articles, books, music industry artist bios, songs, and poetry. I highly recommend his book Daughter of the Air, a biography of pioneering female aviator Cornelia Fort.
