No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In the absence of a lover or love affair, Richard's creativity and romantic nature explored their farthest limits of imagination and remembrance. After purging himself in his Rainbow In The Shade poetry book, Richard discovered some romantic memories hidden for decades. These unanswerable questions drove our poor Zen Pup into a poetic odyssey of self-discovery.

These poems are the intellectual and spiritual journey of Coyote's submission to his memories. Follow his poetic soul's quest for love with willingness to take the blame for his lost love relationships.

Searching for answers from his past to unlock the success of his future, Coyote dug out his memories of past lovers and the women he'd lived with in the 1970s. Wanting to improve his possibilities and avoid repeating any past mistakes, he uncovered a wealth of romantic feelings. Unable to discover any guilt or blame he may have earned, Coyote emerged in a newborn passion for life, and a confidence in his abilities and compassion. Mormons, Christians, menage-a-trois, and harbored runaways fill the pages of this romantic journal of love by the happy hippie, The Hippy Coyote of American Zen.

In 2010 Richard wrote most of the Human Values for Success in Family and Business. He was proud to announce it's completion on his birthday of 2011.
Then he wrote the following:

By viewing the above list of Coyote's writings in 2011, you can see how this book, The Potatoe Valentine summed up his personal quest for guilt, but opened the door to many other aspects and events of his life. These forgotten events, and family secrets were explored in his subsequent book, The AntiChrist. This is the book that bridged the gap between Coyote's romantic memories and the unknown possibilities due to the secrets and deceptions he was a victim of.
