Busch began writing poetry in the early 70s. His toddler and
infant daughters were his muse. His style, he says, was informed by Basho
my horizons in a little note book titled 'Oakland Zen.' It would be
the first of eight notebooks over the years that I would enter poetry,
drawings and quotes in."
In the late 70s he
moved with his family to Jamestown, California. As it turned out Tuolumne
County was becoming a community of writers, artists, photographers,
actors and musicians. This crucible encouraged him to write often and
create with painting and sculpture. With several other writers he founded
the Mindprint Review, a literary quarterly that lasted five years.
He contributed poetry, prose and drawings to it.
During that same
period he published a chapbook entitled Traces; was accepted by other
including The Archer and Magic Blend; was an editor for The
Shadows of Light, an anthology of poetry and photography of the entire Motherlode
and Sierra, published by Jelm Mt. Press.
In 1989 he moved
to Marin County and continued writing. He remarried in 1994 in a ceremony
with a circle of family and friends in the redwoods.
I became avid hikers and campers. We took this to the next level by
becoming fulltime RVers. We have been working in campgrounds and resorts
from Washington to Wisconsin and back over the last five years. We currently
live near La Conner, Washington."
