 Hi, my name is Jim Scrimgeour, and I am Professor Emeritus at Western Connecticut State University. During the last 20 years, I have written over a poem/week and have come to understand the importance of working "en plaine aire." I am especially interested in exploring the relationship between landscape and consciousness.
