This is the effect Ian has. I adored and respected and admired this kind and gentle man so much; dear friend, poet, collaborator and indefatigable language art instigator. Singer. Influencer. I will miss that singular voice. Effect.
Sadly Ian left this mortal coil Friday November 3rd. Much love and condolences to all his friends and family.
Photo of Ian as a young man beautifully captures his beautiful soul. Rest in peace Poet.
