About Butch Dean

I was born and raised in the mid-west and attended high school in the '50's. My paths in life have taken me from a teenager in the fifties to the U.S. Navy in the sixties; from a blue collar worker to a nursing degree; from Illinois-Arkansas-Florida-Tennessee and back to my hometown in Illinois. Many roads have I traveled and many travelers have I met along the way, all with stories to be told. With my faith in God and “dust on my shoes,” I travel the writer’s path. My poetry and writings are about faith, hope, love and the human condition. It is my sincere hope that the thoughts expressed will find a way to speak to your heart and soul. "It's never too late and you are never too old to do what you’ve always wanted to do.”

The Gloom of Winter

Memory Bears by Bonnie

A time of grieving for the summers of our life…a time of remembering…a time of hope for the sunshine of better days. Those days will come as surely as spring follows the gloom of winter.

Life’s Journey


img_07871Life’s journey is not always on a straight and clear road. There are days of winding and wondering and nights of sightless hills and curves. The way gets rocky with pit falls to avoid. There is falling down and there is rising up. There is defeat and there is victory. Tired and weary, the journey continues and with each mile the hope of rest.

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:29-31 NIV)
