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.”

Life is a Live Performance

Life is a live performance…there is no script…no rehearsal

the words…the actions…are yours alone

When the curtain come down…life ends

Only the reviews and memories remain

Life is a live performance…there is no script…no rehearsal

Memories Last a Lifetime

Summer days, a little boy and a dog linger on the back roads of my mind. The time was called “forever” and everything was perfect.

The creek seemed as large as any proud river and it belong to us, my dog and me. We explored its shores as far as we could see. The creek became a part of us. Pal and I lived to be together and to experience each day as it came. We couldn’t wait to get out and going each morning.

Summer days pass all too soon, as do boys and dogs…

but memories last a lifetime.
