C. Philip Hurd was raised in many small mining villages in Idaho and Nevada.  He taught English in Japan for a couple of years, investigated child abuse in Las Vegas, has worked restoring colonial and early American antiquities, counseled substance “abusers”, was an industrial carpenter, mechanic and weatherman.  He is a retired priest in the Jodo Shinshu, Buddhist, tradition.  He lives on the outskirts of Reno, Nevada with wife Coral, 4 horses, two dogs and 6 kitties.  He shovels lots of poop and is aware that humans are no higher on any scale of life than animals and that, indeed, there is no scale of life.  He has written several poems and short stories; only recently have any of them been read.  Upon his death, he has vowed to return to Earth as Emma Thompson.
