Robert M. Tilendis has been a dishwasher, errand boy, legal librarian, arts administrator, shipping expert, freelance writer and editor, and probably a few other things he's tried very hard to forget about. Through it all, he has been an artist and poet, just to provide a little stability in his life. Along about January of every year, he wonders why he still lives in Chicago; it must just be that he likes it there.

You may e-mail him, but include a reference to Rambles so you don't get deleted with the spam. You're also welcome to visit him at Hunter's Eye for opinions, art, art, opinions, more art....
