Never trust a skinny food writer! Let me belie that axiom for you with proof of my love of food in my writing. Food is a universal language, fact! Wine is poetry in a bottle, fact! Travel is the highest elixir, fact! Poetry is life in song, fact! Food, wine, travel, rhymes and a soft spot for all things furry, respect and love for every living being, that encapsulates me, the affinity for all expressed through the power of the pen. For every journalist, there is nothing more fulfilling than putting pen to paper and losing yourself in every word, unveiling your being with every thought, little by little, and gaining the world in return. So here goes, my reviews, interviews, features, travel stories and poems since 2008… and me, Lyle, a former Senior Features Writer- UpperCrust and Dogs & More and current MA Arts Journalism student at Syracuse University, NY.
