If you’re interested in reading how a lively, observant, and honest woman (Drusilla, my wife) deals with an out-of-the-blue death sentence (Stage 4, lung cancer), you can follow her thoughts on http://drusillacampbell.com/blog/ In September San Diego’s UNION-TRIBUNE called her blog “staggeringly honest.”
My Dying Timeless Bride
Art Campbell’s Non-Blawg contains thought-sprinklings from an aging jock, recovering lawyer, and die-hard poet. Campbell was born in Brooklyn, raised in Appalachia, and scholarshipped to Harvard and Georgetown Universities. Prior to earning his second law degree he was a road-maintenance worker, janitor, boxer, rugby player, and professional musician. He then became a trial lawyer in Washington, D.C.– both for and against the government.
For over 40 years Campbell has been challenged to follow the path of Zen Buddhism through varied venues. Although a full-time law professor at California Western in San Diego, he’s seen his poetry win prizes and publication throughout the United States. Married to best-selling novelist Drusilla Campbell, with whom he’s raised two sons, he now trains two dogs and three horses, and occasionally runs roadraces in southern California.
