Nolo Segundo is the pen name of a retired teacher, 74, who in 4 years has been published in 35 lit mags online/in print in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Romania, and India. Until he was 24, he believed only matter was real; then he almost drowned in a Vermont river and had an NDE.

For 50 years he has known that he has a consciousness that predates birth and survives the body's death, and so he went from seeing life as meaningless to being so replete with meaning none can fully grasp its entirety -- hence the title of his first poetry book, The Enormity Of Existence.
