Born in Hamilton, Ontario and raised nearby in Dundas, JonArno Lawson's most formative experiences as a child occurred in Florida which he visited for an extended stay at the age of eight. Happy to be missing almost an entire year of school, he filled his days at the beach digging holes and collecting shells and coconuts, travelling in glass-bottomed boats and touring nature parks that featured free-roaming monkeys and parrots.

The Tree and the Telephone Pole
A tree stood next to a telephone pole and said `I've just detected; your branches and
your roots are gone, not only that, your bark's not on! Poor tree, so disrespected!'
The telephone pole reflected: `It's true in a way, you're very astute, I lack branches,

There is an important truth;
that seems both consistent and constant to me:
The truth is that the truth is never
What anybody wants it to be.

A macaw can't caw but it sure can squawk
Let a mockingbird mock at the call of an auk
But a caw's the law when crows talk.
