Pic of Tonn
Tonn Pastore has lived at the beach for twenty-three years because that’s where they keep the ocean. This time allowed him to witness many changes. The influx of culture and the migration of people energized the slow pace of Jacksonville. The ocean breezes thinned not just the air around him but also the barriers around his heart. He married a third-generation native who showed him the joys of Jacksonville and the love of a new family. His poems pull from the pain and the joy of life and loss.
