Welcome to my website! What a strange and wonderful statement this is. It was not long ago that I did not even know what a website was, and here I am with my very own website, navigating the various pages, uploads, and freedom that comes with entering this new age of technology. In my early 80s now, I could not have dreamed such a world would ever exist, where I write a poem, and, rather than store it in a drawer for some future reading, somewhere, somehow—or not—I can, for better or for worse, instantly publish the poem. As I wrote in the Introduction of my first published book, Poets are the Bravest,
“… I have never been interested, or wanted to expend the energy in trying to get the poems published. Whatever time I had to myself, I used for writing them. If I had an experience that moved me in any part of my life, I would try to express my response, my feelings, through writing a poem. … Even when a poem doesn’t work, even when my writing angel can’t help me out of a poetic jam, for me this isn’t wasted time. It is time I’ve spent getting to know myself a little better. Failure is as important for me as a poem that has been completed with a fair degree of satisfaction.”
I look forward to seeing how this interactive method of writing and publishing poetry pushes the boundaries of my creativity.
I welcome your feedback. And, I thank you for stopping by.
