I have been a psychotherapist all of my adult life. Most of my work was with young people who were battling a life-threatening illness or a traumatic grief experience, but I had my share of older adults as well. I have had the privilege of providing counsel for more than 400 persons and their families as their life ended. Much of my writing is inspired by their courageous living. I have learned much from them. I have published two books of story and poetry about my work with those coming to the end of life. Both are on Amazon. My most recent book is titled, Conversations. My first book is titled, The Gift to Self.
I have attempted to not be ranked and thus only five poems/stories are available. Everything else is found in the "book" section under the title, Conversations.

    Unspoken94: I'm a "newbie" in competitive writing. To even be in such a contest with so many veteran writers is a "blue ribbon" for me.

Unspoken94: I'm going to take a one to two month break from F/S. I have a book that need to be to a publisher; I have a five year old grandson who is seriously ill; I have a daughter who is homeless with two small children; I have three lectures that need to be written for three large conventions that have paid me a ton of money to hear about my work with the terminally ill; I have a week in NYC to see six Broadway shows and on it goes. F/S need to be set aside for awhile. I will be back in the middle of June. I will try to peek in on occasion. -Bill Stephenson

Unspoken94: I have decided to remove myself from the rankings of a poet. I usually try and post a poem every other week or so and I have become "distracted" with the ranking system. Therefore, I will only be listing five of my most recent postings at any one time.

    flylikeaneagle: Unspoken94 Keep writing. I enjoy your poems and stories! God bless!
    October 10, 2016 at 12:25PM
    I am Cat: The rankings CAN get quite distracting. The important thing is to keep writing. Whether or not you post, that's your decision. But do not keep it bottled inside. You have a voice that NEEDS and ACHES to be heard.
    And I, for one, WANT to hear it.
    October 10, 2016 at 1:21PM
    mrsmajor: Personally, I ave never paid much attention to rating...What's important, at least to me, is to use your talents, for your enjoyment, means of expression, and also for the enjoyment of some that will enjoy your way of putting your pen to paper...Use your Voice, don't allow anything to stop you...God Bless!

    Ideasaregems-Dawn: Oops, didn't mean to post it twice! Sorry! I would delete one if I could!
