Lori S: So excited to discover this lovely little community of fellow word-junkies! Writing, especially poetry, is more than a creative outlet; it's also a deeply therapeutic and meditative activity for me. As a painfully shy child, I spent a lot of time in my own little world... thinking and drawing and writing and creating... Yet these same artistic and creative proclivities allowed me to connect with others and became an increasing source of identity and self-worth. I have been blessed with certain talents- abstract drawing and murals are my comfort zone because I've had a lot of practice developing the skills and techniques involved with that type of art. I've also shared enough of my artwork and gotten enough feedback and criticism to know that I've got some talent in that department. Writing, on the other hand, is a different story (no pun intended!) as I've just recently started sharing my work with people. I've done a tiny bit of freelance writing in recent years, and had a couple articles published in an online journal. But my favorite type of writing is poetry, which (until now) I had no where to share much less the courage to do so! I feared my poetry was either too metaphoric and abstract to mean much to others, or felt it too personal to share. I've always treated poetry like journaling... and who would want to read entries from my diary? So, why FS? And what do I wish to get out of this? Well, to know if you're truly good at something, and grow and improve at that thing, you must be willing to put your work on display and be open to other's interpretations and judgments of it. My goal as an artist- and as a person- is to nurture and utilize the talents I've been blessed with for (if I'm lucky) the betterment of those around me. I feel we each have certain gifts...God-given and therefore spiritual in nature. If we each took the time to recognize our unique talents and strengths, and put them to good use in the world, it makes my heart skip a beat, just to hope and to think, what a beautiful world it could be.
