INFORMATION
For more than 50 years I wrote and set aside my writing hoping someday, as I came into a life of repose, I would be able to review, organize and find my inner voice through my writing. This wonderful site provides such a safe haven, instruction, critical feedback, and support.

I go to my higher Self in the stillness of space and listen for the words to form and transition into the written word.

I encourage anyone who feels the tug to put a pen in hand and journal or to simply grab a blank tablet and start exploring all the various poetic styles available to learn about and practice to write, you will be richly rewarded as a result.
