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.

    JLR: My greatest hope in writing such stark truths about abuse is if only one person is in or has endured an abusive situation, that they read this and know that they walk not alone and to find another human being to share the painful truth. Healing will come!
