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.

    Lobber: Hi my writing friend,
    what a fantastic free-verse from your relentless pen )or is it )keyboard strokes. Regardless, your words flow with power, determination and a remarkable visual preciseness. You?ve created a very fine painting using words.
    In my theatre class for techies, I tried to teach students how to pull down a final curtain based on the mood and rhythm of the play. Most failed miserably. You, sir, know how to close a poem. You do not need my advice or guidance.
    Great job and performance.
    - Jer
    P.S. I refer to you in a review I wrote. I hope you approve.
