"Take down the dulcimer, let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kiss the ground." -Rumi


Background Information

Thank you for reading! 

I think writing is a wonderful release for the soul.  Writing is new to me, a new adventure, really.  I'm a musician who has been writing poetry for the joy of it.  My inspirations are Music, Pablo Neruda, Emily Dickinson, Mary Oliver, Joan Borysenko, Elizabeth Lesser, Billy Collins, Rita Dove, Galway Kinnell, Rumi, a lot of little hairy bunny rabbits, and diverse Scriptural writings.  So much of poetry feels like music, and music like poetry ~ and to me one lights up the other.  My philosophy is that every breath is a gift. 

 

 

 

 

 

Accomplishments

The fire in my soul, wonderful connections with people I love.
“There is a certain amount of kindness, just as there is a certain amount of light. . . . We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won’t do harm—yes, choose a place where you won’t do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.”

–Mr. Emerson, A Room with a View, E.M. Forster

"Math was my worst subject. I couldn't persuade any of my teachers that my answers were ironic." - Calvin Trillin
