Since retiring last year I've been "Perched on a Peninsula" finding my poet's voice as part of a growing 'young-old'stage of life.


Background Information

Background in philosophy and psychology. Revisiting works of Anais Nin, Doris Lessing, Virginia Wolfe. Major influences at this time are Billy Collins, Ray Bradbury, James Hollis, Patti Smith, Maxine Hong Kingston, Gail Sher, Marc Freedman.

The challenge and opportunity of a 60 something female, alone,  transitioning to a new period of life, burned out and in need of revitalization. What's next can be a daunting project. Not yet old, not wanting to cling to the familiar, yet not wanting to enter the abyss of irrelevance.

Birth Place
Beacon, NY USA
Accomplishments

Winner of poetry contest at 8 yrs old. Superior rating at poetry oratory (other's poems). Marriage and Family Therapsit liscense

Additional Information

Coming of an Age: Medicare gave me healthcare, selling my condo gave me a nest egg, renting a studio bungalow near beach and bay gave me my place; a place to let go of security and find freedom. How does one soar and fly above the constructs of one's own setting of limits? How does one look at their life at an angle, one that will enlarge rather than limit?
