Let others come to you and figure you out or not.
My poetry is always personal, sometimes gritty and mostly to the bone.
If it bothers you, maybe you have learned something from me.
Or perhaps something about yourself. Who knows. Keep an open mind and heart always
when you can.

Recently, a talented and promising poet from England Matt told me he was
closing down his site here. That gave me cause for pause.
Lets all be a bit more welcoming and supportive here.
After all, its the differences in every one that make
life interesting and worth while. Matt I hope you come back.

Art and writing are essential to me, essential as breathing.
I don't need to be paid to write or create...though it would be
grand to be read and perused on a large scale and get more than
a feedback in return...ha ha. Honestly, it would enable me to
be more generous with myself and my friends AND
to visit more thrift and art supply stores, more often,
and THAT would be grand.
