Hello & Welcome!

I am honored by your visit, and hope you come away from my site feeling
touched, moved and inspired.

I am Rev. Bec, internationally published, award-winning poet, freelance
writer, reporter and photographer.

I am included in the International Who's Who in Poetry, 2005 & 2007,
am the Assistant Editor of the New Mexico State Poetry Society's quarterly
newsletter, "Language of Enchantment", and the Publicity Chair and

Chapter of the New Mexico State Poetry Society. I am also on the

and am a member of the Academy of American Poets.

I also just completed writing the Española Valley Visitors' Guide 2006-2007,
here in New Mexico.

My poetry's purpose is to contribute a new perspective, both serious and
humorous, to help change/heal the mind of the world, such that we "change our minds & keep the change"
