I write posts on this blog for two reasons. I want to promote my own work (what writer doesn't), and I want to share my love of the written and visual arts. In the past nine years although I've written fiction and non-fiction, I've been focused mainly on poetry. I am interested in hearing from writers and readers. I am actively seeking to expand my vision of what is possible as a poet/writer/artist through shared self expression. The effect of words and images on our psyches can be profound.
