    Poem in Response

    After reading “My Inspired Blog Back Story“, written by the very talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she elaborates upon her decision to pursue writing, discusses challenges, hard work and successes – I was inspired to write this poem…

    From an absence of light came a spark in the dark
       In a call from her dreams to connect with her heart
    Inspiration brought joy with both truth and reward
       When she answered to make a creative fresh start

    NOTE: this poem uses the Preformatted Block, which allows for indentation of text exactly as pasted. However, in so doing, a monospace font is used.


  • Throwback Thursday

    In the mid-1990’s, I took a road trip with a friend from Kalamazoo, Michigan, to visit another friend living in Amherst, Massachusetts. While canoeing, we happened upon a rock face at waters edge. Two of us jumped at the same time from a 30-foot cliff, my friend (top) appearing to defy gravity having used a rope swing, while I simply dropped like a rock. Geronimo!
