Originally, my previous blog was set to “Friends” because I was feeling that old familiar fear of loss setting in. After reading posts from several of you, I decided to let go of some of the anxiety and go public with it.
In the past week, I have really been thinking more about my journey as a survivor, and about how my poetry has grown with me through the process. Once, long ago, I had a teacher tell some classmates that their children would be reading my stuff one day. Well, it is a bit too late for that – and most poets don’t make it into the literature books until they are dead, but I have decided to give it a shot anyway.
Over the next few weeks, I am going to be getting my poetry, and maybe some of my journal entries together for my first “book.” It should be interesting to see what form the book takes, but I will let you know when it is ready.
Love & Hugs,
