Poetry became a catharsis for teenaged angst. My first poem was not about a break-up. It was about a love, that never began. Since that time I have written essays, educational pieces, radio advertisements and flash fiction. Radio announcing has always been a love of mine as well as piano playing for churches and restaurants. I really enjoyed my time as a tuba player in high school and college. I would love to play the tuba, again in some orchestra. Beyond that gardening is my avocation. Hibiscuses, pansies, caladiums, nandinas, hostas and roses are my "children." I have been honored to be mentored by ~ Santa Sisco ~ in "Retired Founder, Rising Stars Program.
As humans we experience many stresses, but we learn from nature, that stress brings life.
