Bio: I am a teacher, writer, mother, and a grandmother. I have spent the last 36 years of my life as a teacher, enriching and motivating students to find the joy in learning and developing a love for the written word. As a newly retired educator I now volunteer my time writing curriculum for an after school spoken word poetry program. In my youth before teaching, I was an actress, played in an all girl's rock band in the late 60's, and protested for equality and peace while in college. I am still very involved in political issues that will help make this planet a better place in which to live, so that my precious grandchildren can stop and smell the roses and know that our world is a thing of beauty and the people in it can be filled with love, creative attributes, and artistic endeavors. I hope my efforts to fight for equality, freedom, truth and justice will survive in this brave new world of ours. We owe it to the children to continue to push forward no matter the hardships and challenges we might face with this new administration. Peace, love, and rock-n- roll!

  2. Thank you so very much, Lance. I also find your work incredibly inspiring. Yes, our past and the present do blend together well when we write. The more experiences we have, the richer our poetic voice seems to be.
    I love this quote by Mark Twain. “When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.” 😉
    I think a writer’s imagination is boundless. And the key to staying creative is constantly learning new things.
