I navigate this world as a Poet and find the doors open.

I’ve swapped poems with the IRS agent during my audit, and recited one to the curmudgeonly washing-machine salesman, the investment agents and personal trainer. The doctor, therapist and vet all know my poetry. Most of them cry, knowing they have been seen, knowing we are walking this human life as family. Remembering ourselves, again. Remembering something beyond words, and ordinary life. See each other. My calling as a Poet is to help us see and remember each other as part of the integral web of all life. Empowered and hopeful.

I’m so glad you are here. Yes, you are here.
