This is the first in a new series of audio recordings of my poems I’ll be posting. I’ve done a few live readings now, and I’ve come to the conclusion that (at least for me) watching a person read aloud can become distracting. I wanted to focus on presenting the poem itself without any particular visuals to cling to. I wanted images to arise on their own, and to bring the words and sounds to life. I hope you enjoy!
(you can read the full poem here)
I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
