Preface . . .
Throughout my life and career as a writer, I’ve always used my poetry to encourage and uplift humanity. This book of poetry does just that for the reader. I write for friends, family, strangers and all living things including plants, animals and Mother Earth. Writers can also be moved by inanimate objects such as guitars and tables. It’s really about what speaks life to a writer and affirms the truth that everything and anything can be a poem. In this world we are barraged with pain, loneliness, sadness & fear. Even though this is real life there must be space for joy. We can’t forget about love, laughter, art, imagination and magic. We can’t forget about our humanity. My pen is moved to cull light from rainstorms and remind us that life is worth living and we are all worth wholeness. I truly and deeply believe we’re all here on this earth to take care of one another and gain a bit of understanding that stretches the capacity of our hearts to empathize and love at deeper levels. That has been the high call of my life and the journey of this book. Everyone has a story and every story matters because every heart matters. I hope you find yourself and/or a loved one amongst the pages. I hope your heart is seen, affirmed, encouraged and celebrated.
