The purpose of this blog is to keep myself accountable to writing on a regular basis. I am the sole author, and all texts and photographs are my own original work unless otherwise stated/cited.
The world is rarely linear and life is rarely predictable. Poetry helps me to make sense of chaos.
I write my poems from all different perspectives, including those of fictional characters, acquaintances and strangers. I find it liberating to sometimes put myself in another’s position and write from what I imagine their perspective might look like. I do also write from my own experiences as well.
The three writers who have been my primary inspirations are Billy Collins, Mary Oliver, and Max Regan.
Otherwise, I’m a big fan of social justice, radical acceptance, and dark chocolate.
I’m also a social worker.
