Every new poet has the question, “How do I get published?” and I say to each of them, publish yourself.

My goal is to wake up every day and be grateful because there isn’t a single thing that I deserve. I am grateful that I have found poetry – as a means to survival. How else would I cope with the hyper sensitivities of walking around this planet with my ears tuned in, my eyes wide and my antenna up?

This is the total joy of it all – using our creativity to make gifts for our friends.
