I have been writing down my impressions of the world around me since I was able to put pen to paper.
I have been a Registered Nurse for thirty-eight years. A great deal of my poetry reflects my experiences with various forms of mental illness and difficult life situations.
I believe we all have the ability to move away from our everyday cache of generalizations and judgments into a place of compassion, understanding and wisdom.
I have always wanted to make a difference in the lives of people around me.
If my writing helps someone to change the angle of their vision; if it gives birth to new ideas to consider; if it helps in coping with the many problem solving opportunities we have in our lives then I have done what I desire to do.
I have communicated with intent and left some meaningful part of myself behind.

Excellent book. I could easily see some of the stories as inspirational cards (like Imprints) or being made into songs (like Night Watch), Some of the writings were happy (like sweetness squared), and some were so very sad (like Holding on). Most of the stories were inspirational making me want to be a better person (like My best friend). All of them were well written and were so descriptive that I could almost see the lines in the faces of the people in the stories. This book reminded me of the importance of slowing down and paying attention to see the profound significance, meaning and importance in the stuff in our everyday lives. I highly recommend this book.
