I have a Creative Writing degree and I have had my poetry published in several poetry journals.

This is one of my favorite poetry books I've read on Smashwords. Betts writes as if whispering, while making perfectly clear her intentions, like the delicate stroke of a paintbrush in the hand of Monet. When she referred to silence as "The nurturing teat of doubt" (in the poem, "Silence"), I felt my stomach flip like "Exactly!," but my favorite piece was "The Places You'll Go" - not because I'm a huge Seuss fan, which I am, but because the message is perfectly stated with the skill and wisdom of a veteran writer - I thought to myself, "Nailed it."
