I am a newly self-published Author. However, I wrote my first poem at age 8, 1984, as my beloved Grandmother was dying from cancer. It was something, quite cliche like, “Roses are red, Violets are blue,happiness is a puppy-dog smiling at me, there never was a grandmother as sweet as thee.” Grandma hung it by her bed and showed all the dr’s and nurses. At her funeral, our Episcopalian priest read it aloud, in front of everybody. I was vastly embarrassed.
Funny thing, after that, i still wrote poems, more and more the older i got. This is a memorial collage, I created from my grandmother, during an Art Therapy course, while i was in Grad school-a few years back.
The Art I have also been making all of my life-I’ve been told i started drawing at age four-and i never stopped, with either making art or keeping a journal or writing tons of poetry. It was not until I started this blog, last nov, 2012, and saw how many hits i was getting, that i got the courage to look into publishing & my husband really encouraged me to pursue self-publishing options-i am very grateful to him for that. Even if nobody ever buys my books, i can at least say, i did something, i made this-i created this collection of chapbooks of poetry and artwork, i did do something.
