I have always enjoyed reading poetry and have been writing my own since my teens. I’ve written my own holiday poem for more than 30 years. I’ve composed (and read aloud) all sorts of people poems, tributes both humorous and serious, in celebration of special occasions. I published Soul Notes, a first collection of intimate poems after years of hiding them away in boxes. It felt very courageous to do so.
Written (and mulled over and rewritten) over the past twenty years or so, the poems in Soul Notes have been shared with friends, during workshops I have led, and on the web in the Tea Garden. This small book is truly a labor of love. You are invited to open to any page and open your heart and mind to the words penned there.
