A Poet's Life

May 26, 2017 – Rise After Every Fall

Today is a day of fullness emotionally. I have felt this creative surge flowing through me like never before. There is something occurring my my being and I am just opening myself up and receiving it. There are no questions, no whys or why nots, no holding back, just acceptance. I’d had most of my…

May 25, 2017 – Miraculous Mutti

Today is my mother’s 90th Birthday. A year ago today, I took a turn of the dime flight to Connecticut, as I was told my mother was reaching the end of her life. For some reason when I got there, things turned around. My mom started to eat and was in and out of being…

May 2, 2017 – Mental Rewind

I have made incredible progress over the past four months and do feel a great sense of transformation. Change never comes easy and it’s wise to realize that change is trial and error, trying and failing, moving forward, falling back. I made the mistake of feeling just a bit to sure I had overcome some…

March 28, 2017 – Declared Poet

This is my newest tattoo. In all of the tattoos I have put on my body, I had not yet reached a point of committing to putting the word POET on my canvas. I purchases a typewriter last year that put me in an interesting mindset. I felt a connection with those that came before…

March 24, 2017 – More Duality and Self Love

This tattoo was originally a man and woman embracing. I asked Keller to change it to the image of two women embracing. My main reason for that had everything to do with a lifelong issue of not being able to embrace myself for who I am and not having a clear understanding of how to…

I received a most unique birthday gift at age 52. My daughter bought me a beautiful necklace and made an appointment for both of us to get matching tattoos like the necklace. The necklace has two dragonflies intertwined with diamonds for eyes. My kids took me to dinner at Ceviche in St. Pete and after…

February 22, 2017 – No Man Will Truly Love You

It amazes me how easily a child’s mind is shaped and how parental conditioning becomes in integral part of who we grow into as adults. I’ve spent a lifetime trying to define who and what I should be, and how I should shape  myself into someone deserving of love. I had a conversation with my dad…

February 11, 2017 – Fulfilling a Role Absent in My Life

When I found out my daughter was pregnant, I made a promise to her unborn child that I would fulfill a role in her life that was vacant in mine. I grew up without grandparents. Well, for the most part. My father’s mother died when I was around 10-years-old. I remember vividly when that happened.…

February 9, 2017 – Managing Other People’s Anger

I can say now that I’m on the flip side of anger management, I’m deeply hurt by hateful people. I have spent the majority of my life in some state of anger until recently. It was always easier to manifest and express that anger when dealing with things that were happening in my life. There…

February 4, 2017 – Milestones

Age is the inevitable most people struggle with. I’m cool with it. In ten days I will be turning 59-years-old. The only birthday I had issues with was 29. Don’t know why, still have not figured it out, but it’s a long time ago, so no matter. I reflect back on my life in terms of…
