-from SOMETHING TO KEEP ME VERTICAL

I have always firmly believed in the power of words, and particularly poetry, to save lives. It is this belief, plus a need to express myself to process what I and people around me experience, that fuels me to write. Do not breathe lightly--I welcome your gasps, sighs, shouts, tears. And in return, I give you my heart in ink. This one is yours. 

"Breathe deep. Give thanks. Whisper, 'This one is yours.'"
