    A friend noticed my signature one day and said: "Write your name big. Don't be afraid to take up space in this world". I can try that. But the question remains: Who am I? Decision- making has never been a strenght for me. Oh, I am good in a crisis (except my own). But as far as decisions that I have time to ponder--well, I always look back. So, maybe the best I can do is tell you that these are elements of me. And if you happen to recognize yourself in my own confusion, please give me the comfort of letting me know.

    Can't help myself.

    Closet Poet and Essayist

    Would-be fiction writer, but I just can't make anything up.

    Oh, and I actually do write in my closet.

    Special Needs Attorney & Child Advocate

    My professional expertise, that I need to share.

  • This is a collection of poems I'm assembling. They are easy to read--I can't stand poetry that I can't understand (sounds like a personal problem, right?)

    I hope to get these out soon-only time and fear stand in my way (sounds do-able, right?)

    These are meant to be read aloud--they are what I did with those humorous, moving everyday moments of insight that happen when your not looking.

    Here's a short example:

     

    Seagull,

     

    That is my french fry.
    I was waiting for it all week:
    these crisp ones here
    at the beach.
    But take it,
    you bold creature,
    and leave me some
    of your
    boldness--
    I'll take that over
    fries
    any day.
