What a great way to lose yourself for a little while and let the stresses of the day just float on out to sea.
I would like to take a moment to say Thank You to Nelson Rodgers who has made this all possible for me by getting me a voice activated system to allow me to use the computer without having to type everything in. Rheumatoid Arthritis may hinder me from doing many things but thanks to technology I still have an avenue to express myself. Thank you Nelson for such an amazing gift!!
Poetry is such a great avenue of expression. Every one of us is a poet at heart. What better gift can you give someone then the "gift of words" that they can forever hold dear to their hearts. My hope is that after reading some of my poetry/prose that you may feel the inspiration hit you to write a "poem" for someone you love or vent your emotions using your pen. The ideas are all around you (and inside you). Take something important to you and just let the words flow free.
Have you always wanted to write but never thought you could write something anyone would want to read? Join the club - most of us will never be famous authors (at least not in the eyes of the world). But, to family and friends (little children especially) a story written by someone they love (maybe including them in it), your story - no matter how short - will be priceless. Most of these short stories were written for my son as special bedtime stories or to help him with issues he might be dealing with at the time, so even if noone else ever read them but him - every moment spent writing was worth more than money could buy.
You've heard it said a million times - a picture is worth a thousand words. No truer words were ever spoken. How many of us have envied those with artistic abilities as we struggle to draw a straight line? Guess what? Art is right at your fingertips - just a click away. Pick up your camera - go out and have fun. Feeling stressed? Need a good laugh? Look at all your old pictures and suddenly the problems of the world don't seem quite as important. Instead, get lost in the memories evoked in that little snapshot of time.
