Words

The writer in me delights in words — their origins, their meanings, their personalities, their ability to invoke images and emotions… and sometimes just the way they feel and sound as they roll off the tongue. Words provide energy and inspiration for me; they make me stop to think about things that otherwise might have just passed without thought. I find it difficult to listen to a song without following the lyrics and invariably my favorite songs have not only great music, but lyrics that speak to me. Likewise I have always been drawn to poetry and have been writing my own poetry since I was a teenager. On these pages you will find my tribute to words…
