I have work published in the American Poetry Anthology; available in Colleges around the Country and have one book of poetry published-A Private Writing.

I am a Freelance Writer, Researcher, Artist, Activist, Entrepeneur, and offer hypnosis sessions.I also wrote two instructional programs, for professionals like myself, to help children who have or are suffering(i.e., trauma, death, divorce, etc.) When the programs are used correctly, individuals will gain a greater insight on how to teach children relaxation, meditation, and the use of hypnosis so they may have the opportunity to learn or relearn imperative 'life skills', lost (due to trauma, etc.)during various developmental stages. Adults who suffered as children also benefit greatly from hypnosis. You can retrain your brain as well as change your thinking. It is only spontaneous "thoughts" we have no control over. How we "react" or "act" on those thoughts is what we can change.

When Great Trees Fall

by  Maya Angelou

When great trees fall,

rocks on distant hills shudder,

lions hunker down

in tall grasses,

and even elephants lumber after safety .

 

When great trees fall

in forests,

small things recoil into silence,

their senses

eroded beyond fear.

 

When great souls die,

the air around us becomes

light, rare, sterile .

We breathe, briefly.

Our eyes, briefly,

see with

a hurtful clarity .

Our memory, suddenly

promised walks

never taken.

 

Great souls die and

our reality, bound to

them, takes leave of us.

Our souls,

dependent upon their

nurture,

now shrink, wizened.

Our minds, formed

and informed by their

radiance,

fall away .

We are not so much maddened

as reduced to the unutterable

ignorance

of dark, cold

caves.

 

And when great souls die,

after a period peace blooms,

slowly and always

irregularly .

Spaces fill

with a kind of

soothing electric vibration.

Our sense, restored, never

to be the same, whisper to us.

They existed. They existed.

We can be . Be and be

better. For they existed.

 

 The Loft

I wanted to add a variety of artist’s work.  The ones which make us all stop and think… Hope you all enjoy.

 ” A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it.  Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight.  By using words well they strengthen their souls.  Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well.  And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper. “

 

Ursula K. Le Guin
