My real life began a few short days ago when I became a grandmother for the first time. I’ve had practice as a “step-step grandparent to 4 boys. I am married to the love of my life and have three grown children. I am a supervisor of special education programs in Cadillac, Michigan. I would retire, except I honestly cannot think of a better or more rewarding profession.
This is my third poetry marathon and although I still cringe at my early morning poems, they have provided a springboard for some amazing creativity.
Although I can’t remember a time that I didn’t write, I have come into my own through the poetry marathon and subsequent poetry group, Some Poets. I am producing a one night poetry reading on September 30th for the “Night of 100 Thousand Poets” non-profit group for social change. (If you are going to be in the Cadillac area on 9/30, please let me know. There is mic time available.)
Life is wonderful.
