So glad you stopped by to learn a little bit about me —
As a young mom, many many years ago, I used to tell my children when they were in their tremendous twos and they would let go with a high pitched scream when they were unhappy, “Use your words, please.”
Now as an Emeritus Dean of MBA programs, I am of the age…but instead of “retirement” ( I am not tired) I choose to call this stage of life rejuvenatement!
So when I rejuvenated, I took a poetry course, and another and another.
And there I was, telling myself to “Use your words, please.” And so I did, and I do. And always for fun! And if other folks enjoy my words, well that’s all the more fun.
I started this blog March 1, 2015. Who says you can’t teach an old dame new tricks??? 🙂 I’ve met so many amazing people and find myself chatting with folks from all over the globe, while I’m sitting here with my morning cup of coffee.
I’ve had the fortune to publish my poem Cape Cod Muse in Provincetown Magazine, the October 1, 2015 issue. So exciting!
In March 2016, I was honored to read some of my poetry at Bermuda’s celebration of UNESCO World Poetry Day…
My suggested prompt was used for Day 10 NaPoWriMo 2016.
Very excited to have 4 poems published at Poetry Breakfast: May 13, May 18 and May 31, 2016!
Shadow published on One Sentence Poems, June 24, 2016.
Board member of dVerse, the virtual pub for poets at http://dversepoets.com since May 2016. A wonderful site where poets from around the world respond to prompts on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Yep – I’m lovin’ rejuvenatement!
Lovin’ life — lovin’ sweets — game to try new things like chocolate bacon!
And that’s me with the love of my life. After 48 years, we continue to be thankful for every day!
