My friend told me today that she and her husband sat together and read one of my poems. She said they cried together in the reading. I told her I just wanted to tell the truth. That's why I write.
They even made a comment about My Violin of an Armpit. I am going to read it this evening.
I was interviewed by A Word With You Press for the Author Spotlight and I'd like to share that with you today.
My book launch party is in a few hours, and I'm so busy getting ready for it, I can't even be nervous about it. But those feelings will come. And I may write about them. Sometimes it hurts to tell what I'm seeing, doing, learning, or becoming. But that is the work. And I am humbled by the people who are brave enough to share their words with me. They inspire me to do more. So thank you all (song writers, poets, rappers, friends, etc.) for giving me the strength to tell my own story.
With words, song & prayer,
|Yours Truly, Summer 2011|
