Shae Masse, thank you for one heck of a beautiful response — So insightful ! I’ve only recently began sharing my prose and poetry and in fact the first version of this poem was written back in 1991 — it sat in a folder for such a long time … so often people don’t get what I’m saying , or they are pretty hostile so … your words are a wonderful nourishment.

I’m an artistic writer who loves to use pen, paper, clay and computer to support self and societal health, empowering thru the light of truthtelling stories.
