I have always written. Stories, poems, musings. It is one of the ways I make sense of life and sort through my jumble of thoughts and emotions. I love language and and I love words – the myriad ways they can be used to capture a moment, a feeling. But my passion is poetry. Through poetry I can express myself in ways that hopefully others can understand; I can use the detachment of the written word to articulate what I would otherwise be to embarrassed, or tongue-tied to say face to face. So there will be poetry on this blog, as well as short stories and my general musings on faith, mental health and everyday life, as I understand it.
