I am 47 years, divorced, disabled, mom of two, "MoMo" to my grandchildren, and have a love of learning. I started writing poems when I was in high school - mostly because of assignments - but soon learned that poetry was an outlet I could use to voice my feelings. As I have gotten older, I still write poems, but not as often as I once did, but I still write them. In addition to poetry, I also have discovered the world of blogging and that has given me the ability to put my thoughts and opinions into a public forum, as well as an opportunity to educate people on my illness and other controversial subjects.
I look forward to any and all criticism as I believe that without it, we cannot grow as writers or people ...
- At 45, I decided to return to school and pursue a Business Administration degree, which I plan to convert into an Accounting Degree. At the end of my first semester of college, I had an overall GPA of 4.0 and had been offered membership in Phi Theta Kappa, the Honor Society for 2-Year Colleges.
