Stress Leads me to Morning Meditations, and Evening Body Scan. Stress is not bad at all. With my new Revelations, I understand more of life.

Writing and the Figures of Life

What goes into stress but the demand to be loved? When I tell my sweetie, my beloved of 38 years, that I want to hear the words of love from her, and she responds, “What more do you want? I take you to every doctors’ appointment.  I make sure you take every medication because I want you to live. I cook all your meals and I make, sure there is always food in the house. I clean the house, and I make sure you go to appointments with friends. I give you money to help with social events, and we go to some entertainment.

I was a University and community college instructor before retiring. I also worked in fast food restaurants, and retail stores.

Most poets make a living in other ways than writing. Wallace Stevens was an insurance executive, and TS Eliot was a banker. Many writers teach, and always there have been writers who have written because they needed to express their thoughts and feelings. They wrote not necessarily to make money but to express "the old universal truths of the human heart" according to Faulkner. Here I reach a wider audience I missed than by self-publishing, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience for less expense than self-publishing. I self-published my first books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude; poetry and photo books which were easier to self-publish than to seek a not to seek a publisher company. This blog allows me to write for an interested audience because I write poetry and personal essays. I write for a friendly audience and present to you a slice of my writing. Perhaps you will enjoy what you read.
