My Marilyn Monroe make up look



Hey. As a preparation for Halloween 2018 I was already trying on some Halloween make up. My first creation was my Marilyn Monroe recreation. I am quite obsessed with Marilyn, her life, her work, her personality and well her looks as well. I explained it a bit more in my Story behind my Marilyn

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.
