Since I was about 11, I have written poetry.
This past winter i took it upon myself to organize the huge stack of spiral bound notebooks that have been slowly multiplying for the last 20 years of my adult life!
It was a grueling task–I decided I would try to put them in some sort of time-line order depending on WHEN i wrote them. It was hard, but pretty awesome. I time-traveled and saw all the old ‘me’s right there on my spiral-bound witnesses. I am definitely a collector of words. A speaker in thirds. A witch who made Bitch so she could show you all hers.
Some day I will publish them all. And I keep reminding myself to be slow and steady cuz my nature is to want to publish them ALL RIGHT NOW.
Ok, until then…
