The Resplendent Quetzal can

Posted on Wed, 25 Aug 2021

The Resplendent Quetzal can not survive being caged, can only live free, as all should. There is so much to interpret here, so much to question. I love the journey through your superstitions, your distrust of gods and their teachings, to follow,...

Such a lovely passage you’ve

Posted on Wed, 25 Aug 2021

Such a lovely passage you’ve woven of the day dispersing into night within a forested background, and ending with a child's sleepy end of day. Beautiful words and visions in this poem make me remember my long ago, childhood secure, drift offs to...

I like the way you start,

Posted on Sun, 01 Aug 2021

Posted on Wed, 28 Jul 2021

"Two muppets and a vampire" made me laugh out loud - very ingenious, the swirling virus with a thought process.  A well written political lampoon.

WOW! I would love to see this on a stage, in fact that is how I viewed it as I read it- Great dialogue, fast paced and humorous . Believable exchange between father and daughter and I loved the caustic attitude to the waitress and the asides...

Love this introspective piece

Posted on Thu, 22 Jul 2021

Love this introspective piece of writing. The spirit of the child in you is evident and because of it you will not be pigeon holed by the age of the body, that youthful perception is what keeps life alive and the difference in how you live it. ...
