  1. I like your poem and your writing. I’m not good with computer smarts (nor street ones either) how do I ‘join’ and get to see more of your stuff? I have an iPad and don’t know how to bookmark you. Gail


  2. Discord or calm 

    Are we in the land of discord or calm?

    What is the opposite of woeful pride?
    What is on the other side?
