I am an artist of the brush and during my college years I did not have my supplies with me and was depressed. I went to my my poetry teacher and consoled in her and she said, "Olan, I can teach you to paint with words." I have been writing poetry ever since thanks to Sarah Barnhart and Delores Malachek; my mentors.

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
