I'm a single Mom, have been for 10yrs. My kids are my world. I left my job to take care of my parents who are disabled and in their 80's, thinking once they were ok ( with my background) I would not have a problem getting a job (I'm an accountant). The economy had differnt plans. So with my free time I write. Not poetry, usually, but, all writing is therapy and if you share maybe someone else out there gets it too.

Thank you for your kind encouraging comments :)

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
