Breathing easy while dancing: The Green Mill, Chicago

Lists have been promoted from a guest star to a plot-regular in my life lately. There was always someplace to go, somewhere to be and something to get done. My world looks like a dizzying blur. Consuming one thing after another, without waiting to swallow. No wonder my body is nauseated more often than not….

Exhale …

It has been two years since my journey with Spoken word Poetry began. More than 7 years since my recognition of my declining mental health did. Speaking about it, did not begin in the first 5 years.

Obama : Audacity to still Hope…

The cover, titled “Reflection,” by Bob Staake, was published eight years ago to honor his victory. I don’t claim to understand politics.
