I’m so happy to share that this book has published!! It is such a relevant anthology of the times, showcasing the arduousness of 2020. 114 writers, poets, and artists have contributed to this book filling it with stories of the difficulties and raw emotions in navigating current social, political, and medical travesties. Black Lives Matter, the Covid-19 pandemic, Trump, and the insecurities felt during the upheavals occurring in our nation, and our world is front and center in this anthology. It is a book facing them all head-on, revealing our humanity but also our strength. I would encourage you to get your copy!

For those of you who enjoy art, especially watercolor paintings, Brian Tucker is amazing! This type of art usually has such an ethereal quality to it but his work has such definition, depth, and richness about it. Just beautiful! Enjoy! I want to thank Goff for pointing me in his direction. 🙂

This incredibly beautiful image crossed my Facebook news feed (Thank you Jesica Nodarse!) and I just had to share it with you all. Of course, the first thing that struck me was the color. Anything purple, it being my favorite color, always attracts my attention right away. In looking deeper, when I compare the original image below to the efforts she made with her colors, shading and placement, I’m just in awe of it! There’s such a feeling of mystery but yet so much strength within her image. Would love to hear your thoughts on the image, and even what you think of her other work. I think it’s all beautiful.
Years of depression punctuated by obsessive creativity brought him closer to the inevitable. Alcohol became his chosen poison. Lacking the proper nutrition and suffering from frequent bouts of insomnia – it only propelled him deeper into the black abyss. The delusions which led to his self-mutilation only further supported the theory – he was mad, and he felt all alone.
He had lost everything of value to him. There was an empty canvas on the easel, his colors, and tools. What would he paint?
Nothing. He was at his self-inflicted end. “The sadness will last forever,” were Vincent’s final words.
I am so honored and pleased that my poem, Just A Blank White Page, was published this morning on Vita Brevis Poetry Magazine! Thanks to Brian Geiger, Editor of Vita Brevis, for finding my work worthy of inclusion.
