Life is a journey over which a person learns and grows and, hopefully, follows one’s dreams. As in the evolution from a caterpillar to a butterfly, we also change and evolve through the experiences of our journey. For as long as I can remember, I’ve written short stories and poetry. And, over the course of my journey, I’ve had the pleasure of reading some wonderful poems, short stories and books that have deeply inspired me and continue to do so. 

​I’d like to share a few of those poems and short stories that have in some way inspired or intrigued me and hope that they will interest and inspire you too.  You’ll also see my own poetry (“Works“), and some details on my book “Artwork on Mind’s Canvas“.

Here’s to good reading and good writing!

When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.
