Life is a journey: Learn often. Live free. Be inspired.

Over the course of my journey, I’ve come across some wonderful poems, short stories and books that have greatly inspired me.  Journeys are typically about learning and growing – and in my case, learning the craft of writing and growing within it.  To do that, I continue to familiarize myself with the works of a diverse group of writers and writing styles.

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.

And, because you can’t grow unless you write and get feedback, I’ll also post some of my own poems and short stories.
