Change is inevitable.
But that inevitability doesn't mean I have to like it.
The biggest change in our lives is our eldest daughter graduating after twelve years of home education, and she'll be living on campus in the fall when she starts at Point Loma Nazarene University. She's my best friend in many ways, and I'm gonna miss her dreadfully.
So in the spirit of change, I thought I'd re-do my blog a bit. I truly wish I had either the skills to really make my blog a stand-out or the $$ to hire someone to do it for me. But I've enjoyed playing with the new Blogger templates and made a new header. Someday I'll invest more time into blog design, but these changes will do for now.
And now that the tabs for additional pages show up so nicely, I decided to add a page that contains some of my better poems (in my not-so-humble opinion). They all need vast revision to get them to the level I want them, and much of the depth I'm seeking is only going to come with time and practice. So I post them for now, knowing (and letting you know) that they are not-quite-ready-for-prime-time, but I'm willing to be brave and post them. I have arranged them alphabetically by title. You may click on the "Selected Poems" tab above or click this link to the page: Selected Poems.
I'm pleased with my growth as a poet over the past couple of years, and I'm enjoying the process of writing poetry and learning a little more with each poem I write a poem...even the sucky ones.
