If somehow I have made someone even if only in some small way happy, then it's all been worth it.


Background Information

 

 "My tears fall so as to water the seeds of my love for you."  ~ Regis Auffray

"If you tell someone that you don't love them anymore, you are really telling them and admitting to yourself that you never did... ...and perhaps you don't know what love is."  ~ Regis Auffray

"...that there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo... and it's worth fighting for." - Sam, The Lord of the Rings

"Give in, let go, and take the journey..."
 
"And I remember beyond all clarity realizing that girls (women) were magical creatures put on Earth by the mighty one to save us from ourselves, and that it was our duty to always protect them from thunder and everything bad in the woods."   - (anonymous)
 

 

Regis Auffray is originally from Peace River, Alberta, Canada. His parents and all of his extended family are from Brittany, France. He is of Celtic descent. Bretons are not of "French" ancestry thus, as far as he is concerned, not French although at least one of his siblings disagrees. But he loves all nationalities and origins of people. He is convinced that "compassion" is the answer to all of this gem of a planet's problems. He admits that he just does not have a clue how to make it happen. His first language is French but he learned English when his family moved to a town 100 kilometers (60 miles) east of Vancouver, British Columbia. The first poem he can remember writing was in grade 9 in English class. It rhymed and had the proper rhythm. His English teacher thought it was good and encouraged him to continue to write. (Thank you, Mr. Stolee). Regis is a graduate of the University of British Columbia with an Education Degree majoring in French and English.  He has also done some post graduate work in counseling psychology.  He has taken early retirement after a career as an educator in middle and senior high school. He has been greatly influenced by the romantic poets and the symbolists (in French) but many others - Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud, Lamartine, Frost, Keats, Dickinson, and so many others who don't come to mind at the moment. He says that he appreciates this site because it has allowed him to share with others what is in his soul and he has made new friends whom he greatly values. He thanks all of you who take the time to read and to comment on his creative endeavors.
