I have been recording the world since I could hold a crayon.
Exploration is deeply embedded. Writing provides the doorway to release these visions.
As stated by Tolkien, "... the fire springs from the ashen shadows..."
My favorite poets; Keats & the rest of the Romantic Ring...Byron, Shelley & so forth.
I adore & am awed by Elizabeth Bishop & Edna St.Vincent Millay.
I am forever enchanted by anything Tolkien and Yeats.
Then of course, Poe eternally continues to astound me...
