Sylvia S. Thompson
Diagnosed with colon cancer on my birthday in 2005, I discovered the healing power of creative writing through my illness.
I teach meditation, Reiki, Chakra and Color Therapy and take part in a women's Kabbalah study group in my community.
Many fine authors have influenced my writing,
among them Tess Gallagher, Jane Kenyon, Mary Oliver, Louise Glueck, Annie Dillard, Octavio Paz,
Jack Gilbert and many more.
