I am a poet, and I embrace poetic communities wherever they exsist! I believe in the intrinsic value of all living things. I believe that there is much humans can teach each other if we really listen. Also, 'nature' teaches us as well, when we listen. I follow political and social events closely. I have been told that some of my statements and beliefs make me seem "intense", and I suppose sometimes I am. However, I can be 'light-hearted,' and I like to have fun like everyone else!
