I find it quite hard to write about myself in a way that will give a stranger any kind of clarity and/or understanding of what it is that drives me to write what I do write because I do not really understand it myself. I do feel that I am driven to express what affects me and the people and issues that I care deeply about but as for how that happens I honestly don't know.

Often a single thought is in my head and I put pen to paper, because I still like to use pen and paper in preference to a computer. Sometimes I honestly do not know what I've written until I stop writing.

I wrote my first real poem at the age of 58 on the night that my sister died and that seemed to release the floodgates. Why I think that others will be interested in what I write I can't say. There is one thing that concerns me a little for as I write I am aware that I reveal a little too much about myself.

I hope to be able to take the time to read what is posted on this site and join in some of the commenting although I am very much an amateur.

By the way, I generally think in rhyme but do like to challenge myself now and again with something I haven't done before. I also write and co-write songs. This also has been a late discovery but I write 3 -10 a week. That's enough about me.

I hope you are interested enough to comment on the things I post and that we can all enjoy constructive feedback. I also hope that I can find friendly, like minded people.
