Quote Left It's a hard lesson to learn but EXPECT to be taken for granted when you're always giving BEFORE the person has to ask, AND when you don't check if the person really WANTS what you're offering. Think of it, the person NEVER has to say please or thank you. BE CAREFUL not to be an enabler to being taken for granted. It is a very difficult lesson to learn but totally worth it. Change the cycle, everyone will be better for it! Quote Right

ABOUT ME : Late babyboomer Canadian born in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, and raised in Northern Ontario. Fell in love with Ottawa where I received my B.A. with a major in french literature. Still living in Ottawa, I'm finding out that oncoming golden years offer a very rich perspective on life and beauty. 

The themes of my poetry are found in everyday life. I write mostly free verse but I'm also a member of Haiku Canada and have had haiku published in various anthologies.

Please visit often my growing collection of poems and I hope you find many will resonate with you. I'd love to hear your comments.

By the way, my name is pronounced Lynn, and my avatar is an ink painting I created on rice paper years ago. The symbol means PLAY - something I have finally learned to do in later years and poetry is definitely my favourite form of play.
