A Happy St Patrick's Day to you all ... may you be blessed with luck and love this glorious day!


We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion...

"So medicine, law, business, engineering... these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, LOVE... these are what we stay alive FOR”

- Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass


(# 2 pencil sketch of my favorite human being, Walt Whitman, by Yours Truly).

    Home to the gloriously named Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde - my favourite literary figure of all time. So much so I named my only son after him. Good luck and God bless to all you Colleens and Paddy's out there on this most momentous day. Great sketch O Captain! My Captain!
