This is my letter to the World

Life is all about relationships, knowing and enjoying the people with whom we're making this journey called "life."

I've just returned from a trip across the country to visit family and friends I hadn't seen in a year, and I realized I feel more connected to those who blog because I can keep up on their daily lives. A lot of life happens between annual visits!

As the title of my blog says, the way in which I express myself will be mostly poetry. As I walk through each day lines from poems I know constantly come to mind that inform who I am and what shared human experience is about. I also like lists, so there will be a lot of those. I'm not much of a political person or issue oriented person, but every so often there may be an essay or observation too.

. . . and so, I enter the world of blogging and send my letter to the world.

This is my letter to the World
That never wrote to Me -
The simple News that Nature told -
With tender Majesty

Her message is committed
To Hands I cannot see -
For love of Her - Sweet - countrymen -
Judge tenderly - of Me

(Emily Dickinson c.1862)
