From Thoreau, To Emerson, and now Whitman! 

I’ve always written poetry here and there, but I’ve been living and breathing it since March of this year. I carry a journal with me constantly so I always have a place to put my new ideas or to work on unfinished poems. I’m starting my third journal tonight. 

My last journal came with me to Concord, MA and I’m hoping to take this one on some new adventures. It’s so weird looking at a shiny brand new one. As you can see, they get pretty worn and beat up over time. I prefer them looking used and tossed around a bit to be honest. 

From a Thoreau quote, to Emerson, and now Whitman! Each quote has described a different chapter of this year for me, and I’m looking forward to this new one. 
Until next time,


Still here!


Yep, I’m still here. I know it’s been far too long since I’ve sat down to write a blog post, but don’t worry my friends. It’s been an interesting few months. It amazes me how much I continue to learn and grow as a poet/writer as time goes on. So many new experiences have inspired me to keep writing.

Unfortunately, my insanely busy schedule has cut back on my creative writing time, but that will ease up soon! This Friday brings another new chapter in my life, a.k.a. I’m moving again! It should be a fun adventure…one that will provide an environment sure to embrace my creative spirit.

Be sure to keep an eye out for an upcoming post about something new that I’m working on…

Until then, I’ll leave you with this quote:
