About Me
I am a retired junior high and community college English instructor and present-as-I-know-how poet. Finding "le mot juste" is greatly aided by a timely consultation of Visual Thesaurus, and I appreciate that.

Favorite Word:

quotidian
The cliché "one day at a time" is how things happen for and to me. If I were collect all the poems I've written in my life, the title would likely be QUOTIDIANA.

Least Favorite Word:

cute
This is one of the most demeaning words in the English language, I think. It's the word that's used in situations when the user doesn't wish to be bothered with thinking of a more precise term. What's worse, its (over)use is usually intended as a compliment!
