About Me
I started to write when I was 70. My partner died and a friend, full of good intent and keen to not let me get lonely, took me along to a Stanza Group meeting here in Spain, in Benisa actually. A charming, unspoiled pueblo in this wonderful country. Not shy, I took something I had scribbled. No one laughed. I was hooked. Writing this 18 months and some 40 poems of varying calibre later, I am happy to have added this expressive way of spending time in addition to my other great interests, painting and cooking.

Favorite Word:

It's always the start of something new. Every day it is a different promise of sun or rain or snow, or grey or blue or pink, of mighty wind or calming breeze or just stillness. And it means to be inspired, to suddenly understand, to be amazed. I like the synergy of the meanings, one human, the other a product of nature.

Least Favorite Word:

How can anyone be enthusiastic about grey? It's the most unromantic, unfriendly and least inspiring of any word I know. Grey day, grey men, grey suits, grey hair. Dull, dull, dull.
