What and who makes you want to dance?
Dance as if you don't care who is watching?!
Not worry about others' opinions, judgment, or envy.
BE AWESOME and AUTHENTIC.
This doesn't just apply to poets. It also applies to any writer who has been told "the rules". Rules can and will be broken in writing. What is in fashion today with certain publishers is out of fashion tomorrow. Write, write, write!!! Blaze that trail. Express your true self. Keep at it. Don't stop. There is a place for us all. Carpe Diem. There is no time like the present. Nothing ventured...you get the idea.
We keep looking and looking and looking for "the" answers. It's not necessary. You have already arrived. As you have moved forward have you gotten more clarity on life and it's journey? Instead of questioning everything, perhaps you have all the information you need.
I am passionate about PRO-AGING. Aging as well as possible - given our life circumstances - with enthusiasm, contentment, vitality and energy.
