Hometown: Arlington Heights

Personal subjects. Feeling-oriented. The process of inner transformation and spiritual awakening.
In regard to poetry, currently Lisel Mueller, Louise Gluck, Mary Oliver, Adrienne Rich. I also read 19th century British classics and sci fi by women writers. However as an Amazon Vine reviewer, much of my free time is spend reading and reviewing new historical and literary fiction.
It feeds the soul.
I live in Arlington and teach Photoshop and several literature courses in continuing ed. I've published nonfiction books (self-help/spiritual/metaphysical/astrological) but am currently focused on poetry writing.
I've benefited from the two meetings I attended but wish more poets would show up! Only Zachary was there September 25- but I enjoyed our conversation and he gave helpful feedback on a poem.
