how to make it to 45 (& beyond)

We are not victims,
overwhelmed by being;
the pure force of life
pouring oceans over our heads
& us drowning, overwhelmed
because of it–

No, we have learned
how to swim with,
over, under
& across currents

that pull gentler souls
under water

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I have to ask. . . when is your book coming out? Do you have a book out yet? The poems you are sharing are outstanding and inspiring. More people should read them.

  6. Jeremy–thank you SO much! (turns several shades of red) Does a Sally Field impersonation–“you like them? You really, really like them?”

    You have just so totally made my day! I am NOT kidding here…..
