Hi all.  I deleted this page when I first started this poetry blog, because it was so not me, not the image I wanted to present.  Now, three months into this blogging thing, I think I know what I want to say and how to say it.

This blog contains poetry, some artwork (mostly my daughter’s), and photography.  I started this blog after a 17-year-period of mostly not writing a word.

I am a poet, an activist, a mom, and a grower of live things.  Welcome to my blog–hope my words have something to say to you.

Here is some of my daughter’s artwork–her self-portrait.

    Hello Susan,

    How bold of you to welcome “altercation, analysis, argument . . .”! I like that in you. It is a fresh contrast to some/many bloggers who seem to welcome only what they want to hear or like.

    I also love your colourful background image comprising a conglomeration of geometric shapes.

    Please convey to your daughter my compliments on her self-portrait, in which I see a young lady with a love of hearts, her heart-shape, cerise lips perching above her sanguine heart pendant or choker.

    Happy October to you and your family from SoundEagle!

    10 year hiatus of not writing for me, so we have that in common although you definetely do it better than me.

    I liked the poster that read “Beware of Artist, they mix with all classes of society and therefore the most dangerous” RIngs true to me.
