I write because I must. But not always about my journey as a dementia care partner or to advocated for better care. Sometimes I write about other aspects of my life, and sometimes that writing takes the form of poetry, which I first began experimenting with in late 2012.
Here are links to seven pieces posted on my personal blog amazing susan, which I invite you to follow if you find it of interest.
1) never on sunday
a non-religious rant prompted by an ungodly answer
2) a royal flush
about creating something new when the chips are down
3) the shape of things to come
poem about life’s potential and living it
4) hack and kill
a nursery rhyme for violent times made more real by the ongoing random attacks worldwide
5) mary had a little blog
a reaction to censorship and power plays
a poem mourning the losses associated with the suppression of voices of dissent
I also sometimes post poetry on My Alzheimer’s Story; you may find it here.
