I realize I haven't written in a while, or at least posted.  I lost a very dear person to me about 3 weeks ago, and I have to admit that I am still reeling from everything that has happened.

I had known this person, Brandon, all my life, but we had only become close this year, especially in the past couple of months.  He was also a writer, and a wonderful one at that.  He was one of the biggest supporters of my work, encouraging me all along the way in the post-publication of Nebula.

I want to honor his memory by cherishing and celebrating the life he lived.  I know he didn't want anyone to be sad.  I wish I'd had more time with him.  He was a wonderful person, a very good man, extraordinarily thoughtful, took care of everyone around him, had a great sense of humor, and he will always be in my heart.

He is a large part of the reason that I want to write more uplifting, encouraging poetry and prose.  I realize it goes a little bit against the grain of my typical writing, but I think he would want me to pursue more positive literary endeavors, and be a more positive person in general.  I have taken a temporary hiatus from writing, for now, although a poem actually slipped out for the first time in about a month today, one that I'm not quite ready to share.  I want to concentrate on taking care of myself and my emotional/mental/physical well-being for a bit.  I will try to check deviantArt from time to time, though, at least every other day.  

Take care, my friends.

I am a poet with a day job. My writing is sporadic at best ... I either write one poem every few days or weeks, or I write a bundle of poems in one sitting, usually on weekend nights. I'm into a little bit of everything, as you can probably tell by my devART page! I enjoy helping people out and sharing art of all types.
