This is a story about love.

Every week or sometimes two, I send a letter to the world I love, even though it doesn’t always seem like the world loves us back (it does).

Many times, I’ll include a brief recording of a poem by a poet I admire, something for you to listen to in the morning, maybe, cooking breakfast or looking for your breath. Here’s a nice one, if you’d like to try it on.

Sometimes I include my own poems, works in progress or published or things I don’t know where else to put down. I put them down here and I’m grateful to do it from time to time. If you’re interested, you can find a bunch of my published work here.

I greet you here, with long open arms, my arms are just so long, and open. I hope you find something that feeds you.

We’re all friends here
