So this is what it’s like to be interviewed

I was given the opportunity recently to share my personal story and talk about what art and poetry means to me, when my lovely and talented friend Mackenzie Belcastro asked me to write a few words for her blog.

Mackenzie is a novelist (about to release her magical realism debut) and a mindset coach. She helps young creatives to find their path. In that spirit, she has created a series on her blog called “Conversations with Artists”. She sent me some questions that got me thinking, and you can read the resulting words by visiting the page below:

  1. Thanks for sharing part of the story behind the poetry. I don’t think it’s cliche, but a way of finding a solution, that’s been taken by a certain kind of … humans. Blessed who can take this way. And blessed be you.

    1. Thank you Devika. I really appreciate you taking the time to read the interview. I know our inboxes are always full, and it’s tempting to skip longer pieces. But I wanted to give a bit of context to my poetry and art. I rarely speak directly about what’s going on in my life. I wouldn’t blog here with more personal pieces. So I’m really glad that someone asked me the personal questions that led me to writing such a raw, open piece.


      1. It’s always a good idea to read the artist if you adore his/ her mind. I surely adore yours and so I wanted take your permission in sharing this inspiring interview in my upcoming newsletter? Will it be okay? 🙂
