I began writing poetry when I was fourteen years old. I have no recollection of what inspired it so unfortunately I have no touching story to recount. Poetry reading is not something I did, or do, as a rule. Writing poetry, however, is something that brings me one of the most encompassing senses of fulfillment and satisfaction that I have ever experienced.

This blog also includes:

movie reviews I did for the Ron Perlman fansite "The Perlman Pages" in 2004,

Wiccan Rituals I wrote while I was practicing Wicca from 1994-2006,

Abraham Lincoln related book/movie reviews,

poetry inspired by the Periodic Table of Elements, 

a few science/skepticism/Atheism related articles,

and a smattering of personal essays.

The Name ~

More than a decade ago a friend and I made a poetry pact: write one new poem per week for a year. We called this deal "The Phantom Express Card", named for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "The Phantom Of The Opera" we had been entranced with in the late 80s (also a time period in which we had been writing like mad fiends). Seemed like it was time to reactivate that account.

Thank you for taking the time not only to read but to write!
