The book is out! It is ready to be read and enjoyed. I hope you will do both.
Just Show Up is a poetry book about my life as it was and is now. I wrote the poems in the book believing that my life isn’t that much different from the lives of many others, if not in substance, in spirit. We all get up every day and go about our business in the best ways we can. We all have sorrows and failings and, sometimes, joy. We all love. We’ve all lost something or someone in our lives.
My hope is that readers will find something in my poems that ring true for them, that speak a language they understand. I hope they will learn that they are not alone.
Just Show Up is also my legacy, a way to show I existed in this world, that I lived my life well. Please enjoy the poems you find here, and I would love for you to let me know your thoughts and feelings about them through my contact page.
