About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Arts
Occupation poet and writer
Location California, United States
Introduction It feels odd to tell people, when they ask you what you do, that you are a poet. It is of course not a proper profession, if by "proper" one means a job that brings in money. It is most certainly an occupation though. Reading, writing, going to poetry events make up a sizable percentage of my life.
Interests Writing, reading, travel, Iyengar Yoga, a bit of light hiking, and trying out an occasional new recipe. These are the things that keep me going.
Favorite Movies There are so many. I just love going to movies, thinking about, and writing about them too. This past year I saw many fine films, including the Polish film Aftermath, the British film Philomena, the science fiction film Her, and the wonderful Twelve Years a Slave.
Favorite Music I enjoy Coltrane's ballads, traditional and folk music, etc., but I wouldn't say I spend a lot of time following music in general.
Favorite Books This is impossible to say. I read like I breathe, fairly indiscriminantly. Recommendations are welcome. I read modern and contemporary poetry and novels, particularly serious ones. I also enjoy quality children's literature and science fiction/fantasy. I have always had a stack of books and other reading matter, including cookbooks, on hand wherever I am, and that is one of the reasons my house is an awful mess.
