Break


Hello my fellow writers and artsy friends,

I am taking some time off to work on my new project: my poetry book which has recently been accepted by a new and upcoming publishing company 451Press from California.

For some reason, I never thought I’d do it, but somehow or other it happened. It happened oddly enough, when

there was death and sorrow surrounding me, it happened one day in my kitchen when my niece grabbed my phone and made me ( despite my arguing against her and Metaxa drowning) an Instagram account…one thing led to another and timing and place and time exploded like a magical night of lovemaking. I can compare poetry with lovemaking because for me that’s as close as I get to it. It’s in my blood, as Greek and alive as that has made me feel, poems have created a world for me that I can delve into and understand. It’s a sort of gift, but at the same time I write every day along with my morning coffee. I write in my head and when I sleep…believe me the words don’t stop…

As a teacher as well, this is the crazy part of the year so I am taking some time off of my blog to put together my pre-k end of year activities/graduation/ gifts and all the fun stuff that go along with this amazing job of teaching young children.

Don’t forget that my book Crush can be found on Amazon.ca ( paranormal romance).

I really want to thank you all for inspiring me to collect my poems into an anthology, without your encouragement, perhaps this book would never have come about. I know it’s just another book of poems and who buys poetry books anyway, right?. Who cares? Believe me, I’ve heard it all…but, the few that do, are right here and I am grateful.

Peace. Love to All.
