This is a quote I keep on my bulletin board in the kitchen:

"As civilization advances, people suffering from the madness that is poetic sensibility are less and less tolerated. Defense of poetry thus means: defense of humanity, defense of authenticity".---Galsan Tschinag

I am planning to attend the writer's conference next week and I'm very excited about it. I believe that some of our hope for the future lies in creativity and I love to be around other creative people.

"Vast floods can't quench love, no matter what love did/ Rivers can't drown love, no matter where love's hid"--Sinead O'Connor
"In many ways, you don't just live in the country, it lives inside you"--Ellen Eilers

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
