I am a 70-year-old woman who has written poetry since the sixth grade. I have a wonderful wife and a pretty good life. I have a chapbook titled Driving To Wellsville that was published about 15 years ago. I am active in a few LGBTQ groups and enjoy painting, writing, my wife, and my dog. Not necessarily in that order. I am happy to be part of OpenArtsforum and hope that I can keep up.
