Last night, I met the very lovely SARK. She was doing a booksigning at a local bookshop called Changing Hands in Tempe. SARK has been such a wonderful influence in my life. I have most of her books, been a fan for many years, and am a loyal member of her Marvelous Message Board. She bestowed "purple crayon blessings" upon us and discussed her new book, Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper. What a blessing as I am discovering how to get into publishing my work! Timing is everything. Maybe it's time to dig out the binders of poetry I have written... they are hidden away, collecting dust. SARK's message is that we all have something very valuable to share with each other: our stories. Our stories swirl together in the collective energy of the world. They want to be heard.
