In the past I never considered myself a writer. However, I decided to add poetry to my list of pursuits that I previously had no interest in doing and for which I thought I had no talent. Poetry was the fourth endeavor added to this diverse post-retirement list, which includes boxing (non-contact, of course), singing in a choir and performing Shakespeare. All four have resulted in publications, performances and/or films, and all four reliably bring me joy!
I often combine my writing and the visual arts. I create intricate designs and embolden my creations with brilliant colors, often embedding symbols to deepen and personalize a piece. I create realistic and abstract work which can be serious or whimsical. Personal history “quilts” are a favorite. Preferred themes include family, Judaica and healing.
