[You are welcome to share my poetry, but please include my name and blog address each time you do. It’d be nice if you could drop a line and let me know how/where it’s being used.]
I’m a poet, but I’m also a children’s author, and when I’m not writing, giving presentations, or hosting conversations on FB, I’m sitting at Lake Michigan, which is across the street from my apartment. Which is cool. I also love silence – like really love it – because it’s in the silence that I can hear God speak most clearly. I also hear myself speak quite clearly in that silence, too. I don’t own a TV or a smart phone because I haven’t yet figured out how to have these devices in my life and listen. Maybe one day I will. And I won’t post on the weekends, because that’s when I’m usually writing.
I also have a pet turtle. Her name is Juanita. And I love water slides, snowball fights, laughing really loudly, and watching the moon.
Meisaan (“may-son”) is my Chinese name. It means “Beautiful Coral.”
