“Beautiful Words Volumes 1 and 2” is a collection of free verse eclectic poetry. All of the writings in these collections was written years ago, as early as 2006 and as late as 2013. It began when good friends Danny and Aline Massey gave me an old computer. A really old computer! lol (Thank you, Danny and Aline.😘) But I had recently moved to a new town and had nothing special to do after looking for work all day. The computer, however, was a laptop and the only thing that could be done on it was typing. No pictures. No Color. Just a blinking horizontal line on a dark backdrop. So I immediately started to type the words that I was hearing in my head. It was the most natural thing for me. I didn’t even need to think about it! Before long I had written my first piece, “Eyes”.
As I spilled my words onto the computer, I could feel something happening in my soul. Calmness. Contentment. Joy. Peace, like I never experienced before. For a person who had suffered her whole life, fighting anxiety and depression, I was completely relieved…and still. This was a place I had never witness before in my life. And I instantly knew I never wanted to be rescued from this feeling. After years of being a daughter, sister, mother, aunt, and friend, in that very moment, I had also become, an author!
