  • I have been enjoying reading my poetry now since April at The Social Justice Center in Albany, Arthur’s Market in Schenectady and Inquiring Minds Bookstore in Saugerties. I have also been attending the Poets’ Corner at the Colonie Library. It is so nice to be able to share my poetry and listen to other poetry by many other poets I would have never heard if I hadn’t taken that step to put myself out there.
