Project 2021

Hi everyone, I really hope that this blog entry meets you well. And by well I mean body, mind and soul. My prayers go out to all those who have suffered loss in this time. I feel your pain because I too have lost a brother. Just know that if you are reading this, you are made of some tough stuff – you are a survivor. And all that means is that you have been granted more time to be that blessing, that hope that brightens the corners in our ever darkening world. Do not take your existence for granted.

If this is your first time visiting my blog…….WELCOME. I hope you have had the pleasure of reading my poetry. If not, then what are you waiting for? Plunge right in to a world of inspiration and begin to live again! My poetry while it is reflective of my life’s story, it is geared to open your eyes and help you to see yourself as God sees you. When you were created He looked at you and gave Himself an ‘A’. He said “It is GOOD”. And this is the message at the core of my art. So click on the link below and let me take you on this wonderful journey.

Maya's Adventures

For those of you who have the privilege of being around kids. I have written a wonderful series of poetry books called Maya’s Adventures. They are geared towards entertaining your kids while introducing them to the art of poetry. Maya is a vivacious 3 year old cutie who goes on these adventures with her family and her dog Biscuit. Each adventure is accompanied by a coloring and activity book which will keep your kids captivated for hours. A really fun way to learn! Click on the link below for more information

And finally to those of you who are no strangers to my poetry, I am pleased to say that I have been working on a few treats for you. First I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my poetry and supporting my art. I get so blown away when I read how my work has touched your lives. My newest release is a compilation of some of my poems in Japanese. I took a trip to the island of Okinawa, just off the coast of Japan, some time ago. And I had a great time! I think since the advent of the Covid 19 virus and all of the restrictions on travel that we appreciate those passed excursions more than ever. So I was caught up in reminiscing when the idea came to me that I should compile some of my poems in Japanese as a tribute to the wonderful people I met in Okinawa. I know what you are thinking. But Maya what about those of us who don’t read Japanese? Dear, dear never you fret. This is a Japanese translation of poems in my English collection. I am just sharing your wealth with the rest of the world. So if you have Japanese friends turn them on to this beauty.
