What are you working on?

I’m working on what will be my 3rd collection of poetry…I think it is an exploration of how equanimity manifests but it might take me somewhere else. I try not to impose expectations about content but once content starts to reveal itself I want to maximize the potential for the pieces to work together as a collection. My 2nd collection, Nightlight for Children of Insomniacs, comes out late spring of 2018. In that collection I am exploring how in Buddhism we believe that every sentient being has the potential to have been out mother in another life…that theme was so great to work with because regardless of your personal beliefs, most people don’t respond in a neutral manner to it.
