    You must never stop. Never stop telling the truth from the depth of your soul. You are a writer whom we, all writers can learn from. Thank You!

    Really strong writing, so beautifully encapsulating the mixture of emotions wives of soldiers who are deployed overseas go through. Love it

    Thank you for this site. Your poems speak to me very powerfully. My husband has been in Afghanistan for the past 11 months. I live off base and have few ties to the military community, so this deployment has been a profoundly isolating experience. Reading your poetry reassures me that I am not alone, that I am not the only woman who feels this way. You are able to express these emotions in a way that I cannot. Please keep writing.

  9. I love your very deep thinking
