When the ego speaks its in these words:

As far as I know, I do not commit any crime or wrong, but when I surprisingly seem to do so, it is always inspired by the rest of the world...  

To the best of my knowledge, I am a great personality, all the good things of me happen to be inspired by myself...  

This is the 'I' thing... of inspiration...

Me first read as a lad was "where the red fern grows" o what a wailer that one was. Next my memory recalls my undertaking of eating an entire book. It was the Red Pony by Steinbeck. I chewed and swallowed half of the back cover and then I must have discovered girls or something cuz I didnt read alot more for years to come.

Many writers of songs that have touched me in a very profound is poetry to music!!!  Very important to me!!  

As a little girl I liked reading BEVERLY CLEARLY books and my favorite poet was/is ROBERT FROST.  My fourth grade teacher was quite an inspiration when it came to writing she gave me the hope and encouragement I needed sooooo much.  She loved the short story I wrote.  In high school I began to completely love SHAKESPERARE'S work very much....I was a page in a production of SHAKESPEARE'S "AS YOU LIKE IT" which besides "TWELTH NIGHT" and "THE MERCHANT OF VENICE" is my favorite play by him.  I also really like the poetry I have read by SYLVIA PLATH....I feel like I can relate to her...I researched her life for a paper in an English class once....a tragedy her life seemed.  Oh and back to music... JOY DIVISION is a late '70's band that later became NEW ORDER soon after the lead singer took his own life....the lyrics were very intense, deep, and depressing pieces...some of the best sad writings I've ever read...I have a book with their song lyrics in it.  But, I didn't start writing poetry until I was about 19 or so...the first poems I wrote were about one of my dearest friends...then I didn't write again for about four years or so then all of a sudden in '98 I started writing again and haven't been able to stop since.  I love the people that touch my life soo deeply that it inspires me to just want to pick a pen and paper up and just write.  Other times I am feeling sooo sad and it's the only way I have found to even begin to get across the feelings that run soo deeply below the surface.  I think my poetry is very STRANGE AND UNIQUE...I always wondered why I didn't write NORMAL like everyone else...but since I found PASSIONS I'm beginning to enjoy my uniqueness.  My grandmother wrote poetry...she wrote one for me when I was mother says it's in my baby book.  My mother says she wishes she had the writings my Grandma did...I'd have to agree with her.  Also PASSIONS has been very inspiring to me too....I read poetry that makes me know that I am not alone in my pain...I've read very funny pieces that bring me to laughter which makes my day and makes my tears fade away....then when I write poetry and people say they care it makes me feel good that I have such special friends that really do seem to care about others.  Anywayz, that is most of what INSPIRES me.

I don't really remember any from my childhood. But just this year for my birthday I recieved the entire set of The Chronicles Of Narnia. And I must say I am totally enchanted. And just a couple of weeks ago he also sent me The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien and I can hardly wait to get started on that one.

I guess it would be Shakespear really.
We did some of his plays at school. Really I read anything that takes my fancy...I don't have favourites.
I have been writing poetry since I was quite young. I never consciously worked at just sort of happened for me.

Tolkien, Tolkien, Tolkien!!!  

Well, him and Anderson (Hans Christian, not Michael R. -- LOL)  At least as far as fiction goes.

Poetically speaking -- Frost, Poe, Dickinson, and of course my all-time favorite, fellow Irishman W. B. Yeats ...

And those were just the first ...  



It is only a test ...
