I am 51 years old. I love reading and writing poetry and what I call "writings". Much of my writing is sad and speaks of lost love. Some of it is spiritual and speaks of my faith. All of it is what is really in my heart and soul. Life is joy and pain and tears and I am thankful to be alive to experience it all. My favorite Lit teacher was Jimmie Canfield. I have not seen her for 22 years but I will never forget the impact she had on my life at Erie Community College in Buffalo, NY back in the early 80's. I wish I could tell her that. Thank you for taking time to read my bio. I would love to communicate with others who have experienced soulmate love or wish to. It is difficult to find others who relate. Once you experiernce it you are never the same and you find out even after death love lives a life of its' own. I work days so any emails would be answered late in the evening after 9.
