A person who a hundred wondrous words
Can throw onto a page with careless ease.
Can make a poem of a hornet’s nest,
And literary magic of dis-ease.

A writer who has phrases born aplenty,
Rattling round a mind that needs to write,
Discerning threads of life’s rich golden tapestry,
And reasoning that darkest black is white.

That has a thousand words that they can spare,
Plucked sweetly from a joyous atmosphere,
To place upon a sheet as light as air,
And thrill the heart and soul of all who hear.

Who shares a thousand phrases of the mind,
With others who possess an empty pen,
And writes upon the senses words unkind,
Yet soothing to the tortured minds of men.

Born with a heart where words are made complete,
And knows the way that life should set them down,
So spreads them in sweet order at our feet,
To write upon the innocent a frown.

She knows why life must choose to treat us thus,
And uses words that seem to make some sense,
Yet escapes the general notice without fuss.
A poet, past and future present tense.

I'm a writer, public speaker, medium, and spiritual thinker. I suffered from acute anxiety from the age of 16 until I was well into my 50s, after fearlessly exploring many ideas, philosophies, and tools, I finally found methods that helped me return my mind to a better normal. One of the things I hated about anxiety was the way people treated me like a fool or a problem, I have two degrees and I'm a (much) retired black belt, my IQ is decent, but I constantly felt like a complete idiot, something that was exacerbated by never feeling like the real me. The girl who could laugh endlessly about the smallest things, and had a real excitement about what life had to offer her. I didn't need anyone else to tell me I wasn't 'right', I knew that better than anyone. My mission now is to support people suffering as I did with a message of support with what they're going through, tools and ideas that might help, and a strong message of hope for the future. At 63, which I am at the time of writing, many people I know are in a rut, yet having beaten anxiety I'm now doing more with my life than I ever did when I was struggling just to get up in the morning, let alone face the day. It's a wonderful feeling - so the main message is that it doesn't matter how long you've been struggling or what age you are, when you beat anxiety you will get an entirely new lease of life - and that's fantastic at any age. On a personal note I'm married to my soul mate, we have 5 cats, and I live in the middle of the UK. I follow a number of fantastic thinkers, as it's important to immerse yourself in healthy thinking as often as you can, I'm a Toastmaster and professional public speaker, and I keep life simple and encourage my clients to do the same, and my friends.
