My boys are close in age and share a special relationship. My husband and I often joke that they should have been twins but God knew I couldn’t handle that, so He sent them as close as He could while still maintaining their mother’s sanity. =) But really, the bond between these two is special. While each has his own distinct and very different personality (and hairstyle), they know nothing of life without each other, and are truly best friends. They wrestle, play, fight, share a room, sometimes just share a space while each focuses on his own thing—but always the bond is there. They are brothers of the truest sort.
My heart beats in a lot of artistic ways, but it has always been with words, first. And my favorite genre of words? Poetry. Not the rhyming, tied up with a bow, moral at the end, kind. The unpredictable, free form, emotional, full of symbols and imagery and honesty kind. The weird kind. It gets me. I've wanted to combine my two loves, poetry and photography, into something meaningful for awhile, now. So, I'm starting a new personal project: "Poem Hunter." It will be experimental, free form, thoughtful, and symbolic; and it will definitely push me. So, I'm excited. Because poetry is not boring, people! It's not even confined to old men 200 years ago! It's relevant, chaotic, beautiful truth and we need more of it!
