Piece of Mind: It's Elemental

I Give You a Piece of My Mind: A finely sifted blend of poetry, prose and politics, reflecting on the integration of body, mind and soul... I am a woman who would not want to exchange her life for any other. I am 49 years young. I am very like the four elements: down to earth, receptive like the water, my soul dancing lightly as the air does; and I am full of fire and life. I love the life of the mind: I write about what matters and how I feel about it.
