I am a psychotherapist and artist living in San Francisco. Outside my office window, the plum tree is blooming. There is a stack of your books on the floor next to my chair. Both the tree and the books sustain and hold me. I have read your poems to clients, friends, and lovers over the years. They have been life savers, guides, and anchors. Your poems have been amongst the most powerful spells I have known in this lifetime, a weaving of words and energies with the power to heal and transform.
I have had the great privilege to have heard you read some of my most beloved poems in my beloved city of San Francisco.
