A Short Guide To A Happy Life
In this treasure of a book, Anna Quindlen, the bestselling novelist and columnist, reflects on what it takes to get a life--to live deeply every day and from your own unique self, rather than merely to exist through your days.

Poemcrazy is the poetic analog to Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird or Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones, two classic works on how to forget that you "can't write" and just start the pen moving. Susan Wooldridge is a swimming instructor in the wide ocean of language, encouraging us to move ever farther from the shore, dive deep, and dance on the waves.

Poet James M. Nordlund is a disabled mental health counseling supervisor into poetic revelation and workshop as an individual and group therapeutic milieu.

He been a member of the Teacher's and Writer's Collaborative, University of the St Lummox, Poets house, St. Marks Poetry Project, and more. He's been a co-editor, editor, written columns, and has had over a thousand works published.

He is currently a regional editor for Poet To Poet; out of N.Y.C.



They say, a
Rose by any other...,
Would still be...
Truly, yet, a
Direction symbolized
By a word, rose,
Fills the eye of mind,
Touches spirit,
Fathoms heart,
Aurally uplifts.
Life, taller in the
Saddle, richer in
Its roots, salutes.


Her quill beckoning,
We, blossoming, hear, feel, be
Worship, bliss, love of...

( senryu )


Hope, fraternity
Circling, brings forth abundance;
Humanity lasts.
