I was born in New York City, but I now live in Canada. I love my adopted country, buy I miss New York like crazy; I am a New Yorker to the bone. I have currently returned to school to get my MA in literature, poetry , specifically, because I want to be rich and I think a degree in poetry is the best way to achieve that, don't you? I love Medieval and Renaissance poetry and one of my favourite poets is the French medieval poet, Francois Villon. I am a beginning knitter, but I love the meditative quality of knitting and the creativity, too. When I knit I feel the same as I do when I read or write poetry: dreamy, but a lucid awareness kind of dreamy; I love it.
