Isn't it amazing the way words affect us? Just small marks on a page, or on a screen, yet they give life to imagery and emotion. They incite, invite, impassion and enrapture us. There are those among us with a special mastery of words, that have the ability to imbue the everyday minutia with magic. Billy Collins is one such master; it seems as though nothing escapes his notice, and he writes about everything.

If you live in the Tulsa, OK area, the University of Tulsa is hosting a presentation by Billy Collins in April. If you have read his work, you know what I mean about enrapturing. If you have never read his work, go now and get a book of his poetry from your nearest bookstore or library, and immerse yourself in an amazing world.

Ah, but such is the magic of a writer to bring their words alive on the paper and entrap their readers in a world all their own.

About This Blog

The name for this blog was inspired by a quote by Nietzsche, below.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I plan on this being the start of an incredible journey of discovery and creativity. I invite you to bring your pen, and come dance with me!
