"I've been working on a poetry postcard project for a long time. The postcards have become a way for me to create new work, repurpose old work, connect with people in a way that is valuable, and that is held a little longer than an email, or a click down someone's social media feed. This is also a way for me to get out of my head, to improvise, to keep moving, to keep practicing, to see what's possible as I move through old notebooks of journals and notes and old broken poems to see if I can create new poem snippets that match and/or are cultivated by some of the images I have been creating, mostly captured by my cell phone, and sometimes doodled."
