I have had successes in my 30s.

From having my blog receive three blogger award nominations to being an anthologized poet in three or four poetry anthologies to experiences at three Poetry Slams in NJ I have been enjoying my 30s. I have a friend who volunteers with NAMI NJ who accepts a poem from me at least once a year if I submit a poem and she always publishes the poem I send her every year since 2015. It’s been a while that I’ve known this friend. We have a friendship and she is 20 years older than I am. This friend has a 2019 award winning poetry book. I’m so happy for her. I celebrate with her this success and want her to know she is appreciated and cool too!
