I have also learned that it is harder than I would like to admit for me to write something about myself that is not poetry. I like to say that my poetry is a small piece of my soul, and in many cases it is, but it is also very easy to hide behind the beautiful, carefully chosen words. It is easy to accept a compliment on my work, when it is a shield. I focus more on the art aspect than the story it tells. So, I guess this is a challenge from me, for me, "try to tell a better story."
