I wrote this short, untitled poem sometime during college. (There’s a note on the back of it about a statistics exam. 😒)
And auditions gone wrong
And unpronounceable diseases
Over drafted bank accounts
And a lifetime reduced to
A paragraph on
Page E10 of the morning news.

Dimplesandgrins.com is on a joy seeking mission. It is a place of celebration and inspiration. At the same time, I am not afraid to explore the darker, sadder parts of life because life consists of both joyful and sorrowful moments (plus, a lot of other emotions).
