Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
The inspiration for the poems: wow, rather a complicated question. Most of my life has been filled with loss and disconnection. So loneliness seemed to be my fate, as it were. Accepting that, I developed friendships and suddenly, unexpectedly found connection with another person. So, I suppose the short answer is loneliness, self-reflection, and discovery of self and connection to another person who is the right person.
