I used to be intimidated by poetry. I had trouble relating to the verse and spent so much time trying to understand the poetry that I did not come close to understanding it.
Over the years, I have fallen in love with poetry, though. I have come to realise that I need to enjoy a poem, rather than to try to break it down into parts. So I came to this book by @atticuspoetry and I devoured it. I started reading a piece at a time, until I became ravenous for it and consumed it all at once.
I highly recommend this book. Whether you think poetry is your thing or not, this book is simply magical.
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
