Inspired Inspirations

About 30 years ago I started writing poems for people who were dealing with challenging situations.  Most were written for people during times of loss, while others were just people looking for directions.  I would do about one a month early on, but that has since accelerated to about one a week thanks to the internet.  I put up a web site about 10 years ago - and the poems started going in different directions as people contacted me.

My work has been included in foriegn films, set to music by a Bulgarian choir and performed around Europe, and included in a variety of books including my own.  Several years ago I was approach by the U.S. Army Outreach organization.  These are the people that help families when a soldier is killed in the line of duty.  The packet for children of fallen soldiers now includes one of my poems.  The American Widow's Project also uses one of my poems for their sponsor packet.  

A few years ago I started experimenting with images and my poems.  I view the pictures as frames for the words so I look for pictures that will surround my poems in some way that compliments the words.  The poems themself has never really been a commercial venture, but I'm hoping the prints may be.

In looking around for a new domain name to spin off the prints I discovered  I haven't really gotten around to setting up the site yet, but I'm hoping to develop 3 lines of prints.  General Inspirational Prints, Memorial Prints, and Sports Motivation fo Schools.  Since this is sort of a new category of product, I'm starting to work on offline distribution channels since I don't see the site working just on the basis of native search.  Which brings us to today.
