What has it been like getting back into a hobby 20 years later? Let’s find out. I also go into detail about why pursuing any sort of hobby comes with many benefits for your well-being. “Storytelling” blogs are my chance to go a little more personal about my life and some of the things that factor into who I am today.
Poetry … you love it or you hate it. Often you fall in to one of these two tribes, with very few picking any sort of middle ground. In my experience, you probably start by hating poetry UNTIL you find one that relates to you PERSONALLY. Today Is Shakespeare Day and so this is a perfect starting point to find out where you land on this matter.

In almost all the jobs I’ve had where the door had to be shut, whether for their reasons or mine, I’ve usually shed at least one tear or gulped a frog in my throat over.
