I can't believe I'm a member of this site. I'm not even a poet. I began to write simple rhymes a year or two ago to amuse the youngest in the family and it was at my daughter's insistence I entered an on-line poetry contest. I feel so lucky to have found VN and its wealth of fine poetry.
I live near the beautiful Mediterranean coast but could be equally happy almost anywhere else. Three have flown the nest but I still have a daughter at home.
I enjoy the simple things. I love to be outdoors in all weathers, the company of children (and easy-going adults), reading books, occasional visits to our enchanting Teatro Principal, chunky sculpture, interesting modern architecture, attractive full-colour graffiti, handmade things.
A big thank you to everyone for your warm welcome. I'll try very hard to write something worth reading but I'm not promising anything!
