Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Published by vfurrmstheblogger
I was born in Tucson, Arizona, the baby of six children. I remember sounding out and spelling big words before the second grade. Words have always fascinated me. I began writing poetry as a child. I have very few accolades but nevertheless, I am proud of my writing and of them. I had one published poem when I was eight years old in the Phoenix Gazette, one published in 2003 in a poetry theology and I won a trophy and Poetry.com's (LuLu's now) 2005 Poet of the year. I have composed 100s of pieces of poetry growing up, most of which were lost. The poetry I am compiling now was written in my adult life.
I write as a way to free my mind and attempt to stir emotion and thought in others. Although I am devoting all my time now to writing now, I'm an orthopedic nurse (LPN) by trade, the owner of a small crochet business and I aspire to be a makeup artist.
I began this site as a launch to my upcoming books My Poetic Life (memoirs of love) and Fibromyalgia: Behind the Walls of Silence but it has taken on a life of its own. I hope those who come across my page will enjoy reading everything I speak on in my blogs and poetry. My hope is to reach the hearts of readers to inspire, shed light, advise, and spread love.
