Lines Connecting Lines Flyer FINAL
If you have an opportunity, please stop by to visit the exhibit of which I am proud to be a part of. Two of my poems have been selected to be interpreted into visual arts by local artists. I haven’t seen the pieces yet, but I am very excited to see what they came up with. I hope that you can drop by and support the local arts scene.
“Lines Connecting Lines,” an exhibit of poetry and art, will be on view at MATV Gallery (145 Pleasant Street, Malden) March 17 through April 24. This collaborative project began with selected poems by local poets that then inspired area artists to create paintings, photographs and prints as an interpretation of the written into a visual form. Poems and artworks will hang side by side to enhance and extend the vision of each. All are invited to an artist reception on Thursday, March 26 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm when poets will recite poems from the show and artists will be on hand to discuss their works. MATV Gallery is open to the public Monday-Thursday, 10 am – 9 pm, Friday 10 am – 6 pm and Saturday 10 am – 2 pm.

Welcome to my effort. Yes, as a great procrastinator, it requires great effort to stay focused on something productive that matters to me. I’ll find any old excuse to traipse from project to project, and I rarely end up at the place I started. I find this maddening, and exhaustive. So it is with high hopes, and a greater grasp of self-awareness, that I embark upon staying the course so to speak.
I enjoy writing. Be it blogs, fiction, poetry, etc. I love the craft and the act of creation, the art in and of itself, for it’s own sake and end. I am happy to be able to do it.

Place of residence: Somewhere in the land of metro Boston. It’s vaguely familiar and becoming home more and more by the day, but when you come from “The Town” all else fails by comparison.
Favorite Color: I’m partial to all forms of blue.
Favorite Author: c’mon! don’t expect me to answer that, there are too many.
I enjoy memories of playing 80’s Atari better than playing any advanced gaming system that exists today.
Hope to be recognized for my paper clip collection. As well as my 27 rejected applications to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailiey Clown college.
