12.1.11 I started this blog in 2009. I had a lot to say.

In 2010, I wanted to start from scratch. A lot had changed and my message had to adapt, so I renovated the space and let it breathe.

Now as 2011 draws to a close, the urge to build has returned.

Anything that is not growing is dead. Therefore, I encourage you to comment and critique as much as possible so that my art may mature. Feedback is the only way to improve a system.

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this journey. Make sure to leave breadcrumbs, so you can find your way back.

The only constant in the world is change. Writing is a way to observe the evolution.

2012 was a hard year for writing. That's all we'll say about that here.

That said, 2013 is off to a good start. There seems to be an infusion of something new and exciting in the pieces this year that really speak to readers.

I am grateful.

The website is officially now loriswords.com, formerly loriswords.wordpress.com.

For the few.

I have not written poetry in a while. It's been 2 years since I have submitted a piece to this site. So much has changed in my life since the first day I needed this space. I still need it (so it still lives). I have become something so different from the person who started it 7 years ago and I hope that in time, I will return and make floods where there was drought. In the meantime, I write in a different space for different reasons and I invite you to check my thoughts out there too.
