Myself


#1
I retired from teaching 10 years ago. I was diagnosed with PD 4 years ago and still coming to terms with it. About 2 years ago I started writing rhyming poems (apologies to Wordsworth) which keeps my mind occupied. I've also written articles ( mostly memoirs ) on several websites.

many of us have taken to creative pursuits - its sometimes a side-effect of DAs. That's not in any way to belittle our literary efforts but does explain the timing. All efforts gratefully received in poets monthly thread.
cheers

Hello Boyo and welcome. Is it at all possible, given your screen name that you hail from Wales.? That might explain your poetic leanings!

As turnip has pointed out, there does seem to be a correlation between pd medication and creative outpourings. Maybe the meds release the inhibition to express what is already inside you? Who knows? As Ali has said Creative Corner welcomes all, the long and the short and the tall (sorry!) I shall look forward to reading your contributions.

Best wishes, and as far as I know poetry did none any harm, except for Byron, Stevie Smith and... Oh dear. Just as well I am not a very good poet!
