video
This "Poet Reading"...probes...tongue in cheek...at one possible reason...why some of
us write...or blog...for that matter. Maybe this one should be called "Writing As Therapy".................Quester.

Poet Reading-7: Strings Of Lights

video
Today's poem in the "Poet Reading" series..."Strings Of Lights"...started like many
other poems and songs of mine...by first focussing in on the mountains...across from
my front windows. Often...a description of the mountains and sky...at that particular
time...is put down...then I'm on a journey...usually not knowing where it will end.
I like these journeys that I go on sometimes...hope there'll be many others........
....................Quester.

Poet Reading-6: The Big Brush

video
This poem..."The Big Brush"...was written some years ago...when I was in full flight...
having discovered the joy of painting...acrylics on canvas. Painting...is a creative
idiom...that is strong in utilising...our tactile sense. There's something very soothing...and therapeutic...about applying wet paint to canvas. I remember when i first started painting...some part of me...that had not really been utilised...in my
song...poem...and prose writing...rejoicing...at finally being employed. This and more
...made me realize...that painting could become...a refuge for me...as a creative artist. It was from this back drop that this poem came.............Quester.
