Like many authors and poets, I am constantly looking for ways to promote and share my work. But during this time of struggle for so many people, in so many ways, I have to admit I’ve struggled with a ‘look at me, look at my work’ approach to marketing.
I remind myself writing and creating is what I do, and so I carry on posting my latest review or poem on my website or Instagram, but I must admit, in a world where there is so much suffering, it can seem insignificant at times.
To all my writing and poet friends, and anyone who has supported my endeavours in any way, whether here in Canada or in countries around the world, I wish you and your loved ones all the important things, like good health and dreams of better days ahead.
May we all recognize and remember what is significant to us in our own world, as well as in others.
Quote: Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today. Thich Nhat Hanh
