3 thoughts on “Poetry improves lives: a guest post by Jon Freedman

  1. Hi Jon – just found your blog through this guest post on Maja (Business in Rhyme).
    I wanted to thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings about the changes in your life – I understand how helpful writing, and especially poetry, can be.
    I write because it helps me understand how I’m feeling, what I’m thinking – and while its something I’ve always done, its only over the last year or so that I have committed to writing as both a true reflection of myself, and as an art form that requires me to work and learn and improve.
    And – I loved the poem The Laughing Heart by Charles Bukowski – “your life is your life – the gods will offer you chances – you are marvelous – the gods wait to delight in you”.
