THESE ARE THE RULES
What matters most is how well
you walk through the fire.

Tribute to Mental Health Workers
Diane Klammer: “I started teaching poetry while working at my first agency, transitional living centers for the chronically mentally ill. When I work with the vulnerable I am constantly reminded of my own vulnerability. We are all walking through fire in one way or another. Bukowski also wrote, ‘these words I write keep me from total madness.’ I heartily agree.” (web)
