I hope you are enjoying your summer and staying safe. I'm Zoomed out but this is the way of the world now. How are you staying present with family, friends and your purpose?
I enjoy reading and I hope you enjoy reading my poems. If you haven't purchased my book yet, Freedom Knows My Name is available 1) at your local bookstore (have them order it and shipped to the store for pickup) 2) kellyhd.com (I will sign it) and 3) Amazon.
Thank you for supporting me and artists especially during these difficult economic times.
Gratitude is one way I achieve balance in life. What are you grateful for this summer?
Take a moment to check out a few things I've done lately and what I'm working on in the future.
Let's continue the journey together.
