Believe It or Not

Hi dear readers and followers. I have been quieter than normal lately, and this is mainly because some of my time has been taken up by my new commitments with “Coffee House Writers” … yes you heard right!!
I applied to join the prestigous Coffee House Writers magazine two months ago, and I am humbled and proud to announce that I have been accepted into the group. I am now an ‘Intern’ contributor at “Coffeee House Writers”.
At the moment I am very much a learner, and I submitted my first article/poem to my mentor/editor this week, which is due for publication next Monday. I am both very excited and very nervous, but no matter what happens, I am going to give this incredible opportunity my best shot .. Now for my profile photo at the magazine, and of some celebratory Music …

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
