About DanÕs Feature  +  Zooming Information

 

Dan Brady

 

     I love writing; itÕs great fun, good for the heart, mind and health. IÕm fascinated by how words fit together, chime, rhyme and flow from one to the next. I write because I cannot be silent; how could one be in this world? IÕve a theory: the right set of words, presented in the right setting is one of the ways civilization evolves. I ever improve my craft and seek such words so, should the opportunity arise, IÕll present that which may transform my life and or the lives of others.

     Poetry explores of the formless as it becomes form; it is the art of channeling creation, making sense of what is beyond sense, and a calling as eternal as any answer.

 

     Honored by small press publication and in contests, IÕm in the PoetÕs Eleven Series and S.F. Peace and HopeÕs anthology. IÕve ties with the Bay Area PoetÕs Coalition, the Haiku Poets of Northern California, led workshops, featured at venues in and around San Francisco and support the poetry community.

 

____________


     When inspiration comes, I take dictation; poems take minutes or years to settle into shape. Video samples: http://www.creativeideasforyou.com/writingmain.html

     I curate the series at Sacred Grounds, known for Good food and fine poetry since 1972 (streaming: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sacred-Grounds-cafe

     I also have three books Orphan City,  (i)n((s(i)gh)t) to;(r(io)t), and Haiku: Infolded Meaning available at: https://www.amazon.com/author/dan-brady
