I started Red’s Wrap seven years ago today.

I’ve written very short poems and long essays. I’ve had a couple of missteps and some triumphs. A few pieces I wrote changed my life. I’m tougher as a person and a better writer than when I started.

And I’m not afraid. Of being judged or failing. Everything I wrote I would wear as a locket around my neck. Even if every piece wasn’t beautiful, it was right.

This is my place, my art. My only little art.

Thank you for coming here.
