Moments of passion, periods of discipline, an ongoing thread of determination spanning many years and a promise I had to keep were responsible for these words finally making it here.AUTHOR BIO:Linda Lee was born in Eugene, Oregon-but not yesterday. Her formative years were spent in various parts of Oregon and Hawaii. She is the youngest blood child in a gang of four, with two adopted members added later, who all taught her many things. She was blessed with two blood parents, one soul-parent and one must-have-been-a-karmic-payback. But, that is another story.Linda Lee was educated from the day she was born, not often in a place of formal learning. Her travels have taken her many places and left her with many more to see. She has written poetry since before she could put pen to paper and still writes illegibly.Linda Lee behaves herself in society as a Triage Registered Nurse. She lives in Eugene, again, with her husband, a son, and two cats.
