We finished our CERT training today. CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. In the event of damaging storms or other events the CERT will mobilize to help neighbors in each of the communities within this area. We can also be called upon to go other places. We received our hard hats, pack pack, camel back and other equipment after the end of class, along with a name tag for identification. I was asked to be the team leader for our neighborhood of about 80 plus home. I agreed. Still working on CLOWNS.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
