The Soothing Power of the Spoken Word
Mardine Carson is 87 years old, and began writing poetry in her 60s. She has always been a home-body, and very involved with family, friends and church. Dr. Carson tells me that she knows her mother is enjoying the poetry as she reads it to her by the serene smile on her face.
As a writer, I think there is no greater honor than to hear a story like this. Thank you both, Brenda and Mardine, for sharing it. Good health and God bless you both.
