the Site and
does not equate to the professionalism or commercial quality of your
work. It has more to do with the honest expression of your life experiences
within a context of truth and meaning. It usually reflects your relationship
to your culture or your time in history. Most of all, it is an experience
of something bigger than you moving through you and seeking expression
read this, you are thinking you have no creative ability. The purpose
of this web site is to remind you of the power of the Creative Imagination...
it lives in you no matter what age you are. No matter who you are.
Who is our audience? I hope that many of the stories, poems, and images presented here will speak to teenagers and young adults. Later, we'll add an area for younger children. And, of course, older adults are, and will always be, welcome. Don't run away!
Why is the site called Lyricalworks? Lyric works of art express spontaneous, direct thoughts and feelings. A lyric poem is rhythmic and songlike, an outpouring of the poet's own thoughts and feelings. Lyricism is a good place to start if you want to encounter the Muse. She is shy and easily startled by the analytical mind!
Right now, the Web is a challenging place to bring the fruits
of the imagination. It tends to be a place where we overexercise our
left brains or passively take in the information that is on offer.
It's also a place where new technology is so exciting or complex that
it takes center stage.
Like many others, I believe we must retain a sense of what makes us human as we rush into our technology-driven futures. I am looking forward to a global community in which we have the opportunity to grow through our connection with each other. May technology become a wonderful tool for that purpose.
