Hey, I'm Michaella!
Kauai, Hawaii · Member since February 2012

Self Portrait in 7 words: Poet, artist, healer, helper, gardener, head-in-the-clouds materialist.

As a guest: quiet, in my own world but friendly to all, clean, respectful, private, kind.

As a host: quiet, in my own world but friendly to all, helpful in unexpected, surprising ways (they tell me:), kind, gracious.

Can't live without: daily great dozes of silence, my computer, my plrk friends, the ocean, the earth and sky.

Want to travel: back to my country--Bulgaria, the Greek isles, Italy, France--Paris especially. And now, suddenly, back to New York and DC!

Favorite books in the past couple of years: Landscape Painted with Tea--Milorad Pavich, The Book: about the taboo against knowing who you are--Alan Watts, The Irrational Man--William Barret.
Old Time Favorites: The Tao Te Ching--Lao Tzu, The Inner Chapters--Chuang Tzu (translated by Jane English and Hua Ku Feng) the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz, Russel Edson and Pablo Neruda

Favorite Shows: should be listed in "cannot live without"-- Daily Show and The Colbert Report

Music: classical, jazz, fado, world

Food: any ethnic cuisine cooked at home

About me: currently building a community poetry site for poetry inspiration, exchange and collaboration among poets all over the world
