        1. I do the YouTube recordings on my iphone or ipad and post them to my Youtube channel. It is really easy to do, although I often have to do the recordings a few times over because I made mistakes or hesitate for to long. Creating a Youtube channel is also easy and its free.

      1. Thank you, Kaye. My husband asked me yesterday if my follows can understand my accent. I told him that you seemed to managed okay. I try to speak slower when I read, which doesn’t come naturally to me. Doing anything slowly is foreign to me [smile].

  1. Poetry allows us to explore the most profound emotions. A wonderful recitation, Robbie, that challenges us to look deeply into our understanding of what happiness is – even though at times the clarity is not there. I think the idea of anthology is brilliant.

    1. Thank you, Rebecca. The credit for the idea goes to Kaye who is very innovative and works hard to promote other authors. I feel really blessed to be part of such an amazing community. I am glad you liked this poem. My poems are always about series topics, but then so is most of my prose.

  2. I love the idea of an poetry anthology, Robbie, for people who have published poetry books or who have written poetry but have not published a book. Congratulations on the Treasuring Poetry and all of the work you put in it for compilation and editing. That’s wonderful. ❤

  3. Congratulations on the completion of another project, Robbie. I enjoyed listening to you reading your poem about happiness. I hope you find some clarity soon. 🙂


  4. Robbie, I also loved hearing your voice. Congratulations on your new anthology. It includes many mutual friends. What fun and a lot of hard work. 🙂


  5. Each of us has to define happiness for ourselves. Especially those of us who are labeled ‘super sensitive’.
    We feel so much for others that often we forge ahead with less as we are bombarded by more.

    Continued success with this venture!
