I had to laugh yesterday afternoon, when I glanced at my desk. I was enjoying a post-work green smoothie while waiting to throw some laundry in the dryer. Next to the bowl (which was resting nicely on top of my behavioral health nutrition homework) was my copy of Frank O’Hara’s Lunch Poems. It was almost too appropriate, given the title, but at the same time, the “world’s colliding” factor amused me.
While helping others feel good by eating well is one of my main passions, I practically came out of the womb with a pen in hand. Writing has always been my “thing,” what makes me feel happiest and most at peace, and I love that I get to write about nutrition and health as part of my job.
April happens to be National Poetry Month, and I’ve been having a great time attempting to keep up with the “30 poems in 30 days” challenge—I actually kind of like having a long subway commute because it gives me time to put pen to paper and see what happens.
