rZ2O4V You could certainly see your skills in the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

I am a physics teacher who was acquainted personally with Richard Wilbur. Many phrases from his poems stick in my mind and illuminate daily and milestone experiences. One of these is "the buried strangeness/that nourishes the known." For me it epitomizes physics, whose simple laws lie behind everything we see and experience in the physical world.
