For years, the Victor Stream Reader has helped me hold down my job as a clinical social worker. About four years ago, I realized it could also be an accomplice, a good companion for another side of my nature. A late bloomer, in my mid-sixties, I started messing around with poetry. Since then, I have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, a nice acknowledgment. My micro chapbooks are accessible online through the Origami Poems Project. My work has appeared in academic journals and on the Rhode Island affiliate of National Public Radio. Yes, I'm bragging. This has been such a great way for me to reaffirm my connection to my spirit and to the world as I go through vision loss. The Victor Reader lets me lay down rough drafts or simple phrases when I am on the go. It helps me polish and time my readings. And the novels and poetry it carries for me feed my head.
