The Raven’s Toe

So long as you write what you want to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.

Hey there!

This is my blog. My name is Dot DiRienzi, and I am a retired editor, writer and indexer of medical books and procedure manuals. I am also a poet, published in several journals, and still not so discouraged that I’ve quit. Here you will find essays, opinions, poems, book reviews, pictures and stories about my life, my family, and my pets. I like personal blogs because I can put myself out there for anyone who wants to read with no obligations to agree. I have lived in Phoenix AZ for 20+ years after being a boomer from Philadelphia, PA. I miss the East Coast and my friends and relatives, the Jersey Shore, the wonderful museums and concert venues, the Schulykill and Delaware Rivers, but not the humidity.
