Lydia Lawrence

From childhood, I have had instilled in me a love of reading, writing and the English language. While my passion for poetry was found when I connected to nature through surfing, my poetry has evolved to include all aspects of my life. My works range from fantastical experiences in nature to very real emotions experienced in my job as a hospice nurse. My goal in all my writing is to convey the beauty and emotions found in the small and large moments of life.
