When writing a personal web-page some people seem to be struck down by a strange mania that triggers the writing style of someone on a balcony or mountain bellowing out a life-changing sermon to a massed throng below. People's mundane comments becomes 'amazing', partners are invariably 'inspirational', and thanks always 'heartfelt'.

Other things you are almost guaranteed to find, if you run a search like the one below, include: flashing, animated gifs; coloured text; tiled background images, (often very dark); images with bevelled or embossed edges; enjoy...

"First of all I would love to thank you for visting my web page. This is part of what makes the internet so special and monumental in human evolution. I have degrees in school psychology and exceptional student education. When I am not working, I am listening to Bjork, Tori Amos, Bob Marley, Phish, Ziggy Marley, Aphex Twin, Orb, Moby, swing, electronica, jazz, classical, and world music. Some of my favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, William Gibson, Aleister Crowley, Henry Miller, Philip Dick, Robert Anton Wilson, Tim Leary, Slyvia Plath and Frank Herbert. I also enjoy modern and post-modern painters such as Jackson Pollock, Mondrian, Keith Haring, and Andy Warhol. Seek the truth. Enjoy my poetry because it shows the thoughts, anguish, and existential dilemmas of a fellow human being."

pony.jpgI am a happily married, mother of two GROWING boys (do they ever stop?) living in the 'wilds' of northern Idaho. It really is a beautiful place...everyone should come and visit at least once. (When you go to my links page, you can check out some of the cool places to visit here.)
I have been writing poetry since grade school, and have kept most of what I've written. I'm over 400 now and am working on my second 'volume'. I also love reading others' poetry - if you have any you'd like to share, please e-mail me!

I usually go by 'Wild Pony' - I've always loved horses and unicorns. But that was already taken. I guess I AM wilder than most, so c'est la vie!

bridgeinmist_wangel2.jpgHello, and welcome to my new website, Ethel's Creations. I hope you enjoy your stay here. I am learning HTML, so I have added some new things to this site and I'm not having to use the site builder. Yah! LOL

Most of my site is still of poetry, though. Poetry is very important to me. It helps me to let my inner feelings out. I have been writing poetry since my early teens. I love to write and read poetry. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. Please come back to visit me often. I have written hundreds of poems and will be adding more here regularly
