«Creativity means different things to different people. For me, creativity is a soul exhaling, a combustion of thoughts and emotions, a stream of consciousness channeled into verses and rhymes, or sometimes without rhymes. I have been writing poetry my entire life. It tends to come as a surprise to me when people ask me how I reconcile my creativity with my career in finance. Who says you are not allowed to be well-rounded? What you are as a person isn’t always what you do for a living. As a person - I am my poetry. I welcome any reactions from readers to my poems. They are all harlequin seams running across our multi-dimensional universe of energies and emotions».
Sincerely yours, Alla Bashenko
