You are a poet.  You are so by nature.  You remember in words.  In words you become who you are, who you would like to be.  By words we each better ourselves.  By words we tell the story of our life to ourselves, to those we love, to those who follow after.  In poetry, the story of your life will be remembered.  Here, now, I hope to teach you how, to teach you why the occasions of your life are worthy of remembrance.
