    The titles I listed below all relate directly to my creative life, my life as a writer of creative writing. I want to be precise about that! If someone asked me to write down the three titles that most deeply shaped my personality, or the three from which I derived my philosophy of life, or the three that provided escapist reading pleasure - well, those would be three very different lists. 1) A collection of poems by Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson. I'm sure many would agree with me that these two 19th c. poets are the two finest American poets. Whitman: the carrier of the American Dream, the Public 's Spokesman, the ambassador of American freedom; Emily Dickinson: Spokesperson of the personal life, guardian of the secrets of the heart, the caretaker of citizens' memories. You can see how much I identify with these two poets. You will, too! 2) Pablo Neruda - as big an anthology as you can find. Reading Neruda is the shortest distance you need to traverse to being inspired to write your own poem! 3) Take your collected poems with you, go to a favorite park, camp site, whatever place makes you think creatively, re-read your poems. Enjoy them, celebrate them, learn from them
