Journalist publishes poetry book

Story PictureInspiration to put pen to paper or in this digital age, put fingers to the keypad, can come from a wide range of emotions: anger, fear, happiness or love. For journalist Adele Ramos, a tumultuous break-up drove her to sit down at a computer and when she got up, the core of Phases: A Love Anthology had been born. Ramos promises that the work will touch every reader’s inner being.

Adele Ramos, Poet
?It wasn?t that I thought well you know, I should just sit down and write some poems. It was just something that, I guess, was led by the spirit and you know. I just sat there and I wrote literally for hours and so many of the poems that are in the book actually come out of that experience. It was for me a cleansing experience because over those hours, I was able to assess some of my emotions, some of my experiences, and go through a phase of healing. It?s never a complete process but it was an important step.?

Karla Heusner
?Have you had any reaction from anyone reading it that maybe it would have been something they would have written themselves??

Adele Ramos
?Definitely. Not necessarily written, but something they would have been through. I?ve had that reaction from people. It?s been nothing but love from the people who have read it so far and I?ve been very, very encouraged.?

Ramos’s second publication, the first, released in 2000, was a tribute to her grandfather entitled Thomas Vincent Ramos: The Man and His Writings. The poetry book is available at the Book Centre at a price of ten dollars.
