    Today's world has increased the number of ways in which people can divide themselves, separate groups of country, region, religion, race, ethnicity, gender, likes or dislikes, sports teams or types of games--all false for the soul! ________________________________________________ I often think about the nature of writing, especially poems which are a new medium for me.
