ABOUT ME

My name is Kamala Moore and my husband and I just recently moved to Victoria BC from the Kootenays, which also attracts many writers and artists. I have two daughters still living there and four grandchildren. We came for the gentle climate, like a lot of retired people and it was a pleasant surprise to find an active community of writers here.

In the past I have been a hairdresser, child care worker, and a counselor. Although I  have an MA in Psychology, the literature courses I took where the most enjoyable, especially the poetry classes. I have always written poetry , although there have been some long dry spells. Now it’s great to have the time to devote to writing and reflecting.

I have an e book  of poems and paintings called, Re-entering the Womb of the Goddess at Amazon.com , two free ebooks at smashwords.com and articles and poetry at Wikinuts.com under the pen name C.D. Moore.

Years ago I created a collage of how I saw my life unfolding from beginning to end. I remember I began in the center and at the outer edge I pasted a picture of a typewriter with disembodied hands in white gloves typing away in outer space and that was before the internet. And that’s where I feel I am sometimes when I write. Well, here I am in cyberspace. I guess I’ve come full circle.

I never thought I’d be doing this. Up until a couple of weeks ago I didn’t know what a blog was. I’m still figuring it out. I tried reading the description and the instructions, but that only got me more confused. I am a grandmother after all. I always say I’ve hit my technological limit and then something prompts me to go beyond it. So here I am in the cyberworld.
I’ve just jumped in and fumbled around till I got this far.

I Choose Rumi’s quotes for my blog theme because his poetry has surprised me with it’s beauty and wisdom over the years and I consider him to be a teacher of mine.  I know many others feel the same way.

After a long period of reflection and a reality check I decided to offer my poems for free. Even if I could make a few dollars it would hardly be worth the work of promoting and marketing which are not skills that I have or enjoy.   And so I will be sending my poems out into cyber space not knowing who may catch one; but comforted by the thought that the are some small part of the creative offering that is out there, and hoping they may become a moment of  comfort or inspiration for someone.  ( But please, if you copy one ,please credit the author.)

  1. Hi Kamala,
    well,
    I am pleasantly surprised by you activity. Your English writing is essential and modern and it is not so easy to write meaningful poetry. So my compliments, not only for the literary production but also for having jumped into the cyber world…
    With esteem,
    rinaldo
    PS what is Robert doing?

  2. So glad I stumbled upon the wisdom of Kamala Moore – like you I am still finding my feet in cyberspace – not easy when you’re floating about out there without a parachute!!
    Chris.

  3. I think you and I have a lot in common. Some of those things: 1) my blog for the most part a combination of spiritual and psychological, 2) I live in the Pacific Northwest and 3) I have a Sanskrit name.

    I noticed you looked at quite a few of my posts. Know that most of the recent ones are from the Writing 101 course. If you look below the list of recent posts there are two other lists. One is called Reader’s Favorites and the other is Don’t Miss. There you will find some some of my “regular” posts!

    A huge difference between us is that I don’t write poetry! I’m so glad you are putting yours out into the world.
