Biography of Junepaulette GasrelTibbetts
I have always been a dreamer...Always Believed in Far more could be possible than the actual reality...
It is in poetry, I am finally able to be myself and declare my passions.
I am the 4th of 5 children born to parents who came to the USA from Brittany and France.
I am convinced my parents had many dreams coming to this country and many sacrifices were also made.
It is because of those who walked before us that I am who I am...
In my life I have a husband and 3 children and twin grand-daughters and a new grand child on the way.
I share my home with 5 dogs who I call my 'children' and 3 cats.
All having been adopted because of abandonment- except one we chose to purchase.
I have traveled to some very interesting places- Israel, Jordan and Egypt. Along with France, Luxumburg, Monte Carlo Brittany and Nice. Landed by plane in Ireland which one day I would like to see along with Scotland and Wales.
Hope to go to Switzerland this coming spring also and if I could would travel more... It only seems normal that poetry and visiting exotic places would be just right for me.
When I am not working I like to make Charity Blankets for the homeless.
I can only hope at the end of my days, I have left a far better example for those who will walk behind me than when I came into the world...
How Can It Be...
How can it be?
That it is in the springtime
Of ones' life-
So much seems easy,
So much seems right...
How we squander the time away.
Chasing dreams, like cats' chase leaves...
How can it be-
So quickly comes the night?
