Happy Round Birthday To Joy Harjo

Joy Harjo, born on 9 May 1951

While living in the Canadian West in the new millennium, I discovered Joy Harjo. Her poetry and her artful recollections of how she took care of her small children, while still being enrolled in education moved me immensely. It gave me strength and the motivation to persevere in a situation that most people can not handle. Sometimes writers can not fathom how much they feed their readers’ courage and soul. I have been sending my gratitude her way ever since. I was overjoyed when she got recognized in a big way a handful of years ago.

I enjoyed these recent conversations. They are long, but you will find memorable revelations in them.
