Letters to the Universe

Profile: Patricia Lowden

Mix one part words. Add coffee. Stir. Throw in some highways, jungles, moonlight, food made with love, laughter, good beer, scribbled on napkins, and a seemingly constant dialogue with the universe, and there you have it, me.

Mostly a poet, mainly an explorer, from New York, finding the story in it all.

Words to live by....

'This most of all: ask yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn question with a strong, simple "I must ", then build your life in accordance with this necessity; your whole life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour, must become a sign and witness to this impulse' -Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters To A Young Poet
