Carol Pearlman is a poet who writes prose. Her favorite thing is letter writing. Put a gun to her head, she says, and she can write anything. Her favorite poet is Arthur Rimbaud, and she also loves Homer. Like them, she’s spent her life traveling, learning other cultures, and living out her wildest dreams. A doting grandma, born and bred in Brooklyn, a self-described fish-out-of-water wherever she goes, she has no favorite place on earth, and is always looking for home. She’s had to pick herself up and start over soooo many times, and wants us to know it keeps getting harder. She agrees with Bette Davis who said, “old age is not for sissies.” Her poetry appears at THELADYUPSTAIRS.NET, and her memoir, FLATBUSH PRINCESS, is available on Amazon. Please buy it.
