Catherine’s debut poetry collection The Quarter Life Crisis Poet”

Here we have a collection of poems I wrote between 2010-2015. It’s essentially 25 years of my existence, much of it was filled with pain, disappointments and sorrow. Maybe you can relate? Out of despair, hope can return and happier days can appear. I hope these poems can make you feel less lonely about the pain we all feel inside. Even if you’re facing a Quarter Life Crisis know that you’re not the only one and you will come out of it stronger. *Hugs!* Join me on my journey….

Catherine Vaughan Book & Poetry Reading at De Koffie Pot March 3, 2016

Arriving slightly late to the reading by Catherine Vaughan,  I can’t help but feel anxious that I missed out on of some of this lady poets carefully crafted outpouring, and the whimsical and energetic approach in which she passionately read through her material.

I arrived to an aptly poetic atmosphere; the room was beautifully lit with candles illuminating the oak beams on the ceiling, and the tables almost completely packed with humans keenly hanging on to every word. Catherine had reeled them in, I would be next. De Koffie Potholds many events in this room on the first floor of the converted stables nestled alongside the River Wye. A charming setting difficult to parallel in the city unless you boast any sort of river front property.

On Writing + Happiness:

I boldly confess, that I Catherine Vaughan am…. Dare I say it. I am finally in a happy place. “I am ha- huh- HAPPY.” It has taken me my entire life to get to this point. Everything is happening all at once plus I’m ticking off my wish-list at wildfire speed.

Happiness seems a bizarre state to confess it seems at odds with a True Writer’s Life. I can feel the despair crumbling away… Thankfully I’m never out of fictitious ideas to write about which is good I’m still having ideas and it is getting to the point whereby any true hurt to write about is quite simply out of date. It’s weird. It’s good. I know my primary goals is to write fiction but I identify more as a Poet and previously my poems were shattered pieces of my broken heart and soul. But those pieces have been swept away with time. I’ll continue to pick up those shattered glasses, or what remains of them. But I guess it is time for a change and I have to set new writing goals:

  • Poetry to become like story-telling 
  • Prose to become more Poetic
  • Fiction to follow the rhythmic sways of Poems
  • All forms of Writing to follow the melodic synchronicity of Song-Writing

Book Review: “Aleph” by Paulo Coelho.

100_0827

Aleph was the first ever book I’ve read by Coelho. I was intrigued from the start. I was aware initially of the vast success Coelho has had and is notably deemed a spiritual master so it came as a surprise to read of the frustration and longing he still feels in his life in the very first chapter. It starts out very mysteriously as J. advises him to reclaim his kingdom. And so he sets off on his latest book tour and decides to merge his tour with his wish to travel the trans-siberian railway. He meets Hilal and the two have a unique connection. Hilal is tempestuous and a gifted Violinist. She is half his age and the dynamics of their relationship deepens from stranger to ambiguous love. I liked Coelho’s way with words near the end on how he feels for Hilal. It is perfection. This book is ideal for readers who are open or merely curious to the many beliefs and practices within the vast spectrum of spirituality. Here the plot dips into past life flashbacks as well as how Coelho falls into his past life via the enigmatic ring of light exercise. The characters meet a Shaman and for someone as spiritually open like myself reading his story satisfied my curiosity for things outside of the physical realm. Coelho definitely leaves the reader wanting to discover more about the story and their own life.
