Daniela Lorenzi was born in British Columbia but spent much of her youth flowing between Italy, the country of her heart, and various parts of Canada, the country of her birth. She is grateful to have finally settled in Victoria, B.C. where she is a teacher of languages and a constantly-amazed student of life. In the past few years she has turned a more focused gaze toward creativity -- through the written word and through music performance. She has had works (poetry and CNF) published in Victoria Writers Magazine.
The Dirt on Me
We drive by terra cotta squares bold within
I search the Atlantic
I turn my gaze across this immense continent:
"The Brain, within its Groove Runs evenly -- and true -- But let a Splinter swerve --" Emily Dickinson
