Poem: Forgotten

Introduction
Originally from Salinas, CA, I attended the York School for high school, then moved out to Tennessee to go to the University of the South. After graduating with a degree in Religion, I gadded about Atlanta for a while and ended up with an AA in Multimedia from the Art Institute. After that, I worked for iXL, moved to Charlotte, NC briefly, then moved to Columbia, SC and married George King. We now live in Aiken, SC with our two boys and three cats.
