Meet Our Facebook Page Poet, Sid Bridges
Armed with Visions keeps growing…
Today we’d like to introduce you to a remarkable Warrior Poet. He’s a favorite on our website.
We are grateful for his poetic relentlessness. Since last August on his own initiative he’s posted over 60 quality poems to our Facebook page.
With a prolific effort like that it’s time to thank him and designate him our one and only official Facebook Page Poet.
When we asked Sid for his bio for our about page he wrote us this:
“Born on a farm in North Central Oklahoma. I witnessed small farms disappear due to government policy. Dirt farms became chemical farms.
I saw how the worth of people was dependent on “wealth.” I didn’t like the direction society was headed. There was something amiss with society, or me. Maybe both?
So I became interested in Freudian psychology for answers. A wrong turn, among many. My interest led me to obtain a masters degree in social work and a career in mental health. After retirement I have devoted my time to environmental issues and poetry.”
Thanks for all the great work Robert Bridges, aka: Sid… We look forward to many more poems from you long into the future.
