Take a heart-filling journey through the breadth and depths of Radha Mulder’s poetry in this second book, a large Collection of 60 poems set against 60 visually-stunning photographs. A moving book filled with stirring poetry written on the topic of Love, in all its glory, in every hue, with all its passion and emotions that it evokes.

Love is not merely a concoction of emotions, moved by passion, and stirred by sentiment, it is a deep knowing, an abiding faith, a comfort and a place one can call home. Radha dives deep to explore this topic which creates the very bonds of life that every heart seeks, and brings it to it’s essence in this compilation of 60 poems, sure to engage and enrapture every heart that seeks, wonders, and longs for that true expression called Love.

Hi there, Radha! I’m thrilled to be doing this interview with you today. I’ve always had a soft spot for love poetry, especially poems that showcase love-infused themes that go beyond the tangible. That first question I’d like to ask is: What served as your inspiration to create Love Notes?

I have been passionately writing poetry since my teens and felt inspired to share my work for others to feel hope and inspiration in their lives.

♥ ♥ ♥

As a poet myself, I can certainly relate to that! And as poets, artists, and all-around creative types, we all have a journey. Can you tell me a little bit about yours?

It’s mostly in moments of stillness when inspiration starts to flow through—but sometimes, it can even be in awkward moments like in the middle of a shower that I’ve had to stop my shower and dry my hands, and find pen and paper, any paper, to capture the words. Writing poetry began in my teens and has been an on-going journey throughout life, which has been a source of comfort, understanding and strength to help me continuously move forward.

♥ ♥ ♥

That’s so beautiful and highly relatable. I’ve actually had bursts of inspiration while driving, which isn’t all that convenient. Thank goodness for text to speech! 🙂 Anyway, let’s talk themes. Love Notes implies that this is in fact a collection full of love poems, but may you elaborate on this a bit?

The most prevalent themes are Love, Life and God, which is actually the title of my first book. However this title is mostly about Love; love of others, as well as of the self. I have focused on Love in this title and my upcoming book will focus on my poems about Life.

♥ ♥ ♥

Wonderful! We already touched on inspiration, but that was for this book in particular. In general, who/what are your personal muses?

RM: I actually don’t have any muses, or perhaps I better say, the wisdom of the Vedas and life’s experiences have been my sources of inspiration.

♥ ♥ ♥

Wisdom and philosophy really are the ultimate muses. Now, I’d like to get into your writing process. Any poet, artist, creative mind I’ve interviewed may all have creating in common, but I’ve noticed a notable difference in the way they go about it. So, what’s it like for you?

I’m a philosophical person, constantly contemplating life’s meaning, depth, and reasons. Through this process, and in these times, I find that I can best find answers and solutions to life’s situations by expressing these thoughts in writing. When writing, I let the words come, I don’t censor or edit. I leave that for later. First I just observe, and then I analyze.

Excellent answer! I really enjoyed chatting with you about your lovely new book and getting to know you better. Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me.

      1. no worries. I’d gone to her website and had a wander and read. I think the whole subject of Love, is one that the community/world is missing out on. Putting more focus on it, would be a great thing. Cheers, Debi

      2. I LIKE both! the only one I’m not fond of is my real name…Debra. Had they spelled it the old fashioned way Deborah, oh that has a lyrical flow to it! cheers, Debi or even Debi-zen LOL 🙂

      3. Okay, that’s good. I like Debi the best. 🙂 My first name is actually Georgia. Was never fond of it, so I went with my middle name (Eva). Friends tend to call me Eva and family calls me Evy. But lately, I’ve been leaning more towards Evy, lol. That was a bit long-winded…

        Well, I didn’t invent the word zen, so I suppose you can use it too. 😂 Debi Zen actually rhymes with Evy Zen. Sort of… haha.

      4. names and how we react to them are so intriguing I think. our son would have called the baby Georgia (if a girl) but it was a boy. I do quite like that name. a friend here had called me debi zen a couple times, and I thought it kind of funny. My grandmothers sister went by Evy 🙂
