I am delighted and thrilled that my dear friend and poet; Jean-Jacques Fournier is with me today to share insights on poetry. Jean-Jacques Fournier is a native of Montreal and has been living in the Eastern Townships (QC) since 2010 with his French wife Marianne. Before returning to Canada, he lived eight years in the South of France, first in Vence, which is situated in the hills of the Alpes Maritime overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Then in Grasse, considered the world’s capital of perfume. It sounds marvelous, does it not? Jean-Jacques’s poetry expresses the emotional depth and breadth of the human experience. I am pleased to announce his sixteenth book of poetry has just been published, entitled. LOVE – by any definition – A collection of Love Poems He shared a poem from this collection in a recent blog post: “The Gift” of you, It is a marvelous way to welcome 2020, a new year and a new decade.
