Gail Le Gra is a young 58-year-old mother of six.  She is a writer and mixed media artist and is also a veteran of the US Army as well as a retired nurse.  Gail describes herself as very impulsive and has had a fairly interesting life as she has walked both paths: dark and light.  She is not religious but  is spiritual and believes in Karma and in random acts of kindness.

Gail’s poem “The Interloper” is about her daughter Mary Samantha’s  tenth birthday party while they lived in Ireland.  Mary Samantha’s younger brother Christopher has Down syndrome and autism and feels that every birthday party is for him. The family usually has to sing Happy Birthday at least three times as he loves the song. Christopher was six years old during the aforementioned birthday party, and as usual he thought the party was for him. Mary Samantha protested a bit but finally let him think that the cake and song were for him.

Gail calls this "The Lovers" and likes to use it on social media sites because she is in love with love!
