I listened I read I wondered
I read to my audience
Vincent J. Tomeo, 63, of Flushing, has won SPL awards many times, and he recaptures his title this year. Vincent is a high school social studies teacher who discovered his inner poet after he temporarily lost his eyesight and attended a poetry workshop for therapy. Once he found the muse, he began writing his way to award after award at local, state and national levels. Way to go, Vincent. His sign is Gemini.
