Harmony - Selections - A Poetry Reading by Joseph S. Fusaro

Harmony, harmony, harmony…. This word replayed on a figurative loop in my head after I release my second book Letters to the Universe. I had noticed a trend in my writing. I would get really frustrated, irritated, and overwhelmed at the beginning of starting the first 2 books. I would then feel this need to spill my frustrations onto paper. After the first 10 to 20 poems I would start to feel a little better. Still anxious, still overwhelmed, but somehow a little better than before. Then for the final 100+ pages of the writing process I could somewhat enjoy it without feeling like I was caught somewhere between the tidal wave and its undertow. Stuck in the foam with just enough air to choke. I was now treading water, but damn, I wanted to float. Why was one of my favorite things causing me so much stress? Was this a microcosm of my life? Did life need to be stressful? Does a job need to be difficult and boring? Does a relationship need to be dramatic and psychologically devastating? I had all of these questions and the answer seemed pretty plain to see. No. Could I teach myself how to separate myself and my life from the status quo? Life is supposed to be filled with peace, grace, joy, fun, contentment, and ease. I needed to find my Harmony. So I wrote until it made sense to me. You can purchase Harmony on Amazon at http://a.co/d/cWHPrAZ

Who Are You Out to Be? Singer/Songwriter Katie Zaccardi

Who is Katie Zaccardi? While learning about Katie Zaccardi as I researched her music and found out more about her personal story, I realized that there was not one particular way that I wanted to set up this conversation . I realize that we had much in common and because Katie Zaccardi is so many things. I wanted to allow this one to develop itself. So who is Katie Zaccardi? On paper she is a singer, songwriter, self-care coach, podcast host, and volunteer. In person, she is a radiant, uplifting soul that is using her gifts and strengths to offer help so that no one feels the need to struggle with anxiety alone. Tune in to hear her journey.

Letters to the Universe; Letters to Myself - Selections - A Poetry Reading by Joseph S. Fusaro

I released my first poetry book A Little More Time in December of 2015. This was only a few months after I took the stage to share my poetry for the first time with an organization called This Is My Brave. Before this I was deathly afraid to share my work. When I was struggling with bipolar 1 and depression I felt that my books had been used against me. There were only a few times in my life that I felt comfortable enough to share my journals with anyone. Those few times ended up in break-ups and long stays in psychiatric hospitals. I guess I never realized that my perception of all that I deemed wrong in the world seemed so far fetched? I guess I never realized that my fears would turn into paranoia which was perceived by society as psychotic? I guess I should’ve known, but I didn’t. It’s all well and good that others wanted me to get help and relief of these symptoms and persistent thoughts. The problem was that after my hospitalizations I was told by many not to write. I was t...

A Little More Time - Selections - A Poetry Reading by Joseph S. Fusaro

As I started putting together my poems for “A Little More Time” I wanted to make sure that I was being as authentic as I could without ending the book on a sad or hopeless note. I decided that the best way to do this was to start with only a few pieces from the years that I felt suicidal and gradually take pieces from my timeline leading up to 2013 when I first started to feel like myself again. One of the most important things that I figured out from writing the last 22 years is that I feel better when I leave off my journals with a positive message. Now, even on my worst days, even if I write 10 pages about how helpless, humiliated, and disgusted I may feel, I will make it a point to turn it around for the last few lines. When I end with pain, I felt pain. When I ended with hope, it left room for me to keep going. I felt a little more free. I felt a little more able to cope with my life and the world around me. There is a lot of truth to the saying “ We write our own story.” I...
