Maria D'Alessandro

Welcome to my Hub,

"Scrittobene" means, "written well" in Italian. I live in Melbourne Australia and I enjoy writing poetry and song lyrics. I mostly like to write about what I feel and what I've experienced in my 57 years on this earth. Most of my work is closely and sometimes loosely based on real events I have lived through and survived, emotionally, spiritually, physically or mentally.

I have great admiration for Bob Dylan whom I believe is one of the greatest poets of our times. I enjoy sharing my passion for his work with people from around the world - both on Facebook and I was introduced to Dylan when I was 28 years old and have been listening to his work daily to date.

In recent years I have become interested in writing song lyrics. I have musician friends on FB mostly from The Netherlands who have graciously offered to put music to my lyrics. You can listen to some of my collaborations on my You Tube Channel. I find it somewhat thrilling when music is added to my "poetry":

Thanks for stopping by and/or following me.
